Gaining popularity online is quite a task as you need to be unique in your approach and your ideas need to be fresh to keep the audience hooked to your videos.
Sometimes the path you choose to gain popularity can harm your life or career.
Here is a case of a man who lost his life within 3 months of taking up challenges online. Check out the details of this unfortunate incident.
The man from northeast China wanted to become an online celebrity. To gain popularity, he tried a unique gimmick of consuming anything that his audience requested him to drink during his live streams.
The man known only by his last name Chu, was just 29 years old, and he died after he filmed himself drinking alcohol and other things every day for three months continuously.
Chu’s friends said that he would drink beer, spirits, and anything that his audience requested him to. His friends claim that he once drank cooking oil for his fans in the hope of getting cash rewards from them.
According to sources, it is revealed that Chu had once told his audience that he could not complete the challenge as he was even twitching in pain, but the audience seemed to encourage him to pull off the challenge.
With his death, it is reported that all the videos have been taken off from the site.
