MrBeast fires savage response after Elon Musk asks him to upload videos to X

MrBeast fires savage response after Elon Musk asks him to upload videos to X

YouTuber MrBeast doesn't mince his words when replying to Elon Musk.

Billionaire and X owner Elon Musk has got himself in a fair few online scuffles over time - including calling American president Joe Biden a damp sock puppet and challenging Mark Zuckerberg to a cage fight.

Now, he's found himself in another online debate - but it doesn't even look like he was trying to be controversial.

Musk has inadvertently gone viral because of a conversation he had with MrBeast on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Elon Musk's exchange with MrBeast is going viral on X.

ICYMI, MrBeast is an American YouTuber with 225 million subscribers on the platform - he's known for wild challenges (like 'I Spent 7 Days In Solitary Confinement') and big giveaways ('Survive 100 Days Trapped, Win $500,000').

At the end of December, MrBeast posted his latest video on YouTube: 'I Rescued 100 Abandoned Dogs!'

To mark the new video, he posted on X: "I uploaded, go watch or I’ll drop kick you."

X user DogeDesigner replied: "Upload on this platform too," to which Musk himself responded with one simple word: "Yeah."

So far, so innocent - but that one word seems to have sparked something in MrBeast.

MrBeast - real name Jimmy Donaldson - replied with a savage takedown: "My videos cost millions to make and even if they got a billion views on X it wouldn’t fund a fraction of it."

So, yeah - it doesn't seem like he's going to be posting his videos on X any time soon. But that being said, maybe the door is somewhat open - MrBeast finished his post: "I’m down though to test stuff once monetization is really cranking!"

The exchange has gone viral, with many fans finding MrBeast's takedown rather funny.

"He told Elon 'You cant afford me lil bro'," one X user joked.

But others had a potential solution: "Post on both. Might as well double dip," another suggested.

It's not the first time MrBeast and Musk's conversations have gone viral.

In May 2022, Musk posted: "If I die under mysterious circumstances, it's been nice knowin ya." To which MrBeast replied: "If that happens can I have Twitter."

Surprisingly, Musk said "Ok" to this bold request - a response that racked up 284K likes on X.

MrBeast is a hugely powerful figure in the online world - after joining Mark Zuckerberg's rival social media app, Threads, he became the first person to reach a million followers.

He wrote on Threads: "I feel like I’m cheating on Twitter by using this app."
