“Alaskan Bush People” star Bear Brown shocks fans with his recent Instagram post which contains an edited photo of himself and a death epitaph. The post has no caption but the photo has an inscription that reads, “R.I.P. 1987+2018 Loved son and devoted brother, he will be missed…”
The said post on his official Instagram account @bearbrownthekingofextreme has already reached more than 300 comments and 300 likes at press time and is still counting. People on the comment section are in shocked, most of them are desperate for an updated. On the other hand, ABP critics argue that this could be another promotional gimmick in preparation for the series’ reported return on television pointing out that this is not the very first time he has posted something like this and besides, he calls his self the King of Extremes.
Both people from the Discovery Channel and the “Alaskan Bush People“ PR Team are yet to release an official statement on Bear’s current condition.
Maybe a hacked Instagram account
Some Alaskan Bush People fans suggest that, perhaps, Bear’s social media handle has been hacked or he is actually playing another trick to his supporters. The viral photo’s filter is quite similar to the one he has posted hours before.
Prior to this RIP post, the Brown son has posted a digitally manipulated photo of himself. He shares to the audience that it was a product of his continued effort to learn photography with the help from the film people they have been working with.
“I used three things! Sunshine shadows and a phone filter! All my work is Thanks to the film people that that took the time to help me out, Bear said. He ended the short caption with his favorite hashtags like #learningphotography #filmpeople #awesome #cool #extreme.
Shocked fans cry foul
Contrary to the commendations he received for his first photo edit, the people who have seen his latest post are very upset. Whether the RIP Bear post is intentional or not, fans are calling out the “Alaskan Bush People“ star for crossing the line with his extreme antics.
A fan page called Adventures of the Brown Family expressed its disappointment, saying, “No not true, you should not play around with your fans emotions!”
Sarah Johnson Hall reprimanded the 31-year-old star to not joke about death. “You (don’t) joke about death especially with people who admire and follow your life in social media,” she scolded.
Meanwhile, there are still people who come in to defend his action. Both Perle Haggard and Mary Jean Gonzales believe that the @bearbrownthekingofextreme has been hacked and Bear is unaware of the tricky post. Shannon Seifert suggested that it could be a reference to anything, not just death. It could be (RIP) to his hair, acting career, tv show, anything. The fan added that she is glad he is alive and reminded fans that this it is Bears account.
Note that there is no confirmation whether Bear is truly dead or all this tricky stuff are just hoax. For more updates, bookmark Blasting News or follow the “Alaskan Bush People” channel.
