There may not be anything sadder than a parent having to announce the news of their child who has died way too young and way to soon, but that’s exactly what the parents of social media star Megha Thakur had to do.

On November 28, 2022, Thakur’s parents posted on their 21-year-old daughter’s Instagram account the sad news that she had died “suddenly and unexpectedly” on Thanksgiving morning. They added, “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.”

Thakur had only 100,000 Instagram followers and almost 1 million TikTok followers. She preached body positivity and photos and videos of herself at photoshoots, in daily life and on “influencer trips.”

Thakur’s parents did not mention a cause of death; however, in July, Thakur talked about some health problems she had been having. On TikTok, she shared, “I have really bad anxiety, which turned into stress, which turned into a heart attack. So I’ve been dealing with that.”

The last Instagram post Thakur ever made was just days before her death. She posted a video where she was confidently walking across the busy street, and she captioned the video, “YOU’RE in charge. Remember that #confidence #selflove”
