LeJeune was from Lafayette, Louisiana, and at the time of his death had more than 1.7 million followers who enjoyed watching him eat very strange things according to the Advocate.
Clayton Claydorm, who was LeJeune’s brother posted a TikTok video saying that his brother died soon after being taken to the hospital.
He said his brother’s death was believed to be due to a heart attack.
“This is still pretty new, I don’t know what’s gonna be happening in the near future,” he said.
“But I thought I should get on TikTok and let everybody know. Please keep his legacy alive.”
Claydorm had a request for his brother’s fans.
“Watch his content that he does have out. Keep him alive. He loved making people happy,” he said.
The last video LeJeune posted was on Wednesday, when he ate a mammoth Fruit Loop dipped in milk, according to The Sun.
Other adventures saw him try to use an electric kettle to boil a package of hot dogs or eat a 30-plus-year-old box of cereal.
That was the same day LeJeune was not feeling well and called his mother, Claydorm said, according to TMZ.
Claydorm said his brother later called for an ambulance to get to a local hospital, where he died.
Claydorm stated LeJeune’s father and grandfather suffered from genetic heart problems.
