Joey King Slams Airplane Passenger Who Thought She Had Cancer Because of Her Shaved Head

Joey King is slamming a rude airplane passenger who didn’t want to sit near her because he thought she had cancer.

The 19-year-old actress, who is currently rocking a shaved head for a new TV show role, took to her Twitter to document the experience.

“Y’all I’m on a plane & this man next to me literally turned to me with his phone in my face & took a photo of me as if I wouldn’t notice & texted his wife that he’s sitting next to a girl who has cancer (just cuz I’m bald) & that hes scared to ‘catch it’…Y R PPL STUPID SUMTIMES,” Joey wrote.

She continued, “I read his text over his shoulder it said ‘some bald chick next to me with F**kn cancer coughed and I don’t wanna catch it’…..um ya jokin?”

Thankfully, Joey doesn’t actually have cancer but we can’t get over how ignorant and rude that passenger was!

    Well unless she had lice then one can safely assume she shaved her head for attention.
    So now we can safely assume she shaved her head to get attention AND make a federal case out of getting the attention she was begging for.
    Poor baby. Life is sooo hard.

    Then I take that back. Thanks for the info.
    But public shaming someone for a faux pas is uncalled for. She could have just had a quiet word with him.

    oh please, if you’re bald and people don’t think you have cancer they’re not attentive enough to you but when they do you feel offended. GTFOUH, no one can please you enough!
