Rumour circulates about Trevor Moore’s cause of death
There is a rumour circulating on Twitter that Trevor Moore’s cause of death was due to a moonshine-related incident.
The rumour stemmed from a reddit post suggesting the comedian was drinking home-brewed moonshine on the night of his death.
Moore did post about Moonshine on his social media accounts. However, it is merely speculation to suggest this had any relationship to his death.
There is no evidence moonshine was involved in the accident that led to Trevor Moore’s death.

The Whitest Kids U Know co-founders Zach Cregger and Sam Brown also said about their colleague:
“Early this morning we learned we lost our brother, our collaborator, and the driving force behind WKUK. He was our best friend, and we speak for all of us in saying the loss of Trevor is unimaginable. We are heartbroken, but our grief pales in comparison to the loss felt by his wife and son.”
