Beauty blogger and influencer Ethan Peters, known as Ethan Is Supreme, has died at the age of 17.
The New York Daily News reports:
The beauty world is mourning the youth whose given name was Ethan Peters, especially his friends and fellow influencers, such as Instagram model Ava Louise, Tana Mongeau and Manny MUA, among others.“My best friend in the entire world, my twin flame…..the only person there for me when I had no one,” mourned Ava Louise on Twitter Saturday. “I love you Ethan, I am at a loss for words. I wish I knew how bad it was. I know what you’d want me to say to the internet rn but I’m too heartbroken to say it. Rip.”
She also expressed remorse that she hadn’t responded more strongly when he said a few weeks earlier he needed help for what she suspected was a drug addiction. But she had been trying.“Addiction is a disease,” Louise tweeted. “I had to pull Ethan aside in recent weeks and have talks with him about his usage. Everyone close to him was scared. I just wish I f–king tried harder.”
