What happened to the TikTok star Waffler69 aka Taylor?
Taylor LeJeune, a well-known TikTok food critic whose real name was wafffler69, passed away suddenly at the age of 33.
Clayton Claydorm, Taylor’s brother, said in a TikTok video,
“My brother Taylor … he has passed away around 10 p.m. on January 11th, 2023, from a presumed heart attack,”
“He was rushed to the hospital, and I want to say, like, an hour and a half later he passed away. This is still pretty new. I don’t know what’s going to be happening in the near future … but I thought I should get on TikTok and let everybody know.”
Taylor’s brother who goes by the name @Claydorm on Twitter confirmed the news to TMZ.
Clayton told TMZ that Taylor (Waffler69) had contacted his mother after feeling unwell, but as things worsened, he requested an ambulance to take him from his Louisiana home to a hospital. At the hospital, Taylor passed away.
Claydorm shared a link to a GoFundMe page on his TikTok bio to raise money for his mother, who he claimed “had to pay for my brother’s cremation, as well as the medical expenses.”
A popular social media user named Waffler69 created everyday video content. He had 1.7 million TikTok subscribers, and the majority of his videos featured food.
He published videos in which he tried out various foods and gave his opinions in order to recommend certain foods to viewers.
At the same time, Waffler69 loved experimenting with new things and was constantly receptive to suggestions from his fans.
Waffler69 succeeded by eating peculiar things, like a packaged cheeseburger. He was seen eating spoiled food in several of his more well-known films, including out-of-date canned goods and cereal that was manufactured under license and first distributed in 1989 to promote Tim Burton’s Batman movie. He cooked meals with ingredients from Dollar Tree in past films. Viewers also enjoyed the unanticipated vintage VHS tapes and DVDs that would appear in his programs.
Due to his success, he eventually started selling goods in Cameo and even created his own Waffler Seasoning. The taste tests conducted by Waffler69 included, among other things, boxes of out-of-date and unusual promotional cereal, a huge Fruit Loop that was in high demand, and even corn dogs flavoured with Asian flavours. He compared comparable menu items from several fast food places in some of his more well-liked films.
From fried grasshoppers to tinned beef tripe, Taylor gladly tried everything. In addition to extra fans on Instagram and YouTube, he gained 1.7 million TikTok followers as a result. Since 1996, he had been producing videos.
He dipped a giant-sized Froot Loop into a bowl of milk in the final culinary prank he posted before passing away.
