Popular Youtuber Etika Found Dead In New York City

The NYPD's search for 29 year old Desmond 'Etika' Amofah has come to a tragic end. The New York Police Department confirmed earlier today that a body found in the East River was that of the allegedly troubled Youtuber. The police began searching for the popular live-streamer on June 20th following Amofah's disappearance, and before that, the uploading of a chilling video in which he revealed his suicidal thoughts. Many fans were hopeful that this was a moment of  being "overdramatic," similar to a stunt he had pulled in 2018.Things began taking a less hopeful turn when his belongings were recovered, scattered around the Manhattan Bridge. 

Following news of Etika's demise, many peers and fans took to Twitter and Youtube to share their shock, stories of happier times, and to implore people to pay attention to mental health.

 If you are struggling with mental illness or suicidal thoughts, remember that help is available. Talk to someone.

The NYPD Found Out the Hard Way How Not to Make a Twitter Hashtag

New York's police department had a perfectly fine idea: Connect with the citizens using the hashtag #myNYPD to let the beautiful people of New York share their experience with police officers. Well, it would have been perfectly fine if they had predicted the internet doing what the internet does and hijacking the hashtag to talk about questionable police practices.

Here's what the people had to say, courtesy of Know Your Meme.
