The Assassination of Freddy E. by the Coward Honey Cocaine (or so says the Internet)

I was on Facebook tonight (trolling through my feed in the wee hours of the evening, as one does) when I saw someone had re-posted the following status:

Today, our son, Frederick Eugene Buhl (@freddy_E), age 22 years old, took his own life with a rifle shot to the head. Our family is saddened beyond words; our loss is great; this tragedy is enormous and unforseen. Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his. We love him a great deal, and he will be sorely missed.

 

The original status was posted by the father of Freddy E., the young man who killed himself.

I went to the @freddy_E Twitter page, mostly because I was wondering why a father would identify his son in a death notice by his Twitter handle.

The first thing I noticed were the heart-wrenching tweets Freddy E. had made leading up to his suicide. In essence, he came as close as possible to live-tweeting his own death.

The second thing I noticed was that Freddy E. had an enormous number of followers and was apparently a well-known YouTube comedian and rapper (which explains why his father identified him by his Twitter handle). His videos regularly got over 100,000 views and he was extremely popular in the Seattle area.

Other than the Facebook notice from his father, the only information about Freddy E.’s death comes from a blog post made Saturday night by someone who knew him. In the post, this friend of Freddy’s says that he also looked to Freddy’s Twitter for answers, and found:

“…you said something about being alone and all that shit so I went on your lil crushes twitter, Honey Cocaine. And she talking about being single and how she didn’t tell anybody to fall in love with her. And looking at the tweets and the post you said on facebook a few weeks back about you in love with her and you’ll take a bullet for her, I am praying you didn’t do this over a bitch.”

And then, all hell broke loose on social media. Someone is trending on Twitter right now and it’s not Freddy E., it’s Honey Cocaine, a Cambodian rapper and Freddy E.’s girlfriend? Ex-girlfriend? Never really girlfriend?

The Internet has decided that Honey Cocaine killed Freddy E. No one disputes that he did, in fact, die from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. But though Freddy E. pulled the trigger, it was surely Honey Cocaine who killed him.

There are thousands of tweets and Facebook posts just like this from the past few hours.

Even more bizarre, over and over again people are insisting that Honey Cocaine caused Freddy E. to kill himself as a sacrifice to the Illuminati (the 18th century Bavarian secret society of powerful people that has snuck its way back into modern conspiracy theory). The Illuminati, if they accept Honey Cocaine’s sacrifice, will make her a true star.

As for Honey Cocaine herself, at first she tweeted several things about “being single,” probably trying to distance herself from the inevitable ensuing shitstorm. When the attacks started coming, she started backpeddling, posting the following:

Besides this being NONE OF OUR DAMN BUSINESS, it can become our business in a weird future-dystopia way. Because even someone who doesn’t know anything about either of these people, their relationship, or their lives, can flit around various social media outlets gathering the information they made public over the past two weeks. I should know, I spent the last hour doing just that.

On his Facebook a week ago, Freddy wrote about how Honey Cocaine was his “future wife.”

Screen shot 2013-01-06 at 2.35.56 AM

The fact remains, whether or not Honey Cocaine was the most insane heartless harpy she-witch in all the land, she did not kill Freddy E. She is not responsible for his death. Because it simply doesn’t work like that.

What is it that she did this week? What’s the worst thing we can come up with? Maybe she cheated on him! Maybe she told him she didn’t love him! Maybe she ignored him on Twitter! Maybe she plotted with the Illuminati to make him feel bad about himself!

The bottom line is that it does not matter what she did. Acting like not the best girlfriend does not a murderer make.

As a mortician I’ve seen the “I’ll show you, you’ll see!” suicide at work. Unfortunately, I’ve seen it in my own private life as well. Each time it is horrible and senseless and leaves you looking for a scapegoat, someone to goddamn blame.

But Freddy’s girlfriend cannot be blamed under any circumstances. It sets a shameful precedent. Especially since I’m not sure that it would be the same situation if Honey Cocaine had killed herself and Freddy E. were still alive.

The history of the depiction of female hysteria shows us that surely Honey Cocaine would have been called “unstable” and “overly emotional” and “clingy” and “crazed.” Freddy would not have been getting hundreds of tweets a minute about how he had literally and directly caused her death. That he was responsible. And that he was going to be killed for what he had done.

The pitchforks of the townspeople are out. The mob is forming. But it is online. And the world is becoming a strange place, indeed.

  • Kidddd123

    Lmao ! Orrrrr the Reason could be is he was talking to a chick on twitter caught hella feelings for her planned on marrying the chick and found out that the girl he was talking to was acutally a fake ( @D0peestSwede). . And The REAL girl turned out to be ( @ESSENCETATIANA )

    dude we cant blame this chick for a young man committing suicide. There is the possibility that there were other factors involved with HIS decision to take his own life. During our life time, Im sure we will hurt the ones we love, but the majority of us dont commit suicide. I think its a little odd that people are focusing on this one person who seems to have been good friends with him. Even if she broke things off, that doesn’t mean she is responsible for his actions. It is sad that a troubled but talented young man ended his life, but we all have choices.

    that is a damn shame

  • Gtfoh

    Man, get the WHOLE, ENTIRE & COMPLETE fuck outta here. Y’all MFers and this illuminati bullshit are just completely unbearable. People commit suicide everyday. So because someone who is popular on twitter/local “celeb” kills themselves…the illuminati is involved??? LMAO! Get the fuck outta here! So what, did they cast a voodoo spell on him to make him insane so that he’d kill himself? C’mon people. He made his own choice. No one forced him to do what he did. He took his own life as many people do across the globe daily. All this nonsense about the illuminati…people need to dead that shit. You all sound as stupid as the people who just KNEW for a fact that the world was going to end on 12.21.12. All the energy & time you loonies spend into making blogs, videos…etc could be used to do something positive. Go volunteer at a homeless shelter, go help disadvantaged kids…something that actually will make a difference. Smh…

