Ellen DeGeneres Honors Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss with Emotional Tribute on Anniversary of His Death, Urges Mental Health Awareness

On the first anniversary of Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss’ passing, Ellen DeGeneres has paid a heartfelt tribute to her late friend and colleague. tWitch, a beloved DJ and dancer, was found dead on December 13, 2022, in a Los Angeles hotel from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His death deeply impacted DeGeneres, especially as she reflected on his hidden struggles with mental health.

In a moving social media post on December 13, 2023, DeGeneres shared some cherished memories of tWitch and emphasized the importance of being there for one another. She recounted their end-of-show ritual of singing, dancing, and expressing their love for each other, a routine that she dearly misses.

DeGeneres also reminisced about their trips together, including a memorable visit to Las Vegas where they enjoyed a Silk Sonic concert and their shared love of music. She fondly recalled one of their final trips to Miraval with producer Andy Lassner, highlighting a moment where tWitch overcame his fear to stand atop a tall pole alongside Andy. This experience, she noted, was one of their most enjoyable shoots.

Through these memories, DeGeneres stressed that tWitch’s legacy continues. However, his unexpected death serves as a poignant reminder of the hidden struggles people face. DeGeneres expressed her sadness over tWitch not sharing his challenges, emphasizing that he was perceived as a happy individual and that she and others would have readily offered support had they known.

The tribute concluded with a critical message, directing those struggling with suicidal thoughts or mental health crises to seek help, providing contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. DeGeneres’ touching remembrance of tWitch not only honors his memory but also underscores the vital importance of mental health awareness and support.
