Etika’s Mental Problem.
Etika has been having a mental problem for some time now. Recently on June 19, he uploaded a video which many people termed as a suicide note. The video prompted much concern form his fans, friends and loved ones. The video has since then been taken down.
However, this was not the first time that the YouTuber expressed suicidal thoughts. In April this year, Etika also suggested that he was going to take his own life.
This forced the police to break down his door in order to check on his mental stability. In his suicidal note, the internet personality wrote that he was going to shoot himself in the forehead. He claimed he was to do so with a gun bought from Long Island, New York.
Luckily for his fans, friends and loved ones, he never carried out his threat. These suicidal threats have been a major issue of concern, especially about his mental health.
However, his recent disappearance has been a serious cause of alarm to everyone who knew him. Many fear that his mental illness might have gotten worse.
