  • This has been a bad year for the deaths of our favorite celebrities. From David Bowie to Prince to Muhammad Ali, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and even the guy who played Alf— the dude in the Alf suit passed away a few days ago! Mihaly “Michu” Mezaros! Celebrity death has become a 2016 meme, so one soul wants to protect one of our most beloved celebrities… Betty White.

    Demetrios Hrysikos has said nay! Betty White shall be protected! This brave hero logged on online and launched a GoFundMe to protect Betty White from the cruel specter of death. The GoFund Me asked for two grand, and already it has risen to $8,600 with $10,000 as the new goal, and Hrysikos is ready to fly out and protect the Golden Girls star at all costs.

    In the event she doesn’t want, in Demetrios’ own words “a strange Greek standing guard outside her door”, he promised the money from the fundraises will go to The Spartanburg Little Theater, adding to the LA Times – “2016 has taken so many great artists, and SLT helps support and nurture new budding talent in our town,”.

    And look, that’s probably where the money is going to go. There’s no amount of money that can stave off the cruel specter of death, but people keep giving money to this impossible cause! Are people trying to bribe death? Good luck guys! Good luck trying to bribe death!
