MrBeast is the world’s biggest individual YouTuber with over 171 million subscribers. His legal name is Jimmy Donaldson, and back In 2020, Donaldson launched MrBest Burger and has been using a company called Virtual Dining Services to prepare the food. But there have been many complaints about the food quality, and Donaldson has had enough. He is suing the vendor for making “inedible food,” which he said has “irreparably harmed” his reputation.
MrBeast Burger is an entirely delivery service, and the burgers are prepared in “about 1,700 ghost kitchens” in the United States. The problem is that complaints have been pouring in about the quality of the food being delivered. Some of the customer reviews have referred to the burgers as “disgusting,” “revolting,” and a “terrible meme burger,” according to The Guardian.
Back in June, Donaldson tweeted to an upset fan, “Yeah, the problem with Beast Burger is I can’t guarantee the quality of the order. When working with other restaurants it’s impossible to control it sadly.”
In the lawsuit, Donaldson alleges that “Virtual Dining Concepts was more focused on rapidly expanding the business as a way to pitch the virtual restaurant model to other celebrities for its own benefit, it was not focused on controlling the quality of the MrBeast Burger customer experience and products.”
Virtual Dining Concepts doesn’t agree. In response to the lawsuit, their lawyers said: “The complaint is riddled with false statements and inaccuracies and is a thinly veiled attempt to distract from Mr. Donaldson’s and Beast Investments’ breaches of the agreement between the parties, including Mr. Donaldson’s recent false, disparaging statements regarding the MrBeast brand and VDC.”
