Back off, 2016!
This year has been awful for the world of entertainment. So far, we’ve lost Garry Shandling, Prince, David Bowie, Gene Wilder, and this week, Carrie Fisher.
It’s like they’re all trying to escape the planet, at once, for some reason.
We’ve got three days left to this year. A lot of celebrity icons could go, in that time.
One man out of Spartanburg, South Carolina doesn’t intend to take any chances.
Demetrios Hrysikos is on a mission to save Betty White from 2016. He has started a GoFundMe page to help him achieve that end.
White is the 94-year old spark plug who starred as “Rose” in “The Golden Girls.”
The page description says “Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White! If she’s okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe till Jan 1 , 2017.”
If White doesn’t need Hrysikos’ services, he promises to donate all funds raised to the Spartanburg Little Theater “to help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left [us] this year.”
Hrysikos hopes to raise $2,000 through the GoFundMe page.
What a great idea!
Frankly, I’m beginning to think Betty White will outlive us all, but it never hurts to have side help, does it?
And let’s face it: Betty White is worth saving.
