Isaac Kappy (February 17, 1977 – May 13, 2019) was an American actor and musician known for his roles in the films Thor (2011) and Terminator Salvation (2009) and in the AMC television series Breaking Bad.[1][2][3] He was a member of the band Monster Paws.[3]

Career

Kappy made his feature film debut as a hustler in the movie Beerfest (2006). He would go on to act in the movies Not Forgotten, Fanboys, Terminator Salvation, Saint John of Las Vegas (all 2009), Klown Kamp Massacre (2010), Lemonade Mouth, Thor, and 10 Years (all 2011), and the television series Breaking Bad, The Night Shift, and Rachel Dratch's Late Night Snack.[4][better source needed]

As a musician, Kappy played in the band Charles McMansion with Tom Sandoval. The group released one recording, the song "T.I.P." (an acronym for Touch In Public), and appeared on the reality show Vanderpump Rules.[5]

Kappy appeared as a guest on Alex Jones' radio show InfoWars in August 2018, on which he accused multiple movie stars of pedophilia as part of the QAnon conspiracy theory.[5] During the broadcast, Jones asked Kappy to be more circumspect and avoid "getting into names", while Kappy briefly insisted Jones was "gaslighting" him by querying his claims.[6]

In early January 2021, American lawyer and conspiracy theorist Lin Wood tweeted that Kappy had been involved in a wide-ranging attempt to reveal a massive pedophile ring involving Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court John Roberts.[7] Wood has not provided any evidence for these statements, and his allegations bear similarity to the discredited far-right conspiracy theory Qanon, which involves a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles who run a global child sex-trafficking ring.[8]

Legal issues

In 2018, Kappy was investigated by police after reportedly threatening actress Paris Jackson and actor Seth Green.[9] Jackson accused Kappy of choking her at a party they were both attending.[2][9] The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed an investigation, but said it was not active.[10]

Death

In 2019, Kappy committed suicide by jumping from a bridge into oncoming traffic in Arizona. Before his death, Kappy posted a lengthy note on his Instagram account, in which he opened up about his drug and alcohol abuse, and apologized to Jesus Christ, Donald Trump, and the QAnon conspiracy theory movement. The post was captioned, “Beware the man that has nothing to lose, for he has nothing to protect".[1][2][3][11]
