YouTube Star And Teen Mom Critic Stevie Ryan Dead At 33


Stevie Ryan, a YouTube star whose viral videos led to her own comedy show on the VH1 cable TV channel, died by suicide Saturday, July 1, 2017, according to multiple news sources.

In the most recent podcast, released June 28, Ryan discussed dealing with her grandfather's death, depression, and suicide, telling co-host Kristen Carney, "I'm just anxious that this is going to send me into a deeper depression". She recently hosted a podcast about depression.

The podcast aired on June 29 where she admitted that the death of her grandfather would just cause her to become more depressed. "Just found out Stevie Ryan hung herself yesterday she was literally a YouTube innovator and a true entertainer", wrote Lush.

Noted the last tweet Ryan would ever make, 'The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams. I love you my Pa, " she wrote.

Although her family has yet to make a statement, her final tweet, a tribute to her late grandfather, may shine insight into Ryan's personal troubles.

In 2014, Jenelle Evans faced the wrath of the comedienne after complaining that her mother wouldn't allow her to see her son, seven-year-old Jace.

As she continued creating "Little Loca" videos, Ryan expanded her content to include a sexually adventurous teenager, Katrina, and celebrity impressions such as Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber. She also infamously feuded with several Teen Mom cast members on Twitter.

"I'm just anxious that this is going to send me into a deeper depression", she said on the podcast. "I love you my Pa".

The actress' online popularity led to Ryan getting her own show on VH1. It was later canceled after just two seasons. I know you've been struggling and you were trying to get help.
