10 Super Popular YouTubers Who Decided to Quit YouTube
Here one day, gone another. Yup, that seems like a pretty accurate explanation for what happened to some of our favorite YouTube stars. Remember when you would spend days watching HI-larious Fred Figglehorn (a.k.a. Lucas Cruikshank) videos on loop? We sure do. So, what the heck happened to good ol’ Fred?!
He falls in line with these other YouTube personalities who have taken leave of absences — both temporary and permanent — from their channels. Whether they left for personal reasons, to pursue their careers or just went completely AWOL on us, let’s all take a minute to remember some of our former favorite YouTube faces:
Fred Figglehorn (a.k.a. Lucas Cruikshank) took the nation by storm. His fast rise to fame even sparked Nickelodeon's Fred: The Movie in 2010. For six years straight, this kid was EVERYWHERE... then he was nowhere at all.
When Nick offered Lucas the lead role on the sitcom Marvin Marvin, he didn't think twice about leaving Fred in the dust. Unfortunately, the show didn't last very long, and that was the last we heard of Fred/Lucas for nearly three years.
In 2014, the broader-shouldered blond announced that he was relaunching his Fred channel, but our beloved friend would be but a mere appearance every so often. Sigh.
