FANS of YouTube star T0astyTime are worried for the vlogger’s safety after he posted a series of troubled tweets.
T0asty, whose real name is Brandon Ashur, tweeted that he had “lost everything” and talked about “leaving this world”.
T0astyTime is a hugely popular online gaming star.
The successful vlogger has more than 1.6million subscribers on YouTube, 154,000 followers on Twitch, and 176,000 followers on Instagram.
He achieved online fame by creating videos about hit game Minecraft.
But on February 3, T0astyTime tweeted:”It’s obvious my career is dead. I’ve lost my life, I’ve lost my wife. I’ve lost everything.
“I thought I could recover from the slander that happened to me years ago, but honestly it’s too much.
“My wife was my rock. I have no reason to be here anymore.”
In a follow-up tweet, Kentucky-based Ashur added: “Leaving this world I never asked to be in to begin with, I will leave you all with this.
“‘The world needs dreamers and the worlds needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreams who do.’
“I hope there’s something more after this life. I had a feeling I wouldn’t make it that far.”
The details behind the incidents referenced in Ashur’s tweets remain unclear.
Online encyclopedias suggest Ashur had been involved in several controversies that played out across his video channels.
The star also appears to have taken several breaks from vlogging in recent years.
One user named Emmy who replied to T0astyTime’s tweets wrote: “Hey guys, he is okay as far as I know. I got in contact with another mod who is there for him rn.
“Please keep sending all your love. Sometimes in life we just need to be reminded that we are cared for and loved. #YouAreLovedToasty.”
Other fans of T0astyTime showed their support for the troubled star.
“I bet all youre a great human, as I told, I dont know you, but I bet you make people happy with your videos, just as you do with my best friend,” said one.
“Please buddy, dont leave this world. We need you here. Everyone needs you here.”
Another wrote: “I know i dont know you at all but please dont do anything to yourself It really isnt worth it.
“We all go through rough times, extremely rough times but at some point things will brighten up.
“There are people who care about you and love you. Please call someone, anyone. Stay safe.”
Bashur’s most recent YouTube video was posted on January 13, 2020, and urged users to follow his Twitch channel.
It amassed more than 62,000 views.
The video before that is a YouTube explaining his absence from the site in recent years.
Bashurs says he is “literally in the midst of losing everything” including losing his home.
He went on: “I don’t have any source of income any more.”
But Bashur added: “I really love making people laugh and feel happy.”
There are currently just three videos available to watch on Bashur’s channel.
