While the most recent TikTok death came about just a couple of weeks before the time of writing, in mid-April 2024, the rise in deaths across TikTok stars is nothing new.

In fact, there have been more than a few notable deaths of TikTok stars and those who have made a name for themselves on the platform.

But by far the most recent occurred just a couple of weeks ago…

Marisa Roth

The death of Marisa Roth was announced in the middle of April 2024. A note posted by her mother to announce her death highlighted the toxicity of her daughter’s public notoriety on TikTok and mentioned some of the hurt that she had faced during her time as a TikTok star.

Marisa’s profile was rife with commentary on celebrity gossip and pop culture news, with more than 175,000 followers tuning into her content. She was often regarded as controversial owing to the questionable nature of her claims and stories, and the fact that many were unverified – despite how she framed them to followers.

Her death was reported as tragic and sudden.

It is recommended that all those who seek to become TikTok stars do so warily and with an eye to the need for good support and excellent privacy when using the app. TikTok’s community guidelines are specifically in place to protect users and must be adhered to in order to keep your corner of the platform as safe as possible.
