Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has passed away at the age of 23, according to a heartfelt farewell video made on his behalf by his family.
His father referred to him in the “so long nerds” video shared with his 10 million followers as “the most amazing kid anyone could possibly ask for.” The American internet star became well-known by live streaming and uploading videos of himself playing the sandbox game and informed his followers of his cancer diagnosis last year.
His father read the final letter, which was penned just hours before he passed away: “Hello everyone, Technoblade here. If you’re watching this. I am dead. Thank you all for supporting my content over the years. If I had another hundred lives, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every single time as those were the happiest years of my life.”
The online celebrity revealed in a fundraising video released in February that he had undergone chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a limb salvage operation after developing a painful tumour in his right arm.
