Medical examiners have revealed Huey Haha’s cause of death almost four months after his tragic passing.
The TikTok and YouTube comedian was found dead at his home in Stockton, California, on Oct. 25. He was 22.
On Friday, a report from the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office, obtained by People magazine, confirmed he died by suicide from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Huey — whose real name was Huey Ha — left behind his girlfriend, Heather Saizon, and their 2-year-old daughter, Princess.
The funnyman first gained prominence posting hundreds of short-form comedy bits on TikTok back in 2019. He subsequently amassed an enormous following and racked up more than 4.5 million video views.
In the wake of his passing, a GoFundMe page was set up to raise money for funeral costs and to help financially support Huey’s girlfriend and young daughter.
The fundraiser has pulled in more than $46,000, with fans still taking to the page to leave small donations.
“I just found out about Huey’s passing today,” one admirer wrote in a recent message. “I was wondering why it has been so long since he posted — thought he was on a small break or something. I wish it was just that. Rest easy, Huey. Thank you for being you.”
The GoFundMe was created by Huey’s comedian pal Coby Jdn.
Jdn paid tribute to his close friend in a touching Instagram post penned right after his death.
“Used to saying RIP but this hurt the most💔we always hated comedy cuz all people see is laughs, not what we hadda do or go through,” Jdn posted on Instagram. “They already took the fun out the comedy but now its not gon be the same without you. We love you brother see you in the future.”
