Mr. Beast arrested before his meeting with Elon Musk at the Twitter HQ?
As part of an elaborate revenge hoax, fellow YouTuber Airrack had Jimmy Donaldson, better known by his stage name, Mr. Beast, arrested and hauled into custody.
Mr. Beast was supposed to meet with Tesla owner Elon Musk in Twitter’s New York headquarters, but Musk cancelled at the last minute, thwarting Airrack’s plans.

Then, Mr. Beast invited Airrack (actual name: Eric Decker) to North Carolina (Jimmy’s home state) for a separate “Mastermind” meeting.
Decker, who had previously hired the New York Police Department to help him prank Mr. Beast, succeeded in enlisting their assistance in the making of the YouTube video once more.
Once Mr. Beast was restrained, he initially cooperated but soon began to act suspiciously.
Mr. Beast was taken into custody when an officer informed him that he was wanted on a warrant for “communicating threats.”
The police arrested Jimmy and locked him up in a holding cell without providing him with any refreshments. When he received his one and only phone call, it was Airrack on the other end to spill the beans.
Decker told Jimmy that he and his best friend Tyler Blanchard from the Airrack channel had planned the prank thought it would be funny.
Jimmy implied that he would spend millions of dollars exacting his vengeance on Mr. Beast if the latter pranked him in return and the two of them started a fight.
