So what happened to Chris from MrBeast?

Contentious Twitter posts and ensuing scandal:
Since Chris is a major media personality who routinely stars in videos, commercials, and posts, he has a wide fan following. This also means that Chris is always surrounded by people, albeit online.
Tweets, and controversial ones, among them, get picked up soon, and that is what happened with Chris from MrBeast too. Apparently, some of his tweets from 2017 have been leaked, which project him as a hateful person with radical ideologies.
His tweets have been deemed as homophobic, racist, and transphobic by many of his followers. This also led to a heated social media campaign. Chris has also posted disparaging comments about the Islamic faith, for which he has been called out and shamed.
Owing to a large-scale social media boycott and public shaming, Chris from MrBeast deleted his tweets from way back in 2017 and also tendered an apology to his fans. Eventually, this scandal died down, and everything went back to normalcy.
