Activists are angry with MrBeast as he built 100 wells to provide clean water for 500,000 Africans and people in Kenya

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Activists are angry with MrBeast as he built 100 wells to provide clean water for 500,000 Africans and people in Kenya. 

Activists are upset at YouTuber Mr. Beast for building 100 wells across Africa that provided clean drinking water to its citizens

Although the wells provide clean water to half a million Africans, activists are upset with Mr. Beast because they're annoyed a white male was the one who solved the problem.

"I’ve been doing this for 15 years, but we’ve been struggling to continue the work because funding, awareness, and advocacy all take work," said founder of FACE Africa Saran Kaba Jones.

"Overnight, this person comes along, who happens to be a white male figure with a huge platform, and all of a sudden, he gets all of the attention. It’s kind of frustrating, but it’s also understanding the nature of how the world is," she said before giving him a weak 'thank you.'

Others were upset that Mr. Beast "highlighted" the failures of the Kenyan government that maintained the stereotype that Africa is "dependent on handouts… and philanthropic intervention."

Mr. Beast predicted the backlash, saying he he knows he is going to get "canceled" but he doesn't care.

"I already know I'm gonna get canceled because I uploaded a video helping people, and to be 100% clear, I don't care."

Clean drinking water is racist.
