Ever since July’s massive TikTok drama, involving Chase Hudson (Lil Huddy) and Nessa Barrett, Hype House member/co-founder, Chase Hudson has continued to face backlash from the public.
Within the past week, however, rumors began to swirl that Hudson was depressed, to the point of wanting to take his own life. Per the rumors, he had allegedly attempted suicide, but was stopped by Hype House member, Avani Gregg.
Fans began to flood Hudson’s social media with positive comments.
“Chase, remember the words that u said to us, ‘you are loved and your life is valued’”, one fan wrote.
More people began to show their love and support for the Hype House co-founder, and one person even expressed their opinion on cancel culture.
“His attempt to take his life is because of all of you who have taken part in cancel culture. After a while, you might start to believe the hate”.
On September 10th, TikTokRoom released a screenshot conversation between Hudson’s mother and a fan. After asking about Hudson’s mental health and well being, Marlena Hudson confirmed that her son was alright, and that someone had simply started a very inappropriate rumor.
A few hours later, Hudson took a pause from his usual TikTok dances, to further address the rumors.
“They’re false. I just wanted to tell you guys that. I know they want me to kill myself, but I’m not going to”.
The social media star also admitted that while he has had thoughts of suicide in the past, he hasn’t had them recently. Hudson ended the video by stating that he loved his fans, and that “suicide is never the answer”.
Early last week, Hudson posted a video about September being Suicide Prevention Month. He attached a suicide hotline number for anyone who may need it, provided statistics, and explained how valuable each and every person’s life is.