    Interesting… Men have been saying for years “I don’t love these hoes”. And dissing women left & right who fall in love with them. We don’t know how many countless women have committed suicide or self-destructed over the years because of words thrown by some cold hearted dude who’s words & actions are glorified. Yet, the moment a woman does the same, she’s crucified. God rest Freddy E.’s soul, but you can’t use this girl as a scapegoat, as society loves to do. For someone to commit suicide, they have to have more going on psychologically than just rejection from a love. We have to find better ways of searching for truth. Rest in Peace Freddy. My heart goes out to you & yours.

      Nicely said.

  • rio

    Lol, personally, in my opinoin, I feel there is no reason for sucide, and commiting sucide over a girl, makes the whole thing stupid, weather he did it cos of heartbreak or rejection. It really not honeycocain fault, n no matter what happend , real niggies don’t commit sucide, u live n face the problem. Word. Rip freedy.

    The illuminati is NOT real! Every time someone famous is brought up someone has to associate it with the illuminati. It’s a fucking gimmick that various artists are using to boost sales in their music! It really pisses me the fuck off when people swear it’s real when it isn’t! I wish everybody would shut the fuck up about it! Honestly if you believe in the illuminati the Easter bunny is real also. Freddy E. was in love with Honey Cocaine their relationship went downhill and he also had other personal things going on. Nobody knows what the fuck the illumanti is. Let this man rest in peace and stop making false allegations you sound fucking ignorant. Honey Cocaine is not responsible for his death so stop blaming her. He took it upon himself to take his life. It’s all said and done now, nothing can be done about it. It was his choice and his conscience.

    • janelle

      actually the illuminati is REALLL….. BUT i dont think it has anything to do with his death….i just think that he was going through somethings and couldnt bare it anymore .BUT i do agree with the fact that honey didnt kill em

  • http://www.facebook.com/nysia.christine Nysia Christine

    So you take a bullet for some one else ?… Idc what no ones says , that was a demon spirit for him to lead to killing himself, smh I just hope he knew Jesus and really repented and forgave before he died,
    God help his family and friends ……I pray!

    • DNICE

      You’re the first person I’ve seen point that out. The fact that he was even talking like that, claiming that.

  • DolphinFly

    SHE IS A MURDERER FLAT OUT SHE MAY AS WELL PULLED THE TRIGGER HERSELF SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS DOING PLAYING GAMES WITH HIS HEAD.

    • Shane Wielding

      He ALWAYS had a choice. He CHOSE to kill himself. People don’t need to kill themselves because someone breaks up with them. If that was true, most of us would all be dead! We have all had a bad breakup, but we just deal with it and move on. She was uncaring, but not a murderer.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003345190458 Justine Tarrance

    TOTALLY agree. 156%.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003345190458 Justine Tarrance

    People are fucking stupid… Honey Cocaine is just as guilty as his Twitter followers for killing him.

    • Shane Wielding

      People don’t need to kill themselves because someone breaks up with them. We have all had a bad breakup, but we just deal with it and move on. She was uncaring, but not a murderer.

  • http://twitter.com/MusicMeansLife_ Miko Loft ♪

    You failed to show that just before she “found out” he was dead, she was calling him an “actor” and saying he was using her name to get famous..she may not have killed him but she sure didn’t act like she cared that he was in pain

    • Shane Wielding

      You’re right, she didn’t act in a very caring way, but as the writer above stated, being a bitch doesn’t a murder make. Freddy obviously had unresolved emotional issues and though this issue with HC may have pushed him over the edge, it was not the ultimate reason for his suicide. People need to realize that untreated depression is dangerous. And like any other illness, it needs to be treated before it gets out of control. If you’re feeling depressed and can’t seem to shake it, please get some help. I lost someone I loved to suicide and it causes horrible, horrible pain for those left behind.

  • Me

    Honey Cocaine is such a horrible rapper I don’t even think an Illumati blood sacrafice would help her career anyway. She just sucks!

  • Carmen

    i believe he slept with another man to be sign to tyga’s group and honey cocain left him because of that! he wanted her near because maybe he thought she would ruin his career with the ladies and i also believe she kept reminding him of the situationsthat were haunting him for ex: the song on youtube (love coca love sosa)!!! {{just be creative}}

  • MF Cutty Flam

    Wow That Was Pathetic

  • grace

    it is all that dirty bitch fault she is the reason he died that way he did not even make it to 23 and she saying that is not her fault but it is it was not even his time to die why did god call him home that way. that bitch does not eve care that he is dead. I bet that she is doing some other guy not even thinking about Freddy. she is just so dirty. when u watch his videos all I can do is cry. I sometime think what she died the way that he did I wonder what people would do. but I wish that Freddy would come back to us to make more videos and make people laugh and smile and just be alive. if he would come back us just knowing that he is alive would make so man people happy. when he died the whole word lost a huge chunk of it. he may be just one person but his death cause the whole word to cry. Freddy if you had know how many people had live you maybe you would not have died . you being alone can be healed by the love of your family. I love you Freddy E and when I die I can’t wait to see you there waiting for me . your family and all the other people who loved you. You may have been lost but not forgotten.
