Cameron Dallas Says Caleb Logan Bratayley's Fans Deserved Periscope of Funeral (VIDEO)


The fact Caleb Logan Bratayley was a YouTube superstar, meant the 13-year-old boy's funeral NEEDED to be livestreamed on the web ... according to fellow social media giant Cameron Dallas.

Cameron was leaving BOA Tuesday and we talked to him about Caleb's tragic death from an unknown medical condition.

Earlier in the day, the Bratayley family laid Caleb to rest and Periscoped the entire funeral -- which might seem like a serious case of oversharing, but as Cameron explained the family's millions upon millions of fans were "a part of him."

This is insightful ... especially from a 21-year-old.
