YouTuber Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson is known for his massive giveaways and charitable endeavors, but he recently asked someone else for a handout for once.

On Twitter earlier this week, MrBeast reached out to Jeff Bezos with a small request. He tweeted: “Today feels like a great day for Jeff Bezos to give me a billion dollars for fun.”

At first, it seemed like a harmless jab at one of the richest men alive. But MrBeast was shocked when Bezos took notice.

Jeff Bezos reacts to MrBeast callout

Bezos is currently one of the richest men in the world. With a $150 billion net worth, he is currently the third-richest behind infamous Twitter killer Elon Musk and Bernard Arnault.

While MrBeast is nowhere near this level of wealth, his own net worth is nothing to scoff at. He is currently said to be worth around $500 million, according to Forbes. The only difference is that MrBeast is often using his money to buy shoes for third-world communities or give thousands of people their hearing back.

The charitable YouTuber decided to call out Bezos, but was clearly shocked when the billionaire took notice.

Soon after tweeting at him, MrBeast took a screenshot that showed Bezos had actually followed him on Twitter.

In response, fans asked MrBeast to fork over a million bucks, especially if he gets his desired billion from Bezos.

The Amazon owner has yet to respond publicly to MrBeast so it’s unclear if he has any intentions of paying him or collaborating on anything in the future. It’s very possible that Bezos could help fund a future MrBeast video that’s bigger than ever — he has shown that anything is possible.

For now, MrBeast will have to remain a humble multi-millionaire.
