Popular beauty influencer Ethan Peters, better known by the nickname Ethan Is Supreme, has died at the age of 18. The young influencer reportedly overdosed last weekend, and then his close friend Ava Louise revealed some not-so-nice details from his private life.
– My best friend in the whole world, my twin. The only person who was there for me when I didn’t have anyone. I love you, Ethan, and I’m speechless. I wish I knew how bad it was. My heart was broken, resting in peace. Addiction is a disease. For the last few weeks I had to talk about it with Ethan and all the people close to him were afraid for him. I wish I had tried harder, shouted at him more. Ethan was highly loved and respected in the beauty industry. About a year ago, he turned to drugs, due to the pressure created by his popularity on social media. He is a good person and he did not deserve to die – Ava wrote next to their joint photo.
– Ethan was an addict, and addictions should not be ashamed. I speak openly about the cause of his death to save the next child from that punishment. He was so bright and smart, he needed to live. He was more than his demons, as are all of you. Please seek help – concluded Ava, who is also an influencer.
Her late friend and colleague also struggled with bullying from peers, which he talked about in his last post just two days before his death. He then thanked the abusers for being where he is today.
More than half a million people followed him on Instagram.
