The World Says Goodbye To John Witherspoon

Comedic actor John Witherspoon, has died at age 77. He was best known for his role in Rapper Ice Cube's sequel of the "Friday" movies. Witherspoon was definitely a very comical individual and well known for his taste in style, which generally was compiled of many patterns, colors, and a funky bow tie, that many of us would never put together, in just about every role he played. He started as a standup comedian but then later began to land more TV roles during the 1970s, '80s and '90s. He appeared on shows like "WKRP In Cincinnati," "Hill Street Blues," and "The Wayans Bros" as they called him "Pops." Many Actors and Actresses looked at him to be a father figure and have expressed their feelings of his death on twitter. He will truly be missed.
