Gamer Chrome-Gycio Bronze Live Streamed Their Suicide
Today a gamer by the name of Chrome-Gycio Bronze live streamed their death. At this time we can not find a link to the footage due to Facebook taking down both their page and the stream. What we can provide are screenshots prior to the act that folks received from their page.
At this time what I have found is that the deceased was a male crossdresser(I have kept the pronouns neutral due to the conflicting reports), a fan of Super Smash Brothers Melee, and interacted heavily in various gaming communities on facebook to the point where folks knew them. While a number of users who found out about what happened have done nothing but offer their condolences, there are a few who have sunk lower than dirt by making memes of their passing. Out of the respect of the deceased, we will not be sharing any of these images but can assure you that they exist.
I absolutely hate writing these articles. A person, filled of potential to do great things on this earth thought so little of themselves that they decided to end it all. Not only that but they thought it would be best to do it with a virtual audience which speaks volumes to the mental state of the deceased. This is a person who needed serious attention and help from family and friends, but, as far as we know, received none.

Information provided by commenters:
She did the live stream on a site called ustream and hung lifelessly for over an hour before her account on stream was banned.
Her Facebook was taken down 2 hours after she posted about going live for her suicide.
Before her Facebook account was removed the status had 200+ shares and 1.6k+ comments.
As I read the comments of those joking and making memes, asking for the link, I physically got sick from what I as reading. Most the comments were jokes and memes, they were overpowering the people who had been worried and were giving condolences. It was disgusting to see someone state that they had watched her hang for an hour. When I saw the screenshot of the video there was a single person who said they called the police as her body from the neck down had been on the screen.
Although I didn’t know her, I wish no one ever has to feel the way she felt.
Depression is an extremely hard battle to fight, and it is always heartbreaking when someone falls victim of depressions grip.
With how quickly her death went viral on Facebook, I think it might make it decently big news as the LGBTQ community has taken another loss as has the trans community and gaming community.
She’s in a happier place now, and is no longer hurting.

I was friends with the dude and the sad part is nothing could have stopped this from occurring.
From my messages and talks with him, he was in an awful place in life. He lived in the Netherlands, and didn’t have much going for him, socially or economically. His mom hated him, people at school hated him, and from what I could tell, I was one of the only people who actually seemed to find him decent. He also constantly reminded me that he had no proper interests and would never amount to anything, thus saw suicide as the only option. Every time I tried to tell him to stop, it would not work. This is unfortunate I must say, but he hated himself and shit hit the fan too hard. I don’t think people took his threats seriously, which is sad. I never thought he would do it, but he messaged me before I did it asking if I wanted to watch, to which I replied “no, i dont want to see it, nor do i want it to happen.” and then a few hours later it happened. All unforunate times we live in.

The person he was “married” to on Facebook has confirmed that he was, in fact, a male crossdresser. Also check his VK account. Aside from the racist shit he posts he posts a lot of things about traps and CDs. The whole “trans woman” thing started by trolls as a way to make fun of him as well make an ass of the trans people who shared it. So far they have succeeded i see…

Maksim (Chrome) was a male crossdresser as confirmed by his irl friends and close friends and his personal blog. The rumor of him being transgender started as a rude joke from trolls.

I was his irl friend but mostly communicated with him online, I have to say I’m disgusted by the fact that you refer to him as “her” and even called him “transgender”.
“Gycio” felt a strong hatred towards the SJW movement and similair far-left movements and so do I, he did show some interest in crossdressing in the last part of his life but this had nothing to do with his suicide and was mostly a result of a lack of female contact (this is my personal take on the things he had said to me at least). Like another person on here said: don’t use his death to push this agenda, even if he was transgender (which he wasn’t but this is just an example) his suicide was a result of loneliness and a lack of understanding from the people around him.
He was not part of this “LGBQT” community as you may cal it and he was not part of the transgender community…
I personally didn’t know this person who was taken from us too soon, and I am sad to find out about them after their passing. There has been simply too much death this year. This news might not reach bigger outlets Kotaku or Polygon but I’ll do whatever I can to spread awareness because this person does matter.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from depression or offers any sort of signs that they might consider harming themselves, try to reach out to them for support and never forget National Suicide Prevention Lifeline which is 1-800-273-8255. It is available 24 hours a day and might just be enough help to get you or a loved one through their day. No one should ever be made to feel that they are less than what they are, no matter the circumstance. Even those who inflict physical or verbal harm on others suffer themselves and need support, sometimes even more than their victims.
We will update this article as additional information rolls in.
