Jimmy Donaldson, known as YouTuber MrBeast, has been accused by former employees of creating a toxic work environment. The New York Times reported that 11 people who worked for the YouTubers with over 61 million subscribers said his "behavior changed when the cameras were not around" and "they described a difficult work environment".

Donaldson has grown in popularity over the past four years due to his philanthropic videos in which he donates hundreds of thousands of dollars to content creators or ordinary people. His business activities like the MrBeast Burger, which sold over a million meals in three months, and his hugely successful line of goods continue to build his brand. Based outside of Greenville, North Carolina, Donaldson uses a mix of friends, fans, and influencers from his hometown to create his content.
"Working for a 22-year-old YouTube star isn't going to be the most professional work environment," Times story writer Taylor Lorenz told Insider. "But as you position yourself as a company leader, or as the next Elon Musk, you should think about the type of work culture you are creating and what you are rewarding."
Nate Anderson, who edited for Donaldson for a week, told the NY Times that the YouTuber was a "perfectionist" and made "unreasonable demands." After Anderson posted a now-deleted video of his time at Donaldson, Anderson said he received "death threats and hateful comments from Mr. Beast's dedicated fans."
Matt Turner, editor at Donaldson from 2018 to 2019, told the NY Times that the content creator had "verbally abused" him "almost every day" and "called him with a phrase insulting people with intellectual disabilities ... and in." Tears dissolved ". Turner also said he was not being credited for his work and if he asked, Donaldson would "credit someone else".
Turner had previously spoken about his time editing Donaldson and posted a video in October 2019 explaining the allegations and posting on a new deleted Twitter thread he "yelled at, bullied, mentally referred to as r ---" and was referred to interchangeably by MrBeast as “A Day.” Turner also released a now-deleted YouTube video in 2019 in which Donaldson deleted the project file for a video he was editing because a compilation of clips of his philanthropy did not earn $ 500,000 for the title of the video.
"For a large part of Gen Z, who don't want to be a creator themselves, working for a creator seems like an absolute dream job," said Lorenz. "But we keep seeing that these developers basically have little to no management experience and can create a really hostile, stressful environment behind the scenes."
A representative for MrBeast reportedly declined to investigate the working conditions information published by the Times. MrBeast did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
