Beauty blogger Ethan Is Supreme, a makeup artist and influencer who had more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, has died at age 17.
His father, Gerald Peters, found his body and said he believes his son died of a drug overdose, but no official determination had been announced. Friends also noted that he had struggled with addiction recently.
“He wanted nothing but to inspire, make people laugh and push the boundaries of what is acceptable in our world for all young people,” Gerald Peters told Fox News. “He was a kind soul who accepted everyone for who they were.”
The blogger, whose real name is Ethan Peters, had gained more than half a million followers on Instagram by modeling edgy looks he created.
If anyone talks negatively about my friend and his actions over the past year he was battling addiction. If anyone has anything negative to say about addiction I will come for you with a vengeance. Speak positively of Ethan. He was an artist & inspiration. So talented.
