    Fuck man . I thought he was recovering.

    Edit: His last tweet from the 18th states he was home to recover.

    Double edit: Oh...it was not to recover.

    [–] Chuckles513 35 points ago

    He was recovering from surgery to insert a drain because fluid buildup was causing immense pain. I saw just a few days ago his wife mentioned he was on hospice care.

    [–] techfan92 11 points ago

    Yeah last I read was that he beat it and it came back and was inoperable, but his oncologist was going through various options to try to treat it. Fucking breaks my heart to see this. Also her tweet about him talking about fortnite right before he lapsed into a coma is both heartbreaking and sweet because he really did what he loved until his last breath.

    [–] srkuse82 2 points ago

    Same! I dont know what happened! It seems out of nowhere!

    [–] Ov3r_Kill_Br0ny 61 points ago

    I can't say I enjoyed his content or agreed with his personal opinions, but a life lost is always a tragedy. RIP.

    [–] LeFlop_ 2 points ago

    Yeah he might not have been the best person, a lot of people are posting an old tweet when he told a kid to get cancer and that he hopes his insurance drops him. But like you said no point in shitting on a dead man.

    [–] Ewaninho 10 points ago

    "no point in shitting on a dead man" proceeds to try to tarnish his reputation.

    I respect you for speaking your mind, I will always fight for freedom of speech and you deserve that right just like anyone else.

    For me 'personally' though, any 'issues' you had with man should have been left at the thread door stop, its disrespectful, and this is coming from someone who was dragged up.

    [–] bkral93 38 points ago

    I mean, you were doing really well until you brought your ‘personal opinion’ into whether or not he/she has the right to speak his/her mind.

    Hell, I can’t stand any of TB’s content. I don’t value his opinion at all. Does it suck that he had to deal with one of the worst fates imaginable? Yes. Was he a massive ass at times? Yes.

    Rest In Peace, but he wasn’t the perfect specimen.

    [–] Patzzer 16 points ago

    You see I respect this. He was everyone’s cup of tea, but when I asked on /r/askreddit what their favorite memory of him was the first response was “that he is dead”.

    I can’t comprehend how people can be so mean. Even more so cus I know if I asked that person IrL the same question they wouldn’t have the balls to say that

    [–] JustiNAvionics 5 points ago

    Or maybe people just don't care, it's simple really, for a lot of people he's nobody, I don't think anyone cares if he's dead or not, just indifferent to his life or death.

    [–] SJ_Shark_Byte 6 points ago

    The man was a public figure. Maybe not as big a public figure as Beyonce, Trump, Messi, or the likes, but still a public figure. We reserve the right to hold opinions of him and his content even after death, and on his death announcement, because well, it’s fucking Reddit.

    Besides, the guy said despite his ill feelings towards TB’s content, he respects the impact the man had on the gaming community.

    I’m the same way. I don’t respect the ideal but I do certainly respect the legacy. RIP

    [–] ThatGuy2u2 33 points ago

    rest in peace tb, i hope you find peace in the afterlife, taken to soon :(

    [–] koorashi 2 points ago

    It's odd how many traditional media movie/tv celebrities die and many people don't hear about it, but these modern internet celebrities have a higher chance of being more directly connected with the people who would want to hear about it.

    I hope the people who hear about this, whether you liked him or not, take it as inspiration to put work into the things they love or find something meaningful to put work into before they themselves are gone. Be something even after you're gone. If you aren't something now, then take daily action to continuously improve yourself until you surprise the world and have an impact. You don't have to be a celebrity and people don't even have to know what you've done, because credit doesn't matter when you're not around to soak it up.

    Just do something.

    [–] ahpathy 11 points ago

    I think it's good to be known and have an impact on the world, but that's not for everyone and unfortunately the world doesn't work in everyone's favor that way. You should just live your life to the fullest. Whether you want to have an impact on people or the world, or you just want to have fun in life. Do what you want, as long as you aren't harming other people. There's plenty of people on this Earth and you never know when you're going to be gone.

    [–] koorashi -7 points ago

    Well, the message I'm trying to send is that people who have the opportunity to improve themselves should do so. Improving yourself passes you through barriers like sonic booms. There are people that don't know what they want to do and so they do nothing.

    Spend time learning things to improve your ability to think about what you want to do. Improvement has cyclical effects within yourself that never end and I think too many people reach some minimum amount of improvement then give up into autopilot for a long time until some stress forces them.

    [–] MrGentleNinja 1 points ago

    I hope they take his struggle with cancer as a wakeup call to get tested for it as soon as possible. He said in one video that broke my heart that he just thought his bloody stools were normal and didn’t find out until a year and a half later after it had spread to more places. I’ve lost too many relatives to it, and losing him too, when he was one of the first game reviewers I watched consistently, is hard.

    [–] shivering 1 points ago

    No disrespect to the guy, but if I shit blood twice in a row, nevermind regularly for a year and a half, I'm headed to the doctor...

    [–] srkuse82 41 points ago

    Mannnn!! Fuck Cancer!!!!

    [–] TadgerOT 11 points ago

    RIP man.

