MrBeast is a huge personality and has turned into an extremely popular celebrity across the globe thanks to his content on the YouTube platform. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that his name is enough, for anyone to instantly attract eyeballs.

However, it looks like there are some people in real-life who are actually using MrBeast’s name, along with his brand’s uniqueness, to make a profit out of it. Not to mention that they do it in a very unacceptable and wrong way to say the least.

A MrBeast Gadget shop exists in Malaysia!

One Reddit user recently came up with a post on the social platform. The person, named as u/IvanThelilWolfy, shared a video while mentioning shocking details about it.

According to the user, the video featured a shop, operating in Malaysia under the branding of ‘MrBeast Gadget’. Not just that, the person who runs this shop also uses the actual logo of Jimmy’s infinitely popular YouTube channel. “Don’t you think this is a bit too far? I mean, this dude is trying to earn a living but why steal MrBeast’s logo and name? Idk what do y’all think about this”, wrote the Redditor.

This shop offers items like phone covers, cables, and all sorts other electronic devices that one can think of. But it’s actually quite unbelievable to witness a situation like this. While using popular brand names for different purposes is nothing new, it’s shocking in this case as it involves a personality like MrBeast.

Meanwhile, fans on Reddit were also very confused and astonished to know that something like this exists out of their knowledge. Few users were not really surprised though, since they are aware of such practices. Others, however, were wondering about the time when MrBeast will learn about this gadget shop that uses his name and logo.

On the other hand, some fans mentioned that Jimmy is so nice that he will eventually end up donating money to the person who’s exploiting his brand’s logo. Few people assumed that the YouTuber will hardly get to know about it, due to him being so much busy already with a lot of stuff.
