I mean, who doesn’t know Jason Farone? No, not “know” in that sense, please. But from his hilarious YouTube video series Foon Fan Friday and dozens (hundreds?) more.
So when this Angeleno disappeared from social media not long ago, there was a buzz among his friends and social media followers. What happened to Jason?
Now we know with the release today of “Grindr Saved My Life,” a hilarious and simultaneously instructive and moving video that shows Farone’s climb out of a fall into deep depression and what he learned about the impact of social media on gay life.
Farone, who has moved from stand-up comedian to internet sensation, has always been known for his sharp wit and brilliant social criticism. His profile states, accurately, that he was “ born to bitch.” You can follow him on Twitter @jasonfarone and subscribe to his YouTube channel.
