Keith Lee’s influence has once again proven to be a force, and this time it has completely turned one food truck owner’s entire world upside down.
The owner of Southern Taste Seafood received an influx of donations as a result of the MMA fighter-turned-food critic Lee sharing another one of his famous TikTok reviews.
“Today, I spent $450 on a burger, let’s try it and rate it one through 10,” said Lee in the clip. “I like to workout a lot and last night I did a ten mile bike ride and on my way home from the bike ride, I was riding past this street and on this street was a food truck.”
From there, he gave viewers an update on his initial video. In the video, he shared that due to his shellfish allergy, the lone food truck operator told him to come back so that he could accommodate Lee since the truck’s menu is seafood-based.
The reason for Mr. Gary’s lack of sleep was all thanks to Lee’s previous video where he shared the entrepreneur’s Cash App profile in hopes of helping him draw in enough donations to get back on his feet after falling on hard times with his business.
“It’s been 19 hours and the original video is almost at 17 million views and inside those 19 hours, he has accumulated $30,000 in cash app donations… that’s not including a single sale,” Lee continued. “Y’all are amazing. That blew my mind. Like, God bless you guys.”
Furthermore, he revealed that Mr. Gary expressed immense gratitude for being able to not only pay off his credit card bills and eliminate other debt with the donations.
Additionally, with the boost in followers on social media, Mr. Gary is slowly but surely starting to bring in the business needed to keep himself afloat.
