A famous internet celebrity has just been reported dead. According to TMZ, Brandon Moore has passed away at the young age of 31.
"According to the Contra Costa County Coroner's report, the exact cause of death was polypharmacy -- meaning he died as a result of ingesting multiple drugs. The coroner says Moore's blood tested positive for cocaine, morphine, codeine, methamphetamines, and ecstasy," TMZ reported.
Moore was a social media star who was credited with one of the most popular viral memes of all time. It is called the "what are those" meme and was taken by Moore when he was interacting with a local police officer. During the arrest of another suspect, Moore told the officer he wanted to know what his police boots were.
"The internet comedian, known as Young Busco, made a huge splash in 2015 after mocking a police officer's shoes as a joke. You'll recall, while his friend was being arrested, Brandon joked about the cop's clunky boots, saying, 'What are those?'" according to TMZ.
The strange moment was caught on video and quickly spread around the internet. It became a massive sensation and even made it into the Black Panther movie during a scene.
