7 YouTube Stars Who Tragically Passed Away When They Were Teenagers
The YouTube community was shocked when the Bratayley family announced that their 13-year-old son Caleb Logan Bratayley has suddenly died at the beginning of October 2015. But while Caleb’s passing was definitely the most recent and widely covered story of a YouTuber who sadly passed away, it was unfortunately not the first case. Death is never an easy thing to deal with, but when a young person dies it becomes so much more difficult.
Because YT stars share their lives with the world, when one of them dies an untimely death it ultimately affects thousands of people who would normally be strangers. Although you didn’t known them personally, these teenager YouTubers’ deaths were beyond heartbreaking. Rest in peace to all the beautiful people below.
Talia Joy Castellano
Talia Joy Castellano first became known on YouTube for her huge eyes, amazing makeup skills and bright personality. She later appeared on The Ellen Show, was made a Covergirl ambassador, and became a worldwide sensation. But while the teen was remarkably positive, she had been dealing with devastation for years. Talia was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, at just 7 years old. She bravely fought three three different relapses, but unfortunately succumbed to the illness on July 16, 2013, just shy of her 14th birthday.
