Infamous YouTuber MrBeast has listed a whole bunch of reasons as to why he thinks the end of the streaming platform is nigh…
“I hope he is right. TikTok is the enemy of everything good!” one person wrote.
“Tiktok is the only app that I have never even downloaded once and that’s because of the lame videos of TikTokers I see on other social media platforms like FB, Twitter etc,” another agreed.
MrBeast, whose real name is Jimmy Donaldson, is never one to mince his words.
But his latest comments have caused quite the stir.
On a recent episode of the Full Send Podcast, he gave his opinion on TikTok…
Including his prediction for the app.
MrBeast was asked if TikTok would eventually take over his beloved YouTube…
He explained: “I thought the same but YouTube Shorts, they’ve really taken some huge strides.”
The reason? Money, of course!
“So starting in January, if you get like, hypothetically, a billion views on TikTok, whatever that is, that’s like $1,000. A billion views over here on YouTube? I mean, that could literally make you like $100,000,” MrBeast said.
The host then asked: “Is TikTok going to adapt to that, you think?”
To which MrBeast replied: “Yeah, I think they’re going to be forced to.”
He was also asked what he thought this meant for the biggest TikTok stars.
“Charli [D’Amelio], Addison [Rae] – all these people, if they can just literally do what they’re doing but over on YouTube and make a bag off of shorts and then on top of that, that boosts long form which makes even more money, you’re gonna be crazy to be a TikTok first content creator,” MrBeast said.
The YouTuber admitted that he sees a mass migration to YouTube Shorts in the future.
Where they will be able to, “‘gain subs, get more views on your long-form, and make f****** money.”
“You really think TikTok over here printing tens of billions of dollars is just overnight going to go, ‘You know what? Half of these tens of billions, we’re just gonna give it away.’
“All I’m saying is, once this Partner Program kicks into effect on Shorts, I think you’re gonna see a lot of big TikTokers coming over here,” he said.
What do you think of his prediction?
Do you see the end of TikTok coming soon?
