Mat George was the Co-host of “She Rates Dogs.” He was killed in a hit-and-run in Los Angeles early Saturday morning, his co-host confirmed Sunday.

The LAPD said the incident occurred around 2:20 a.m. when a white BMW hit a pedestrian in an unmarked crosswalk without stopping. The BMW then fled, and the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

George and Okland spoke about relationships and pop culture on their podcast, which grew from the Twitter account of the same name that posts anonymous screenshots of messages with terrible exes. George also regularly went viral with jokes on his personal Twitter account.
Fans of the podcast and George’s Twitter account were shocked by the news and tweeted about his content’s effect on their lives.
“I didn’t know him, but I read his tweets every day. His content was a part of my routine,” one person tweeted. “I can’t believe shit like this is real and happens to people that I interact with daily. RIP Mat George:(.”
On the podcast’s Twitter account, Okland told their fans that she and George had recorded one more episode that was supposed to come out next week, but it will likely be put on hold.
