Popular and often controversial YouTuber Kevin Samuels has passed away at the age of 57. His mother, Beverly Samuels-Burch, provided the update to NBC Friday by phone. At this time, it is unclear what caused his death.
Thursday, Gossip at the town tea exclusively reported on Kevin’s passing with a screenshot of what appear to be notes from an official phone call. Associates like Marc Lamont Hill spoke about the passing via Twitter at

The Atlanta Police Department released an incident report on Kevin, who was found “unresponsive on the floor of his apartment” by emergency personnel on May 5, 2022.
APD report says officials found Kevin Samuels unconscious
Although the report lists him as Kelvin in one case, APD has confirmed that the identity of the man transported to Piedmont Hospital by the Grady bus was Kevin. This report was first delivered to RRT by Philip Lewis.
A woman identified as Ms. Ortencia Alcantara told officials at the scene that she met Kevin on the night of May 4, “they went to his apartment and spent the night with him.” On the morning of May 5, the woman said that Kevin complained of chest pains. When she tried to help him, he reportedly fell on top of her and then called 911.
The incident report says, “she requested the 911 operator to contact the front desk for a defibrillator to keep Mr. Samuels responsive until Grady arrived because she is a nurse.”
Kevin was often viral off of YouTube, especially for his dating advice, which he described as looking at pictures. When news of his passing broke, people on social media debated his earlier comments. Between Thursday and Friday, his name was a trend on Twitter.
All I can say about Kevin Samuels is that if you spend your time disrespecting people in life, don’t be surprised that people disrespect you in death. No matter how cruel, the legacy you leave behind will be known by the fruit you bore while you were here.
