    This actually really sad. Some people are so fucking ignorant when it comes to mental illness. It makes me sick to my stomach.

    Man, I wasn't his follower or so. But I've seen some videos of him and he was funny.
    But those news... I really feel uncomfortable.

    Damn, that's what's the most people underestimate: deal with your mental health! It's easy to look happy but I think the most of us are not happy inside. Damn he was so young.

    Terribly sad news! The biggest problem regarding men’s mental well-being is as a man you bottle up all your problems and eventually this turns into more serious matters like depression and without really getting to grips with your issues this is what happens you end up taking your own life also him being black can be even more traumatic.

    Thanks but yeah I am really sad hearing this news. I always used to watch his streams for hours, looking forward more to his streams than to the actual game announcements. Rest in peace Desmond, hope you are with Randy (his brother) now.

    Why did he kill himself?

    I am 30 years old close to his age.

    He had a couple of mental breakdowns recently where he was even raided by the police and was put in a mental institution. After he constantly shit on his friends and told him he doesnt need them. Alot of his friends left him after that which made him realize how he fucked up. People took the clown meme way too far and it must have played a huge part in it too

    Didn't know the man, seen his face maybe once or twice in compilations.

    But that's just rough, ending it without knowing what could've been, what he could've become.

    Prayers out to his family. No one should have to deal with this alone.
