Betty White Is About To Turn 100 Years Old And Fans Want "National Security Protection" For Her

The 'Golden Girls' actress is turning 100 on January 17, 2022.

Can you believe America's national treasure is almost 100 years old? Last year, Betty White spent time in quarantine revealing to ET at the time,  "You probably didn't ask, but I'll tell you anyway. What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting The Pet Set re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day." The Pet Set was a TV series she created in the 1970s featuring celebrities and their pets with animal-related discussions. Although she's slowed down in terms of acting in the recent past, she has starred in Hot In Cleveland in the mid-2010s and lent her voice to a character in Toy Story 4 back in 2019, reports Comic Book. Fans were worried for the Golden Girl when news of the pandemic first broke ou but back then a representative for White told TODAY that "Betty is fine."



In an interview with PEOPLE White explained how she's been staying positive throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. "I don't like the other side," White said. "The positive side is a lot more fun." She continued, "I am blessed with good health ... so turning 99 is no different than turning 98." The adorable comedienne credits one thing that still keeps her going: "A sense of humor ... Don't take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others—not that I would—but you cannot lie to yourself."



Last year just before her birthday the 99-year-old actress was trending on Twitter and caused everyone a scare as they thought she had passed. Now, they’re desperate to ensure her safety. The television and comedy legend will celebrate her 100th-year milestone on January 17, 2022 and fans are calling for the actress to be given extra protection. Twitter users are even asking for help from the federal government with @HeyokaEmpath01 tweeting: Betty White is 99 years old and 3 months away from 100; please provide her with national security protection and wrap her safely in bubble wrap; we love her. Sure enough other fans were quick to follow. Check out what they had to say below:
