The YouTube community is mourning the loss of one of its own.
Minecraft YouTuber, known to fans online as Technobladedied after battling cancer, his family confirmed on June 30. He was 23 years old.
In a YouTube video titled “So long nerds,” Technoblade’s dad read a letter the content creator wrote to fans before he died. “Hello everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this, I’m dead,” the message began. “So let’s sit down and talk one last time.” Then, after going through Technoblade for years, he revealed his real name: alexander.
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years,” he continued. “If I had a hundred more lifetimes, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every time because these are the happiest years of my life.”
“I hope you enjoyed my content and that I made some of you laugh,” he added. “And I hope you all go on to live long, prosperous, happy lives, because I love you guys. Technoblade out.”
