Huey Haha, a very popular presence on TikTok and YouTube, died this week, according to a message on his official Instagram page.
He was 22 years old.
“Rest In Peace to Huey Ha. Huey Ha passed away October 25, 2021. He loved and appreciated every single one of his supporters,” reads the unfortunate post.
It also references a GoFundMe page that has been set up in Huey’s honor with proceeds will planned to go towards funeral costs and his two-year old daughter.
His family, loved ones, and countless fans are now in mourning.
No official cause of death has been announced for Haha.
The native of Stockton, California had racked up more than 4.5 million views on TikTok at the time of his passing.
The social media personality showed up on the digital scene about two years ago.
He often wore a blinged-out grill that made him distinct.
Haha became known for sharing hundreds of short-form comedy bits online.
In addition to his gigantic TikTok audience, Huey amassed nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Additionally, he had more than 200,000 Instagram followers.
For a social media entertainer primarily using a relatively new platform, that is impressive. He was going places.
Haha’s friend, Coby Jdn, who organized the aforementioned GoFundMe page, wrote on Instagram this week:
Used to saying RIP but this hurt the most.
We always hated comedy cuz all people see is laughs, not what we hadda do or go through.
They already took the fun out the comedy but now it’s not gon be the same without you.
We love you brother, see you in the future.
That is a moving and heartfelt tribute.
In the days leading up to his death, Huey posted photos of himself with a gun and with marijuana.
We hate to speculate, but he also appeared to be struggling with mental health issues.
In one grim example, he tweeted, “f–k life” before deactivating his account.
Last month, Huey also posted a short format gag video called ‘When you bipolar.”
While he was known for this kind of parody, he seemed to mock those living with the condition.
In another video, uploaded a few weeks before his death, the comedian posted a video showing him wielding a gun during a pretend robbery.
Yet another post featured the rising star posing for a photoshoot with his daughter, which he captioned:
“Wish I could be better for you.”
That is heartbreaking.
Huey is survived by a toddler daughter, Princess Ha.
We send our condolences to his friends, family members and loved ones.
May Haha rest in peace.
