Viral internet child star, Antwain Fowler, who became a social media sensation, has died at age six from an immune disease.
The boy, also known as Big TJ, was best known for famously asking “where we about to eat at.”
After he went viral, more videos of him asking for food were shared online and they all went viral as people found his love for food endearing. Unfortunately, he passed on and his mother confirmed the sad news on his Instagram account.
Antwain has been suffering from autoimmune Enteropathy, an illness which makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrition. Antwain’s mum previously set up a GoFundMe page for her son after he was diagnosed with the illness in 2015. His mum China, who has been sharing his treatment journey on Instagram explained that he had undergone over 25 surgeries and he was unable to drink milk, or eat solid foods during his earlier childhood.
She broke the sad news via his social media account which read: “The pain in my heart is like no other Why God!!! Never in a million years My heart is out my chest!!!!”
China added: “I tried hiding you from the world early on but couldn’t you were meant to be seen. My precious babyyyyy my god I just cannot believe it this is unbelievable man I’m trying soooooo hard so so hard but I can’t dodge the feeling… God you really did a number on me I didn’t deserve to be left empty like this A huge whole in my heart the strength I had left with you baby Still haven’t grasped the fact that you actually left me Baby come back I need you.”
