MrBeast responds to Leonardo DiCaprio following surprising shoutout

Leonardo DiCaprio recently gave a shoutout to fellow environmentalist, Mr. Beast, and now the popular YouTuber has responded.


MrBeast is one of the largest content creators on the internet. The entertaining vlogger is best known for his philanthropy, which often involves him giving away free stuff and helping out the environment. He's even founded his own charity, which is funded directly from the profits made by his other YouTube channel, "MrBeast Philanthropy." However, while his endeavors have almost always attracted high-profile influencers, it's still pretty special when a huge celebrity joins in on the fun.

Not content with just giving away money, MrBeast is now helping out planet Earth as well.

This is exactly what happened recently on Twitter. Leonardo DiCaprio went on the social media platform to shout out MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson.
