Sharissa Turk, 25, is dead. If you do not recognize the name, your kids might. Turk was the “blue drug fairy” in a YouTube video that went viral entitled “My World Is Blue.” The video was made by Staten Island’s White Trash Clan and produced by Turk’s one-time fiancé Incite DaRiot.
Soon after the video was shot in 2013, Turk was arrested for selling oxycodone. Turk was employed by Edible Arrangements at the time.
Turk cut a deal that avoided prison time in exchange for participation in a drug-treatment program. It did not work. She was found dead by her boyfriend in her Staten Island home from a suspected drug overdose.
Her former fiancé insists that the video was meant to “show the downfall of drug users.” However, it seems to have had the opposite impact on the Internet as a celebration of drug use. You can judge below:
By the way, the film’s alumni also included Gerard Kelly, one of the rappers in the video. He was found dead in August from a likely drug overdose.
