- "YTV: It was clearly entrapment.
BC: Clearly. Unfortunately for you, however, that is irrelevant. It is expressly forbidden by The Authority to be filmed feeding on a human. You broke the law, and now, you have to pay the price.
YTV: Which is?
BC: The true death."

The "YouTube Vampire" was an unnamed minor character on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American guest starring actor Aubrey Deeker, the YouTube Vampire is the subject of Bill Compton, the Vampire King of Louisiana. Breaking the law by being filmed while feeding on a human, and having the footage released on YouTube, the YouTube Vampire was subjected by the Vampire Authority to meet the True Death. He met an untimely demise during his only appearance, on the episode "If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'?" in the series fourth season.
He is filmed feeding on a Young Woman by a pair of anti-vampire campaigners attempting to prove the threat posed by vampires to America. The footage was posted on YouTube and King of Louisiana Bill Compton sentences him to the True Death for his stupidity despite his protests of entrapment. Bill's guard Bucky then dragged the screaming vampire away, and destroyed him. ("If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'?")
