The message motivated Casey to give $250 to a food bank in his honor.
When he shared the pictures, Casey added:
‘Been complaining about LA a lot, lemme share why I love LA. I scratched a guys car this morning when parking my truck, total accident, small but noticeable scratch. I left the owner a note on the wiper and he texted me…’
He went on adding that he is a ‘terrible driver’.
Monday morning selfie with my #gear360 also it's really really hard to hang on to a rope ladder with one hand while flying beneath a helicopter.
Fans have been loving the exchange, with one writing:
“Love it! As soon as everything hopefully gets back to normal we can tackle your driving skills together…”
“Still truly good people in this world.”
And a third one commented:
“We love this!!!!”
Casey, who has risen to fame thanks to his interesting vlogging style, moved to LA from New York in 2019, leaving many of his fans saddened when he left the place that had featured in so many of his projects.
“This is it, this is the last page of a very long chapter,’ he explained, after literally smashing up his old studio.
New York City is a place where you can do anything and be anything because everyone is too damn busy to worry about what anyone else is doing,” he noted.
About his moving he had the following to say:
‘When Frank [Sinatra] said, “If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere”, he wasn’t talking about Paris, Tokyo or London, and he sure as s*** wasn’t talking about Los Angeles.’
It looks like LA has won his heart.
