MrBeast, a popular YouTuber, disclosed that he declined an invitation to join a submarine trip to the Titanic, which tragically imploded recently.
During an expedition organized by OceanGate Expeditions, aimed at providing an expensive tourist experience, five individuals lost their lives while exploring the Titanic wreckage. The victims included OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, billionaire explorer Hamish Harding, French diver Paul-Henri Nargeolet, Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood, and his son Suleman Dawood.
On Twitter, MrBeast wrote: “I was invited earlier this month to ride the Titanic submarine, I said no. Kind of scary that I could have been on it.”
As well, he showed a screenshot of a message sent to his phone from a friend, which reads: “Also, I’m going to the Titanic in a submarine late this month. The team would be stoked to have you along.”
Although the submarine story is undoubtedly a strategy, it goes without saying that life without MrBeast would be quite strange if he did happen to set foot in the doomed submarine.
