Jake Paul Promises To Donate $10 Million To End World Hunger If Elon Musk Gives $6 Billion

Jake Paul has emerged as the ultimate philanthropist as he pledges to fix world hunger.
The YouTuber-cum-boxer has pledged to donate $10 million to the United Nations if the below tweet gets more than 690,000 retweets.
It's unclear why he picked that number, however, you can probably guess that it's something to do with it being 69.
The idea that he has a cheeky 10 mill sitting around for a charitable donation proves he has amassed a very impressive wealth since he launched his YouTube channel and went into boxing.
But, he will only hand over the incredible sum of money if Elon Musk follows through with his offer of $6 billion.
The tech billionaire recently came under fire in a CNN article, where director of the World Food Programme, David Beasley, urged the world's biggest billionaires to do something better with their money.
Mr Beasley explained how $6 billion, which is just 2 per cent of Musk's net worth, would essentially solve world hunger.
He said: "$6 billion to help 42 million people that are literally going to die if we don't reach them. It's not complicated."
However, the Tesla founder hit back at the allegation and said he would only commit to the offer if he was assured the $6 billion would actually do what Mr Beasley said it would.
Musk took to Twitter to call out the UN official, writing: "If WFP [World Food Programme] can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.
"But it must be open source accounting, so the public sees precisely how the money is spent."
While it sounds like an interesting taunt, the director of the WFP was certain they could find an arrangement.
"I can assure you that we have the systems in place for transparency and open source accounting. Your team can review and work with us to be totally confident of such," Mr Beasley wrote in reply.
"Let's talk: It isn't as complicated as Falcon Heavy, but too much at stake to not at least have a conversation. I can be on the next flight to you."
Mr Beasley corrected himself and revealed $6 billion would not solve world hunger. Surprise, surprise.
However, he did say the money would 'prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation'.
