Emmy-award winning actress Betty White was expected to celebrate her 100th birthday in the new year. The former The Proposal actress had an acting career that spans over decades. She’s known most notoriously for her role on the evening sitcom The Golden Girls. Furthermore, the actress also worked as a comedian and even could spit a few bars. Clearly, Betty White’s colleagues regarded her as a triple-threat. Unfortunately, the multi-talented actress passed on before she could celebrate her 100th birthday this month.
Betty White Passes On
Given the nine lives of Betty White, it’s hard to believe that the deemed “First Lady of Television” has left us. On December 31, the day before New Years Day, White passed away in her Los Angeles home. She was two weeks shy from celebrating her 100th birthday. Furthermore, TMZ first reported that emergency responders arrived Friday morning at her house and found her dead at 9:30 am. Betty White died of natural causes.
Only days before, White had expressed her utter gratitude and surprise at the number of fans celebrating her birthday with her. The 99-year-old took to Twitter where she shared a People magazine article that celebrated her upcoming 100th birthday.
“My 100th birthday . . . I cannot believe it is coming up, and People Magazine is celebrating with me! The new issue of @people is available on newsstands nationwide tomorrow,” she tweeted.
Obviously, everyone else wanted to celebrate Betty White’s birthday, too.
Rapper & Comedian Zack Fox Shares Betty White’s Tribute
When news of the actress’s death started to circulate, people flooded the web with tributes. While former co-star Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock honored her, others like rapper Zack Fox shared a few words. In fact, most fans started retweeting Fox’s past lyrics from his 2019 track “Jesus Is The One (I Got Depression).”
In the song, Fox raps “RIP Betty White/She aint dead but for when she die ‘cause I know it’s coming up.’” Fans have since noted that the rapper foresaw her approaching death.
Oddly enough, people have shared the lyric several times over on social media since Betty White’s passing.
