Listen up ILOSM fam’: Actor, Reginald Vel Johnson, Jr., the dude who played the father, “Carl Winslow,’ on the 90’s sitcom, Family Matters, want’s y’all to know one thing: He ain’t dead!

In case you didn’t know, there is currently a death rumor spreading through Twitter like wild fire, that “Carl Winslow” has just passed away. The rumor got started after a shady website posted the news as fact. This rumor has now brought Reginald out of social media obscurity- he hasn’t really been on it (except once) since August 2016. But if folks are calling death early into the man’s life before it’s his time to go, that tends to make anyone wanna set the record straight and get that negative energy out of their universe on sight. And set the record straight he did.

Not only did a site create a death hoax with “Reginald’s name in it, but a clock company apparently assumed the worst as well, and advertised a clock that has “Carl Winslow’s” soul trapped inside of it. People are doing WAY too much! Needless to say, Reginald Vel Johnson shut that down to:Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 3.23.20 PM
So in the words of Ice Cube, “today was a good day” because is was one LESS celebrity we lost in 2017. Within the past year, we’ve lost FAR more than enough, no need to try to push more into that group before it’s their time to go. It’s a beautiful thing to see that Reginald Vel Johnson took the news of his “death” in stride though. Wishing the brotha many, many more birthdays to come.
