According to the user, the creator has been experimenting with life-threatening challenges. And the scale of such features only seems to be increasing. Of course, fans enjoy entertainment, but anything that might compromise the health of their favorite YouTuber cannot be worth it.

“I Spent 7 Days Buried Alive”- The video that has MrBeast fans worried

From going without food for days to surviving on harsh sea adventures with minimum resources, there’s nothing MrBeast hasn’t pulled off. But fans worried for the YouTuber, following his latest ‘Buried Alive’ video.

The 25-year-old, for his most recent YouTube video, buried himself alive in a glass coffin for seven days. The YouTuber brought some MREs and Feastables snacks, a five-gallon container of water, and a briefcase filled with his friends’ “essentials” in order to survive being buried alive. Meanwhile, MrBeast had someone watching him around-the-clock to guarantee his safety.

For the fans, this adrenaline-rich entertainment wasn’t worth all the hardships the creator had to go through. The Reddit user also drew a parallel between the creator with the greatest escape artist, Houdini, who was allegedly killed due to a malfunction during one of his stunts. And a lot of fans expressed their agreement in the discussion as they highlighted their concerns with the video.

Most of these concerns also have a valid reason. During the video, you can see the YouTuber constantly talking about the threat of blood clots. Further, MrBeast suffers from the chronic Crohn’s disease, making him more vulnerable to health complications.
