Thus, he concluded by saying, “I’m just going to focus on the things that make me happy, filming videos, being a dad to Tucker [his sons], and taking care of my family.” Thereby, he put forward his reasons and justified the decision about taking a break from social media. One can see the complete tweet below:

Chris has been a strong pillar in MrBeast’s career, as he stayed beside him when the YouTube journey was just starting out. As the channel progressed, the two did celebrate the triumphs by making even grander videos. And as the journey went ahead, Chris got married to his wife, Katie Tyson, and now has a son by the name of Tucker Tyson.

While anyone had thought of Chris leaving content creation after starting a family, he proved them wrong by taking out enough time to enjoy both spheres of his life. However, the public criticism seems to have led him to take a break and it is hoped that he returns happily whenever he does.
