The video in question that criticized Chris for "showing more feminine traits" and argued that his transition would "damage" MrBeast's brand has generated over 2 million views in under 18 hours. Fans called out the creator of the video, SunnyV2, for making Chris' transition sound like it was a "business decision" and making it seem like Chris isn't a real person anymore but just an "over the top LGBT character."
Here is the video:
Since coming out, Chris has received both support and hate from MrBeast's fans. Some of the hate he has received argued that his son would "lose a father figure" after it was revealed that he got a divorce. Chris replied to this criticism, stating that he's going to be a great parent and that his son is fine with having him around.
MrBeast, along with other content creators and YouTube themselves, have all declared their support via social media. Hopefully, more people will be open to Chris' transition as he appears more in new MrBeast videos. It's important to stand up against hate and transphobia, and to support those who are brave enough to be true to themselves.
