Instagram influencer Niece Waidhofer has amassed a huge following of 4.2 million people on Instagram.
The model struck fame after she started the “Roast Me” trend on Reddit.
Waidhofer wasn’t shy about her struggle with mental health and would often post about it.
Unfortunately, the influencer was found dead at her mansion in Katy, Texas, a small city outside of Houston.
“Sadly, Niece took her own life after a long battle with mental health issues,” a relative said.
Family members added, “She was very open with her followers about her struggles, even wanting to help followers who also suffered.”
In early May followers noticed that Waidhofer – who was single with no kids – deleted most of her photos and videos.
One of the three posts left on her account was a 2019 photo of her with an unnamed man.
“From our very first date, I knew this was the man I want to spend the rest of my life with,” Waidhofer wrote. “Even still, there is nothing that could have prepared me for the elation I felt when he asked me to be his wife. My love, you are all I will ever want. I will love you with my entire heart until I take my last breath. Always.”
Those marriage plans never seemed to materialize.
Relatives said that Niece was more than just an influencer that shared her struggles and that she took pride in the fact she did all of her Instagram posts and rarely used a professional photographer.
“Niece was more than her struggles,” her family said. “She was beautiful and kind, sensitive and funny, creative and talented, generous and compassionate, thoughtful and challenging.”
The Instagram star is another fine example of the mental health crisis that has flooded America since the hysteria of the pandemic. It is a direct result of leftist policies that have incited fear in people and anxiety in the population.
A study from the University of California San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy found that women experienced the largest decline in mental health because of coronavirus lockdowns.
The study found that lockdowns caused women to have a 38 percent increase in depression, a 44 percent increase in anxiety, and a 73 percent increase in exhaustion.
