Technoblade, a popular American YouTuber, Gamer and social media personality who is well known for his comedy and Minecraft video content on his YouTube channel has passed away.
Technoblade,23, died following an extended battle with stage four cancer, his family announced today in a public statement and video.
Techno previously revealed he had been diagnosed with cancer last August and had been sporadically updating his community on his situation while continuing to receive treatment and create content on YouTube.
In the video, posted on June 30, Techno’s father narrated a final, posthumous message titled “so long nerds,” written for such an occasion. It was filled to the brim with the creator’s signature dry and often dark humor, but also acts as one final ‘thank you’ to everyone who supported the Minecraft star over the years.
“Thank you all for supporting my content over the years. If I had another 100 lives, I think I would choose to be Technoblade again every single time. As those were the happiest years of my life,” Techno said.
“I hope you guys enjoyed my content and that I made some of you laugh. I hope you all go on to live long, prosperous, and happy lives because I love you guys. Technoblade out.”
In the video, Technoblade revealed that his real name was Alexander as he kept his identity a secret to his fans.
Following Techno’s final message, his father details how he originally planned to write and record the video himself prior to his passing, but his deteriorating health and other factors kept it from happening.
According to his father, he wrote the message from bed and passed away around eight hours later.
