YouTube star Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson suggested a menu addition to his Beast Burger restaurants, but immediately regretted it after fans begged the creator to rethink his idea.
MrBeast is one of the most popular creators in the world and has almost 100 million subscribers on YouTube to date. His goofy philanthropy videos, where he frequently donates millions to fans, are arguably some of the best content on the platform.
In 2020, Donaldson expanded his YouTube empire with the launch of his Beast Burger restaurants, which are now available in over 1,000 locations across the US and UK.
While burgers are his typical fare, the content creator had the idea to start selling sushi on his burger chain, but quickly regretted the suggestion after fans weighed their thoughts.
A fan of the YouTube star revealed in a May 19 tweet that a food delivery service listed Jimmy’s restaurant chain as “celebrating Asian culture and cuisine.”
The tweet, which now has nearly 100,000 likes, actually caught the attention of MrBeast himself and sparked the idea to start serving Asian food. “Should we start selling sushi? Haha,” the YouTuber replied.
Should we start selling sushi? Ha ha

However, her fans weren’t exactly sold on the idea of sushi. Many have started pointing out Beast Burger’s current issues with undercooked food.
“No. Burgers aren’t already cooked to safety standards in some places,” one fan replied. “Imagine killing someone with bad or mismanaged fish.”

“As someone who works for one of the ghost kitchens you use. Don’t let us make sushi,” another replied.

It doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing sushi on the Beast Burger menu anytime soon. However, as one fan noted, Sushi Beast translates to Sushi-ju in Japanesewhich sounds pretty cool.
