Another day, another beef in the world of online content creation – and this time, it’s between MrBeast and Rosanna Pansino.

While it’s normally the likes of Logan Paul or more recently SSSniperWolf and JacksFilms sparking drama, this time MrBeast and Rosanna Pansino are the ones causing all the fuss.

So what’s it all about?

MrBeast, real name Jimmy Donaldson, is the biggest name on YouTube with 204 million subscribers. Pansino is a big name too, with more than 14.5 million subscribers herself.

However, she’s accusing him of lying about the outcome of a recent viral challenge.

Pansino competed in one of the three hide-and-seek challenges hosted by MrBeast in Creator Games 3.

Pansino is now accusing MrBeast of manipulating the edit to present a version of events which didn’t really happen and effectively reducing her role in the clip.

The YouTuber posted a message on Twitter/X with the caption: “I have been allowing others to treat me poorly in private for many years and I’m fed up.

“I am going to start standing up for myself and finding my voice.”

The content creator wrote: “When the video was released I was shocked, disappointed, and felt hurt. MrBeast (Jimmy) had edited the video to make me look like I performed worse than I did,” Pansino said. “This was extra upsetting because I genuinely believed him when he said that his videos are ‘authentic and real’.”

Pansino also disputed the top three shown in the video, which were Zach King, Logan Paula and Larray.

“The final [three] people were actually Zach, Quackity, and myself,” Pansino said. “This is what actually happened. Despite Jimmy editing out the only female in the top [three], I was proud of what I achieved.”

Pansino doesn't appear to be backing down either as she has now released a series of DM's which she claims were from Donaldson who was asking her to ring him.

In the leaked messages Donaldson appeared to ask Pansino to call him to "figure out what happened." She explained that she had no intention of causing drama but was "really hurt by the editing decisions."

She added: "Editing me out of the top 3 and making me look like I performed worse than I did felt awful. Quackity was also edited out of the top 3 and he also talked about it."

Donaldson replied: "Obviously I wasn’t trying to make you look bad! Just give me a time we can chat, I’m not mad or anything. Just want to help."

Pansino added: "I’ll give you some time to look into it and remember and then we can discuss. I’m more than happy to review all the raw footage to help show the timeline of events. Feel free to send it over to my team. Let me know.”

She has also claimed that when she asked Donaldson for 'raw footage' he went 'radio silent' on her.

MrBeast has yet to respond to the message on social media.
