We’re happy to report that rapper CupcakKe is safe (confirmed by her friend Elijah Daniel) after she wrote “I’m about to commit suicide” on Twitter last night, and commented, “Thank you for everything y’all have done for me I really appreciate it” on her Instagram.
The Chicago-based rapper, real name Elizabeth Harris, who last year we referred to as “eloquent and queer-supportive in the raunchiest way possible,” was taken to the hospital by the Chicago Police Department after officers checked on her following the troubling social media posts.
CupcakKe has yet to show up on social media since her initial posts.
But following the incident, the social media accounts of rapper CupcakKe have been inundated with well-wishes and messages of support, some by other famous musicians who have worked with her, like Charli XCX and Iggy Azalea, and others by a litany of LGBTQ fans who look up to her.
“You are one of the most unique, genuine and loving people I have ever met in this industry,” Charli XCX wrote on Twitter. “The world would never be the same without you. We all love you SO MUCH CupcakKe. From the bottom of our hearts. Please stay strong. Please confide in friends and family. You are such a beautiful and wonderful person and we simply cannot lose you.”
Iggy Azalea, who had planned to have rapper CupcakKe open for her “Bad Girls” tour before it was canceled, tweeted, “I understand how hopeless and overwhelmed with negativity we can sometimes feel … I hope you’ll take some time with those that really know YOU best; then when you’re ready come back stronger than ever!”
Check out some of the touching fan messages for rapper CupcakKe left on her Twitter:
