Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his moniker on the internet, MrBeast, the insanely popular YouTuber with over 100 million subscribers, recently paid a visit to India and he’s already making waves on the internet (on a bigger level than he usually does, that is).
The extremely popular content creator is now in India
He first triggered the internet by posting an image which many couch detectives quickly said was an indication he was in India, soon after which he posted an Instagram story confirming the same.
A while after that, his fans got another update, this time through his Twitter account, describing his interaction with a random person who didn’t know him but wanted a picture with a “tall white guy”. As usual, Twitter users took this entirely out of context and while many were taking the light hearted tweet as humorous, the replies were full of many who started debates on the culture and the obsession Indians apparently have with lighter skinned foreigners.
Why MrBeast is visiting India
The reasons for his visit aren’t exactly clear, although the internet is rife with rumours like an apparent meeting with S8ul and 8Bit Thug, popular names in the Indian Esports scene although those have been refuted.
More likely than not, this could just be a regular vacation since it doesn’t look like he’s filming any videos here as evidenced by another tweet from him that says “Cool seeing all the love from India, might have to film some videos here sometime”, indicating that he doesn’t have anything planned for right now.
That being said, as usual the internet did what it does best, poking fun at and taking a situation too seriously at the same time.
