Hollywood Stars Mourn Eric The Actor
Hollywood is mourning Eric “The Actor” Lynch. As Gossip Cop reported, the 39-year-old “Wack Pack” member from “The Howard Stern Show” died on Saturday afternoon. Lynch suffered from dwarfism and a variety of other ailments, and his manager said after having heart problems on Saturday, his organs gave out.
Lynch, who was a frequent phone guest on Stern’s radio show since 2002 and also made cameo appearances on various TV shows, had many fans in Hollywood. Zac Efron, who had nominated Lynch for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge just last month, tweeted, “#EricTheActor you will be missed. Sending my condolences to all of Eric’s family and friends. #ByeForNow.” Like Efron, many stars’ social media tributes included Lynch’s signature phrase, “Bye for now,” as well as “Ack Ack.” See the celebrity reactions below.
