YouTube and VH1 star Stevie Ryan has died



YouTube sensation Stevie Ryan has died, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.

Ryan, who also starred in VH1’s sketch comedy program “Stevie TV,” was reportedly discovered dead at her California residence Saturday.

The viral video personality died by hanging in an apparent suicide, according to the coroner’s report, and passed away at 33 years old.

Many Twitter users on Monday voiced sadness over Ryan’s passing, expressing regret over her death and sharing condolences.

Ryan was vocal about her struggles with depression on social media, and she created and co-hosted a podcast about the issue called “Mentally Ch(ill)” with Kristen Carney.

The California native’s breakthrough came on YouTube with impersonations of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber.

Ryan’s “Stevie TV” lasted for two seasons on VH1, with the comic parodying pop culture with impersonations, fake commercials and more before the show’s cancellation in 2014.

The performer also co-hosted a relationship talk show with reality television personality Brody Jenner before her death.

Ryan was active on social media, and she issued her last tweet Friday, posting an emotional remembrance of her grandfather.

Carney, who sometimes appears on radio host Adam Carolla’s broadcast, on Monday tweeted out praise for Ryan after the latter’s passing.
