SC man launces fundraiser to protect Betty White from 2016

December 28, 2016

Following a string of celebrity deaths in 2016, a South Carolina man wants to be a guard for Betty White.

Following the death of Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher on Tuesday, a South Carolina man wants to make sure White isn’t next.

Demetrios Hrysikos started a GoFundMe page to pay for him to stand guard over the 94-year-old Golden Girls actress.

He wrote “if she’s ok with it, I will fly to wherever Betty White is and keep her safe ’til January 1, 2017.”

By Wednesday, Hrysikos had raised $1,800 of his $2,000 goal. He said if White does not want his protection, he will donate the money to a youth theater company in Spartanburg.
