She lifts up a gun and what appears to be a noose. “One is a lot less messy. I would go with the noose in my personal opinion.”

Shane then takes the noose and the scene cuts to the psychic twins. “Did he just kill himself? Yeah. Didn’t take a second to see that one coming. Ha! Hahaha.”

A ton of commenters attacked the video. “Making light of suicide is NOT FUNNY,” a fan wrote. “Coming from someone who has attempted suicide, it is really NOT funny. Sorry, I just unsubscribed. This makes me feel so bad. You took it too far. It’s offensive and f****** awful to people with f****** depression.”

After tons of people reported his video, it was flagged and age-restricted.

On Breland’s channel, her video was themed around murder, and had even more haters on it.

“Your content is f****** awful and s***,” a top comment wrote. “This is the most pathetic thing I have ever seen. I’m unsubbing! Little girls watch this channel.”
