YouTube celebrity Rollin Ray hospitalized after wig catches fire
Written by Vibe Houston Staff on January 15, 2021
Rolling Ray is asking for prayers after he received major burns to his head and body Wednesday.
Ray got his start on social media by sharing funny videos and talking about celebrities. He reached major stardom after appearing on the Judge Lynn Toler show with his then-boyfriend.
Ray, who is wheelchair-bound, shared the devastating news with his 2 million YouTube followers.
“I’m in the hospital, got burnt, my wig caught on fire,” Ray says in a Live video while sitting on a hospital bed. “ I burnt my whole skin, legs, arms, feet and everything. I love ya’ll and I want ya’ll to keep me in yall’s prayers.”
Fans of the star took to Twitter to send their well wishes, but some called his accident “karma” for Ray’s online beef with City Girls group member Caresha, also known as ‘Yung Miami.” The rapper made fun of Ray’s disability, and he returned jabs about her deceased child’s father.
Let’s have some class, people! Anywho, we sincerely wish Ray makes a speedy recovery.
