Is YouTuber CoryxKenshin Dead?

Per a report from The Sun, there were rumors swirling over the weekend that YouTuber, CoryxKenshin, was dead. Scrolling through Twitter, however, it is unclear where rumors the influencer had passed away originated from. In fact, CoryxKenshin and dead may have been trending simply because there were a lot of tweets with his name and the word “dead” posted on Twitter recently. For example, there is one individual who tags the YouTuber daily to request that he “finish the dead rising series.” 

Interestingly enough, it doesn’t really appear that there were any reports that CoryxKenshin was dead until The Sun reported that it was trending. In a tweet that was seemingly in response to The Sun’s article (or perhaps the tweet that inspired it), there has been one individual that tagged the YouTuber to ask if they were still alive.

Now, CoryxKenshin is a bit dead on TikTok right now as he hasn’t really been posting any content. He, however, continues to upload content to YouTube which has always been his primary platform. So, there is truly no reason for anyone to think anyone happened to him?

Who Is This Guy, Anyway?

Born on November 9th, 1992, this social media influencer’s real name is Cory DeVante Williams. He first started his journey on the YouTube platform back in 2009. To date, he has accumulated over 15M followers. Most of his following accumulated thanks to his entertaining playing of horror video games. Back in 2021, he was actually one of the top creators for subscriber growth within the United States.

Over the years, it hasn’t been uncommon for CoryxKenshin to take breaks from creating content on YouTube. Most of the time, his breaks were random and happened without reason. One of his longest breaks lasted for two years from 2011 to 2013.

So, this isn’t necessarily an influencer fans would think something happened to if he disappeared for a little while because it was something he did from time to time.

Fortunately, there doesn’t seem to be anything credible being reported to suggest anything is wrong with CoryxKenshin. So, there is certainly no reason to think he is dead. According to his YouTube profile, it has been about two weeks since he uploaded a video to his channel.
