Chris Tyson from the MrBeast crew comes under fire for controversial tweets


Twitter users collected a slew of evidence showing Islamophobic, racist, transphobic, and ableist tweets from the internet personality and posted screenshots on social media calling Tyson out.

He was quick to delete all the posts mentioned as they gained the spotlight.

Tyson even went on a rant against Islam with a series of now-deleted tweets posted in 2017 following the explosion at the Ariana Grande concert:

"Between what happened at the Ariana, Grande concert and what's going on in the Philippines, why the fuck do we even take Islam serious? It's an old ass backwards religion that hates anything different and treats women like shit. Why the fuck do people still accept it"

Fans are appalled and shocked to see that a MrBeast crew member who has given so much to bettering human lives harbors such repulsive opinions. They called for a public apology from Tyson.
