Dumb Airline Passenger Thinks He Can Catch Cancer From Joey King’s Shaved Head

Actress Joey King has done it again – for the third time to be exact. The actress shaved her head in order to fully encompass the role of Gypsy Rose Blanchard in her new anthology series on Hulu, The Act . Although this action may be commended by those in the industry, passengers on planes may not feel the same way. Just yesterday, King tweeted that a man sitting next to her on a plane took her picture thinking she wouldn’t notice, and sent it to his wife with the caption: “some bald chick next to me with Fckn cancer coughed and I don’t wanna catch it.” This man clearly doesn’t know anything about the disease, which is impossible be passed on like the chicken pox. Guess it’s clear that some people just live under a rock.


The Act follows Blanchard, (King), and her psychotic mother, Dee Dee, (Patricia Arquette), who control her daughter’s life so much to the point where Blanchard ends up murdering her mother. Dee Dee convinces her daughter that she has epilepsy, leukemia and muscular dystrophy. The cast also includes AnnaSophia Robb, Chloë Sevigny and Calum Worthy.


In the past, King shaved her head for movie roles in “The Dark Knight Rises” as well as “Wish I Was Here,” where she also looked stunning with her bare head. Guess this is just a lesson to be learned that you have to simply “shake it off” as Taylor Swift always says. You can’t be put down by others’ lack of intelligence and common sense. Joey’s ability to stick up for herself and her character is a testament for who she is and what will come in the future series, premiering in the New Year.
