TikToker with 1.8 million followers dies aged 33 after a suspected heart attack

He posted his final video hours before his death


TikTok star Waffler69 is reportedly dead aged 33 following a suspected heart attack.

Waffler69, real name Taylor LeJeune, died on Wednesday earlier this week. His brother posted a TikTok video saying Taylor had passed away around 10pm on January 11th 2023, “from a presumed heart attack.”

Taylor reportedly began experiencing discomfort and called his mother before ringing for an ambulance to take him to hospital where he later died. Taylor’s father and grandfather both “suffered from genetic heart problems.” Taylor posted his last video on the day he died, trying the big viral fruit loop.

Taylor had 1.7 million followers on the app and often posted videos of himself eating bizarre foods. He would sometimes eat expired food like canned ham from 1960, reindeer meat and baby food.

His brother Clayton has launched a GoFundMe to raise money for Taylor’s funeral costs. He wrote: “If he touched your heart in some way, me and my family would appreciate it.” The appeal has raised $12,000 of its smaller original $1,500 goal. Taylor, who had been making content for 16 years, posted his last TikTok just hours before his death. In an update, Taylor’s brother wrote: “This has been insane to see how many people truly loved my brother besides my small circle of family. Please keep his legacy alive. Watch his content that he does have out. Keep him alive. He loved making people happy.”
