When it comes to influencers and content creators on the internet, you never know when the well is going to dry up. Despite a disproportionate and often volatile level of fame and attention when it comes to posting often, these people have regular lives and may not end up posting all of it online. By that same measure, it's easy for regular folks on the internet to miss out on content creators posting, especially once their proverbial 15 minutes are up. To that end, Brother Nature has shocked folks.

What happened to Brother Nature? The internet hasn't noticed him for a while, but he's certainly been around.

On April 12, 2024, Brother Nature posted on X, sharing a selfie of him next to Miley Cyrus. The post was captioned, "JUST MET MILEY IM GEEKED".

Interestingly enough, most of his followers were surprised that he even posted at all. His post was met with a fair amount of shock from netizens who believe he hadn't posted in a while. One person wrote, "Brother Nature where the f--- you been loca?!"

Another joked, "Why was I more surprised and excited to see him than Miley?"

Many seem to suggest that Brother Nature hasn't been on social media or has otherwise avoided making appearances in public. In reality, however, that couldn't be further from the truth. He posts incredibly frequently on all of his aforementioned social media channels, with the only noticeable period of downtime taking place on X between November 2023 and February 2024. Otherwise, he shares content about as frequently as any other creator in his field.

In December 2023, he even released a documentary on Prime Video that chronicles the efforts made by himself and several charities to provide food to struggling families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He's been pretty busy and it shows on his social media. However, most folks probably haven't paid him much mind between his past controversies.

Many remember Brother Nature for getting jumped in 2019.

Most content creators aren't free of controversy and Kelvin is no different. In October 2018, he issued an apology for racist and offensive tweets he had made when he was 12 years old. At the time, he stated that he "[took] total responsibility for [his] words."

Later in December 2019, he made the news when he was jumped at a restaurant.

Reportedly, he had been demanding to be served at the store around closing time and was being recorded by bystanders during the incident. After demanding that they delete their photos, Kelvin supposedly challenged them to a fight. At the time, it was widely reported that he was jumped unprovoked.

Since then Brother Nature has managed to avoid controversy all while setting out on philanthropic endeavors. However, most people remember him for the nasty stuff, which has a longer half-life on the internet than most realize.
