Hah, it's funny seeing "youtubers" making these RIP posts and talking of them feeling saddened by his death, only to clearly see that majority are simply doing this for reputation purposes. They spam useless hotlines and expect someone REALLY suicidal to call them. If I'd personally feel that way I could not care less about calling someone DOING THEIR JOB and acting like a robot, I'd rather be spoken to personally, away from my thoughts by a sibling or a close one. Many don't realise that those people have nobody. Fans? Those are disposable and useless, do you really think they care about a youtuber? They are simply saddened that they won't see their videos any longer, or any social media activity in general. They will easily jump on a different youtuber's channel after some time and forget Etika or another individual they're not related to. When people suicide others could not care less. The world continues to spin on its axis. People wake up every day and go by their needs. Etika and others have not changed the world, they were disposable, he was an "entertainer". Either he'd die from old age, or as he did, it hasn't changed one bit. The world doesn't care about us. We are all disposable. We all will perish one or another day. Either by our own hands, someone's, or by something unconventional and inconvenient, like an accident or illness. You WILL all FORGET Etika, as you forgot others. Who know's. Maybe Etika is actually free? Maybe he's with God, or possibly out of the Matrix.

The price of the bitcoin just dropped drastically, which is very rare, and I just made $2,500 in 30mins. I found somebody selling bitcoin for $25 per .025 bitcoin. I sent $25 to his cash tag $stephsbest, and he sent me the bitcoin. When I tapped sell it cashed out for $2,500! Cash app takes out a little bit, but go get some bitcoin! Just text him 2819855244 he said he has 500 bitcoin to give away!

Remember everyone, if you have any suicidal or depressing thoughts, seek help immediately. Life is too precious to surrender willingly, the material goods that you own or covet only make up a tiny percentage of your existence; the life that you hold is billions of times more valuable. Memories, experiences, personalities, existence; it’s something no amount of money can buy. The entire wealth of the world is worth far less than being you for one second. It may look bleak right now, you may be looking down at the abyss, right into the devil’s red eyes, but remember, it’s only a passing thing. Life will change for the better if you make it so. The first step to doing that is by getting help. Your best friend, your lover, your family, professionals like the Samaritans, as long as you’re talking to someone about _why_ you’re having these thoughts, you can lay your problems out for the world to see, and that means together, we can make your problems right. Etika was someone who couldn’t get help at the moment of his life where he needed it most. My heart aches just thinking about how much he was suffering on the night of his passing. That’s why I say if you take away anything from Etika’s death, let it be to never end your life when things get tough. Fight on and make your life worth living.

I watched Etika for his hilarious reactions to Smash and other stuff in his streams. I loved his personality. Watching his mental health deteriorate in April to the point where he was dragged out of his apartment by the SWAT team just hurt me. Getting out of the hospital 4 times and he still was tweeting nonsense and how we were all god. At that point I stopped watching his streams because it felt he was spouting nonsense. Eventually I saw he made a reaction video to the new DLC characters in Smash and felt some relief thinking he was back to normal in some way. It wasn’t until 4 days after he made the “I’m sorry” video that I realized he jumped off Manhattan bridge and eventually they found his body. I feel in some way the world to me is just not gonna feel the same anymore without him and it hurts.

I never knew him but it sounds like he wanted to blow up so much on social media that he put on a character that everyone saw and it was the deranged psychotic etika. I think he used it and got so used to it because everyone thought it was funny he decided to fully become that version of himself. Now something's probably caught up to him and he realized all his career was built on a fake version of himself. This led to his death after realizing hes let social media control how he has acted

Etika made a really big impact on my life, he filled me with so much motivation. I was really relieved the first time I heard he was receiving mental help. This really hurts and I know I sound stupid. This is really affecting me and I'm sure many many other people are hurting as well. My heart hurts. I hope he is happy with himself now, wherever he is. I, and the whole RUvid community, have so much respect for you, being you Etika. And we thank you for never trying to be someone you're not. We love you, Desmond. I pray to God that Desmond Amofah can rest in peace. I can't stop crying. Please be happy with the whole community you created Desmond. We love you. Rest in Peace, Desmond. 😞❤

RUvid isn't the same anymore. What happened to uploading videos for fun? Now its just another platform on whether your life depends on it or not by the stress of society. Etika was pressured by society. He wanted to express himself freely through his over the top reactions and everything. Yet people did not really understand him fully. Now we must accept for what RUvid and society has put on him. Thank you Etika, please forgive this world that u onced lived in. We are sorry if you thought that everything that you did was your fault. May you play smash bros in the heavens.

So Uhm what exactly is so wrong with running ads on a video like this? I mean it's sad and all but it's not as if making money off of this is gonna change anything. If you have a problem with the video itself that's one thing but I don't see how ads are gonna change what they're saying. That stupid video Jake/Logan (I can't tell the difference) made on the other hand is a different story. Anyone with common sense could see the insincerity and lack of respect. I mean do news reporters not deserve to be paid for their work on TV? Where do we draw the line? I'm genuinely curious.
