HOLLYWOOD—Child actor and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant Kyle Massey was the target of a hoax on twitter over the weekend. A rumor circulated claiming that the 21 year-old “That’s So Raven Star” was dying of cancer.
Although it is not positive where the rumor was started, Massey released a statement confirming that he is indeed cancer free and not terminally ill.
"I want to say first, 'I do not have cancer,' and I don't know where this inconsiderate and insensitive rumor originated from," he said. "My team and I are making every attempt to find out the original source of this story because it's just not cool. This hoax is just plain classless! Especially in light of the various tragedies happening this weekend and the Trayvon Martin verdict."
Massey was very upset that someone would joke about such a serious subject and disease. Kyle has had family members who have passed away from cancer so the issue was no laughing matter to him.
He added, “I have had 2 uncles and a very dear friend who passed away in the last two years from cancer and my Granddad currently has prostate cancer and my Grandmother is currently in a nursing home because of Alzheimer's Disease...So, making light of any illnesses that a person has no control over getting is not something to joke about or make light of!”
