It’s been a rough couple of weeks for country music superstar Toby Keith. Yet, Keith’s fans have come out in droves to celebrate the singer’s 61st birthday. Keith, who turned another year older on July 8, was also trending on Twitter as countless users wished the “Beer For My Horses” singer a happy birthday.
“Happy Birthday Toby Keith! Hope all is well in your world! Sending prayers and healing energy,” one mega-fan wrote along with several celebratory emojis. “Happy birthday to the one & only Toby Keith! praying for your speedy recovery,” said another fan who mentioned the country star’s recent stomach cancer diagnosis.
Last month, Keith revealed his cancer diagnosis, which shocked his fans. However, he recently warned fans about fake updates regarding his current bill of health.
According to several reports, various fake accounts online have been using Keith’s name to provide “falsified updates.” Keith later took to Twitter to clarify the issue.
“We are aware of the many imposter profiles claiming to be Toby on social media,” Toby Keith’s official Twitter account said in a statement. “But it’s come to our attention that some of these accounts are now posting falsified updates regarding Toby’s health. We are working to get these removed.”
The statement continued: “Any updates will come directly from Toby’s verified social media pages.” Next, the post went on to state Toby would never personally request money. Then, the account informed victims of those fake accounts to report them to the platform.
