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.

Logan Paul Sparks Outrage After Sharing Video Of A Dead Body In Japan

Warning: This post contains sensitive material.

Vlogger Logan Paul is under fire (and rightfully so) after filming a dead body in Aokigahara, a known Japanese "suicide forest." The video, which has since been deleted, shows Paul joking in front of the camera before stumbling upon a suicide victim hanging in a tree. The video, despite claims of demonetization, spurred heavy criticism for its seemingly exploitative and highly insensitive nature - especially considering Japan's historically high suicide rate.

Logan has since apologized, claiming he "didn't do it for the views," but the critical tweets - and memes - are still pouring in.
