Rory Teasley, more famous as 2pump4tv due to his social media pages, had shared a light-hearted video on his TikTok account the day he was allegedly killed by his boyfriend. Teasley was 28 when he was found unconscious by cops inside an apartment in Pontiac, Michigan last Thursday night, January 6. Docquen Jovo Watkins reportedly choked him to death over a video game argument. The social media influencer was declared dead at a hospital after being taken there by the cops.
After Teasley's death, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said, “We see far too often across the country these days when people resort to violence over trivial and insignificant disagreements. There is never a reason where violence is acceptable over a disagreement. Those who do so will be held accountable.”

He also had a strong base on Instagram with 65.7k followers. His bio read, “Everybody Gay Bestfriend RORY,” along with “International Twerk Instructor,” and “Comedian”.
His last TikTok post was shared on January 6 in which he parodied the pain of getting old. The clip showed him “struggling” getting off the sofa before he put his hand on his back. He wrote over the video, “Approaching 30 Be Like…” and captioned it as “Getting old a MF (sic).” The post has garnered more than 3,300 likes. Besides, Teasley also had a YouTube page with 11,000 subscribers. There he used to share videos of trending challenges, reaction content, and more.
