Eva Evans had over 300,000 followers on TikTok and more than 30,000 on Instagram. She killed herself last weekend at age 29:

The cause of death has been announced for Eva Evans, a TikTok influencer and director of the Prime Video series Club Rat, who died at the weekend aged 29.
TMZ reports Evans appears to have died by suicide.
Law enforcement sources told the outlet a friend found Eva’s body late Saturday night after having seen her alive Friday morning, going on to relate, “We’re told the friend had a key to Eva’s NYC apartment and when they went to check on her … they found her hanging inside.”
Sources told TMZ “there were no unusual injuries … and there was no sign of a struggle.”
A note was left behind, the contents of which have not been made public.

While hanging yourself is bad, it beats lighting yourself on fire, I suppose. Unless and until the contents of Eva’s suicide note are made public, we have no idea what motivated her suicide, but probably a lot of social-media “influencers” are desperately depressed. Engaging in online exhibitionism in a competitive quest for “clout” isn’t the sort of occupation that emotionally stable people are apt to pursue — really, have you seen the kind of kooks that LibsOfTikTok finds? — and you could see how such a career might lead to feelings of hopeless despair. But why hang yourself? Just log off and delete your account. A recent study found 74% of teenagers feel happier without their smartphones. As the song says, “If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?”
