Her parents said she died “suddenly and unexpectedly” on November 24 in the early morning hours, but did not provide further details of her death.

Megha was a confident and independent young woman. She will be dearly missed. She loved her fans and would have wanted you to know of her passing,” they said.

There’s been an outpouring of tribute videos from fellow TikTokers honoring the late young influencer.

The beauty and lifestyle influencer was based in New York City and Toronto, Canada.

One of her most viral videos from last year, which has well over 58 million views, was captioned #bodypositivity, and showed her trying out a twerking dance routine.

“It’s not about what’s down here it’s about what’s up in here,” she said while pointing at her brain in a follow-up tutorial.
