Below at around the 39:00 minute mark, Chestnut reveals how performing in gay porn affected his social life and taught him about financially responsibility.
Drug OD or suicide?
“May God Blessed Him. Ameen”
AMEN!!!!! SO YOUNG
Maybe an assassination? Probably not. Better to go with the drug OD or suicide.
Regardless of the cause of death at twenty-four he left us at a very young age. The same year this kid was born 1990 was the same year I learned that I was not going to have the same career that I started with (the phone company if I lived long enough to retire. He did what he had to do to survive and having made it to a reality show with a gay porn background to me says he accomplished a lot.
All us Gays, as a matter of course automatically follow the careers of all Gay porn performers with close attention. But seriously, who was this guy?
24 is too young to die. Plus I thought we’d seen the end of those days by the time the AIDS c0cktail drugs appeared in the early 1990s.
RIP to this young man.
@jwtraveler: How rude of you to desire my death.
Don’t do drugs….
Died of a seizure due to poppers. I was always really scare to do poppers. For this very reason. Poor guy. He was great as an porn model.
poppers are so trashy
To young to die, he just begun to live his life, so sad.
@stranded: They still don’t know the cause of death, the article says he was holding bottle of poppers, Chestnutz according to family members was already suffering from seizures, so it might be completely unrelated.
If you take a look at his Facebook page he was a good guy, it is truly sad that horrible humans beings like Huckabee do so well, and a good guy has to die.
Life can be so cruel.
@Realitycheck: So true about the unfairness of life. Huckabee just said the Dred Scott decision was in effect, and thus is claiming chattel slavery of African Americans is legal. (WTF???) He supports ped0philic anti-gay hucksters like Josh Duggar. He claims Beyonce is a worse influence on American culture than hypocrite Sarah Palin. He actively works to overthrow same-sex marriage and LGBTIQ equality. On and on.
Meanwhile, this young gay man, who seems like a gentle soul, is gone. Very sad.
The linked YouTube reality show “Tha Life,” set in Atlanta, is pretty good, and worth checking out.
@stranded: You’re scared of poppers? They possibly induced a grand mal seizure. If you don’t already suffer from them you have nothing to worry about. The worst you would expect is a slight headache.
Truly sad our young generation leaving us way to soon. Not sure what is going on or life has become to hard for for them.
Seemed like a real genius who was on his way to a Nobel Prize.
@stadacona: Yes, and you’re real winner yourself.
Help me out here. In the end of the video it gives the date of his death as 9-24-15, right? which means he still has some time. Somebody call him and tell him to live it up, he’s got 12 more days.
@stranded: Yikes! That’s scary I never used amyl/poppers because I heard they were like sniffing glue or nail polish and they scared me.
