RIP Etika. My heart is so so heavy hearing this news. I hope that the community FINALLY realizes that creators are human beings with real, valid feelings. Someone having followers doesn’t excuse cyberbullying. It’s so easy to be kind to one another!

@lookner I’m extremely distraught and hurt by his death. I never would have thought such a beautiful and humorous soul would be taken from our world because of his own demons. He didn’t deserve it. I can’t stop crying.
Rest in Peace Etika. The world will miss you.

At midnight on June 20, 2019, he posted what many think is a suicide video. The video is simply titled ‘I’m Sorry,’ and in the description, Etika wrote some trouble things that left fans worried he might be thinking about taking his own life.
“I’ve lived an incredible life filled with thrills and happiness,” he wrote. “Even though I always was an odd blal out, I used that as my strength and brought together an incredible community of insane wild bois just like me. God I’ll miss you all so much.” He later added, “My time ends now, but if there is a way for me to, I’ll send you all as many blessings as I can from the other side.”
Rest in peace etika ?

In the video, he made similar sentiments. ” I wasn’t suicidal before, I really wasn’t,” he admitted. “But one thing I didn’t realize is that the walls were closing around me so fast. I had no intention of killing myself, but I would always push it too far. I guess I am mentally ill.” He also apologized to anyone he had betrayed over the years, and talked about his life in the past tense. Some fans pointed out the fact that the video was clearly filmed in the daylight, but didn’t get posted on Etika’s page until midnight. This has left them worried that he filmed the video earlier in the day, then scheduled it to go up after possibly took his own life, as he stated he was planning on doing in the video.
Etika has a history of mental health issues, and this is not the first time he’s posted something disturbing like this. In 2018, he cryptically wrote on Reddit, “It’s my turn to die,” once again leaving fans severely concerned. Hours later, he returned to the site and clarified, “Guys I’m fine, please stop worrying about me LOL. You know I like to be overdramatic. Carry on!!!” Because of this history, some fans are wondering if Etika is just being ‘overdramatic’ again, but others still genuinely fear it could be a boy who cried wolf situation, where something really may be wrong this time.
Words cannot describe how devastating hearing these words are. Fan or not, hearing about the death of anyone hurts, especially if they are within your community. As a part of this community, I hope for the best for everyone who was affected by Etika, and may Etika rest in peace. https://t.co/Dzpsfojs9L
