Comedian and trans activist Daphne Dorman has died aged 44 in an apparent suicide, after the actress posted a final message to Facebook saying goodbye to her loved ones.
She accompanied the post with a shot of herself with her name and the dates 30 April 1975-11 October 2019. Along with that, was a message that read:
‘So long and thanks for all the fish.’
Forming a career in the entertainment industry, Dorman, a transgender comedian and activist, was mentioned in Dave Chappelle’s divisive Netflix comedy special, Sticks And Stones back in August.
‘I’m sorry. I’ve thought about this a lot before this morning. How do you say “goodbye” and “I’m sorry” and “I love you” to all the beautiful souls you know? For the last time,’ she wrote in her last message, posted on Friday. ‘There’s no good way. That’s what I got out of all that thought.’
‘To those of you who are mad at me: please forgive me. To those of you who wonder if you failed me: you didn’t. To those of you feel like I failed you: I did and I’m sorry and I hope you’ll remember me in better times and better light.’ ‘I love you all. I’m sorry. Please help my daughter, Naia, understand that none of this is her fault. Please remind her that I loved her with every fiber of my being.’
Daphne’s sister confirmed her sibling had died, releasing a tribute online.
