YouTube star and philanthropist MrBeast surprised a waitress with a brand new car as her tip, and the reaction was priceless.
With his YouTube empire valued at approximately $20bn by financial experts, Jimmy ‘MrBeast‘ Donaldson has helped people worldwide over the past couple of years.
Most notably, the YouTube star has given away millions of meals to those in need through his very own nonprofit organization Beast Philanthropy.
MrBeast has definitely changed lives for the better, recently helping to cure 1,000 people’s blindness, as well as provide 20,000 children in South Africa with their first pair of shoes.
Now, he’s surprised a waitress with a brand new car in the form of a tip – and her reaction was absolutely priceless.
MrBeast tips waitress with new car
In a March 26 TikTok clip, MrBeast asked the waitress what the biggest tip she’d ever received — which turned out to only be $50.
The YouTube star then asked if anybody has ever tipped a car before, and suddenly presented a pair of keys from his pocket.
It’s fair to say the waitress was shocked to her core. “Are you serious? You’re lying. This is a car key, this is not a car,” she said with disbelief.

They then headed to the car park, where a brand-new Toyota Corolla — which was wrapped in MrBeast’s Feastables chocolate bar branding — was awaiting its new owner.
Refusing to believe it was real, the waitress then broke down into tears, explaining how she was actually late for work that day because her Uber was slow.
It’s unpredictable what MrBeast might do next, but he’s certainly changing lives for the better.
MrBeast catches heat from internet after tipping waitress a car
However, the internet wasn’t too happy with this act of kindness and once again began to find ways to point out the negative in the situation. Some commenters were quick to mention that the car would count as part of her income, forcing her to pay a higher tax bracket. Other individuals remarked about how the donation of a car reminded them of “the car-centric dystopia we live in”.
Another user lightly commented that whilst the act of tipping a car was nice itself, the car being branded in MrBeast’s Feastable chocolate branding wasn’t a great thing. This sentiment was shared by a fair few individuals, all agreeing that the decal of the car was the only bad thing about it.
Whilst there were some Internet users who weren’t too pleased with MrBeast’s most recent act of philanthropy, many came to his defense and even praised him for doing so.
Even though MrBeast caught a bit of flack for tipping this waitress a car, it’s unlikely that’ll stop him from performing another huge deed for the public anytime soon.
