Betty White fans are using Twitter to check on her well-being after a particularly unkind 2016 in terms of celebrity deaths. We’ve pulled up the office death pool several times in the last few weeks with someone holding 5/1 odds that White is the next to go. Dedicated fans have established a ridiculous, if not clever GoFundMe hustle titled “Help protect Betty White from 2016.”
Demetrios Hrysikos of Spartanburg, SC created the page with hope of raising money for the Spartanburg Little Theater and clearly spells this out in his story. He has raised $2,481 for the theater as of this moment.
The Defender wishes White a happy and healthy 2017, but will not be opening the checkbook at this time.