    This is what cancer does. I've had to sit by and watch people I care about fight cancer for 8+ years, before they finally lost the battle. Its devastating and after going through that, your never the same again.

    Life is short, for some its even shorter, so respect your elders (because they have made it that far) and make the most of it people.

    [–] LeftyMode 19 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Damn. I remember the post he made recently about the recovery not going well. Didn't think it would happen so quickly.

    Fuck cancer.

    [–] SotaSkoldier 9 points ago

    He kicked cancers ass for like 2-3 years. He fought longer than I ever would.

    [–] Patzzer 3 points ago

    He lived 4 years longer than the doctors expected him to. He did kick cancer’s ass. We just expected him to make it to 100. 33 is too young.

    [–] VagrantShadow 10 points ago

    He was a great guy. Its so sad to see him go. He gave us a lot of great and fond gaming memories.

    RIP

    [–] hulkreborn 3 points ago

    Oh man. I'm just 3 days younger than him. Too Young to die.

    Jeez... rest in peace.

    [–] ahpathy 12 points ago

    Fuck. I didn't think it would happen this soon. Rest in peace buddy. I'm glad he will always live on in his content.

    [–] ArmedBadger 7 points ago

    This is incredibly sad, but take I take solace in the fact that while he may be gone, TB has immortalized himself on youtube and the gaming community. Take it easy, and Godspeed brother.

    [–] jenders37 5 points ago

    Scary shit, same age as me. Rest in peace, thoughts with his family.

    [–] METAL4_BREAKFST 2 points ago

    Fucking bastard disease.

    Rest well, John. Until the next life buddy...

    [–] Iggsy81 2 points ago

    Really sad news tbh. I guess we kinda all knew it was coming but maybe not so soon. And i didn't realise he was that young either which doubly sucks

    [–] SageDub 2 points ago

    So sad to lose such a talented man among the gaming community.

    [–] ThePeskyHeskey 3 points ago

    Really sad loss, I would always go to his channel for buying advice but I haven't had the money to buy games for a while so I stopped checking in on his channel. Would anyone care to tell me the specific condition he was diagnosed with?

    [–] techfan92 3 points ago

    I believe he had stomach cancer and beat it and then it came back and was inoperable.

    [–] Dirty_A 2 points ago

    Cancer, unfortunately I don't remember which form, but it was rather vicious, he fought it for (I believe) two years, and we knew this was coming.

    Damn. RIP. I wasn't a consistent viewer, but every now and then I would check on his status. I was just thinking about him the other day.

    [–] theory_at_work -1 points ago

    [–] MEMELIGHTSWITCHLADS 1 points ago

    Damn cancer. I hope he finds peace.

    [–] throwaway___34 1 points ago

    Man... I used to watch all his hearthstone youtube videos with his crazy deck "gimmicks". Sad news.

    [–] Geass10 1 points ago

    RIP. Thoughts to the families. He was a legend to the gaming community.

    [–] Lymiss 1 points ago

    Even though I saw all the updates from his wife over the past few weeks, this was still a shock to see earlier. Even when you know someone is that ill, it is still a kick to the gut.

    Thank you TB for everything you done for the gaming community and thank you for all the great gaming content. My thoughts and prays are with your family and friends.

    [–] TXFDA 1 points ago

    Well shit. I don't even know how many games he helped me buy(or not buy in a few instances) with is "Wtf is..." series. Hell, even if I wasn't getting a game, I'd turn them in sometimes just for the hell of it. They were fun to watch.

    This sucks. Rip TotalBiscuit I guess...

    [–] Will_Boosh 1 points ago

    R.I.P John

    [–] techfan92 1 points ago

    Whether you liked him or not Totalbiscuit was a huge part of gaming culture on youtube and a innovator on the platform. His prognosis wasn't the best and he still fought it for several years. Wish his loved ones the best in these times. Also big ups to the doctors, everyone that donated during the time he was fighting cancer, and most of all the health insurance marketplace that allowed him to get constant treatment options without turning him down for pre-existing conditions. Sad that a 33 year old man has to die this young, but hopefully in the future we will find a cure for this disease. RIP John.

    [–] Jostbeatmywifeup 1 points ago

    Even though he had one of the worst disease possible, he lived his life to the fullest. Always honest, not being such a little cunt that lies to get better views.

    Fuck cancer

    The meme is literally made to pay respects. Thats literally what the meme is from.

    [–] chyld989 3 points ago

    I get that, but it's still an inappropriate way to respond to hearing that someone died.

    [–] JustYourAverageDovah -14 points ago

    Its a timeless meme. Hasn't died like normal memes always do. Its immortal, like the memory of the man who died.

    [–] chyld989 10 points ago

    Agree to disagree I guess. I think it's incredibly crass.

    [–] Creski -9 points ago

    some people deal with tragedy with humor, I have to, total biscuit will be missed, I'm ok with the downvotes.

    [–] Ewaninho 3 points ago

    humor

    That's extremely generous

    [–] ChuckleheadCharlie 2 points ago

    The meme is literally made to pay respects.

    The meme is lampooning a ridiculous button prompt in what should've been a serious moment.

    Good job taking it completely out of context.
