The Death of an internet phenom

It seems that laughing in the face of your own ailment is over for Danny, aka Tourette’s Guy.

“August 4, 2007

A couple of days ago we received some terrible news about Danny. Late last week Danny passed away.

About a month ago Danny was involved in a bad car accident. He had been out of the hospital for a couple of days staying with a friend when he suffered some medical complications. He unexpectedly passed away in the night.

We here at are deeply saddened by this news as we love Danny. The reality of Danny’s death hasn’t sunk in yet, even a few days later. It is our burden to share this news with you – the millions of fans who also love Danny.”

Danny became famous when videos of him and his struggles with Tourette’s Syndrome, uncontrollable seizures involving involuntary movements and utterances, surfaced on the web. Of course, you shouldn’t point and laugh at other people’s misfortune, but unlike a lot of the videos of people making asses of themselves posted all over the web, at least thus guy had the guts to see the humor in his own misfortune.. RIP!
