MrBeast under fire for asking fans to fix Feastables displays for him


MrBeast is known for his charitable work but now he’s calling on fans to do some free work for him — cleaning up his chocolate bar displays.

YouTuber Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson is largely known for his epic videos and charitable endeavors, but he has recently journeyed into a few different industries. First, MrBeast opened a fast food burger chain. Now, the YouTuber has launched a chocolate bar and is calling on fans to help him sell it.

MrBeast recently announced that he was launching a chocolate bar in three flavors — original, crunch, and almond. The chocolate bars are being sold under a brand called Feastables. The "delicious AF" chocolate bars are selling fast with some flavors, including Deez Nuts, selling out multiple times.

The reviews have been largely positive, with fans initially purchasing the bars to support MrBeast but then sharing how delicious they found the flavors.

Despite the positive feedback, MrBeast has been heavily criticized for a weird request he had after his chocolate bars started showing up on grocery store shelves across the country.

MrBeast begs fans for help with Feastables displays

A few days ago, MrBeast told his following on Twitter that he needed their help.

"Next time you see Feastables in Walmart (and soon to be new retailers), if you could clean up the presentation and make it look better that'd make me very happy," MrBeast tweeted, adding that he would be building a team to do this in the future.

MrBeast also included a before and after photo to show his fans exactly how they should make the shelves look.

It seemed like an innocent request at first, but the tweet soon became controversial when some called MrBeast out for expecting free labor from fans. A few tweets pointed out that MrBeast admitted to needing to hire a team to do this, meaning he admitted it was work that deserved some pay — making it all the more weird that he wanted fans to do it for free.

Other fans, however, were quick to heed the call. Many told MrBeast that they had already rushed to Walmart to help him. Some even joked that they would mess up the other brands' displays to help MrBeast's chocolate stand out even more.

Others offered advice to MrBeast to help improve his sales.

What do you think? Will you be rushing to Walmart to fix the Feastables displays for MrBeast?
