Chris Tyson revealing that he is on HRT certainly stirred up a lot of speculation and controversy online. Tyson, who became famous mostly through his appearances in MrBeast videos, told his fans that he had been on HRT for around 2 months now. Tyson also used his platforms to inform people about his gender identity and promote the availability of gender-affirming treatments like hormone replacement therapy.

Tyson’s reveal came after fans speculated about his suddenly changing appearance in videos. Fans were concerned about Tyson who had separated from his wife, Katie Tyson, the year before. However, after he came out with the truth, many condemned him for abandoning his wife and young child. Though recent social media posts on both Chris and Katie’s social media profiles show the 2-year-old Tucker doing just fine.
Ever since Chris’ reveal, fans couldn’t wait to hear how MrBeast felt about this. But the YouTuber has remained largely taciturn about this situation. And even though fans got a glimpse into his feelings on Twitter, they still wanted the YouTuber to directly address the matter. Although some fans went further than others in their search for the YouTuber’s feelings on the entire issue.
MrBeast looked uncomfortable around Chris Tyson
One fan on TikTok managed to compile some of MrBeast’s reactions from a recent video on his YouTube channel. In the compilation, MrBeast looked a little uncomfortable around Tyson and his usual antics. At times, he would zone out and stare off into the distance. And in a reupload on Twitter, the fan replies were unforgiving as usual. Was Jimmy aka MrBeast uncomfortable around Chris Tyson now that the latter is trans?

Although editing can account for a lot of it, MrBeast really did look uncomfortable at points during the video. In the comments under the video, many fans sympathized with Jimmy, They acknowledged how difficult it could be to adapt to such sudden changes. Despite his apparent discomfort, so far Jimmy has been nothing but supportive of his friend, Chris Tyson in the past week.

He seems heartbroken but in a situation where he cant speak his mind— TheGadgetFreak (@thegadgetfreak_) April 11, 2023
His expressions tell more than anything
Bro is stuck and doesn’t know what to do. If he tries to do anything to help his friend he will be labeled a transphobe and be canceled. He is just sitting there having to enjoy it when he clearly doesn’t.— Zach SloBenz43 (@TheSloBenz43) April 11, 2023

As hinted before, he came to Tyson’s defense against a troll on Twitter. This person tried to condemn Jimmy and Chris for the choices they were making. Subsequently, Karl Jacobs stepped in to defend his friends and appreciate them for being themselves despite the constant harassment online. It seems like MrBeast and his crew, despite some “leaked” DMs suggesting otherwise, fully support Chris as he goes through some significant changes.
