In an Instagram post, Jdn and Hypeboii wrote, “Used to saying RIP but this hurt the most,” using an emoi of a broken heart. “We always hated comedy cuz all people see is laughs, not what we hadda do or go through. They already took the fun out the comedy but now it’s not gon be the same without you. We love you brother, see you in the future.”
“It’s just great dude, like, I just love it so much. I love it when I come home and then my daughter, she just comes running to the door and she just screams like ‘ahhhh!’ and then she runs around in a circle and she comes back and she hugs me,” Haha said. “It’s like the best feeling, bro. “You don’t really understand, like, fatherhood, until you’re in that. It’s really true.”
