Cody Herbinko was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on February 11, 1999. After dropping out of school in his freshman year, he began using social media in the summer of 2013. Herbinko finished his tenth grade at a cyber school and transferred to a regular school for his junior year.

However, Herbinko was overwhelmed by the hate he received on social media and decided to deactivate his account temporarily.
