You people are so insensitive. You guys are talking about an actually human being. I tell ya, haters will be haters for ever. If YOUR MOMMA HAD A SEIZURE You wouldn't have the balls to talk about her like that and you wouldn't want someone to talk about you like that. Fat and skinny people get siezures. It probably has nothing to do with his weight. UGH! You people make me sick. #IHATEDUMBASSPEOPLE.#

Why would people pray for this dude that wouldn't give a **** if anything happened to you or your loved ones? This country is full of **** riders. He'll be ok. CO s have good health insurance anyway.

philip    

it's the planes that are causing the seizures. the oscillating sounds, noises, vibrations, etc. are likely brining on the seizures since it happened again in an airplane.someone tell him ! seriously!
