Recently, a lot of people have been worried about his health. It all started when this picture started trending all over social media. When you compare this new picture with old pictures of the actor, you can see that there definitely is a huge difference between the two pictures. People, especially his fans have expressed worry about the actors health saying that he is an older man, and shouldn’t be having a tummy like this, stating that the excessive fat in his body could lead to health problems and could ultimately kill him in the process.
Many fans advised the actor to go to a nearby hospital for medical check-up, at least to be sure that all is well with him. People cited risks such as insulin resistance, diabetes, and compromised lung functions as just a few of the issues that could arise if the actor keeps heading in this direction. People didn’t end there, they also said that he should get checked because the tummy fat might increase his risk of getting cardiovascular diseases, colorectal cancer, and can expose him to risk of high blood pressure.
The actor whose comic roles are heavily based on over-eating is now having fans question his decision to only play such roles and worry that these types of roles could be detrimental to his health. People are now asking the prolific actor to step down from taking such roles at least, until he can get his lab tests results back and get his body in check. Some fans wonder if the actor even put on the excess weight purposefully in a bid to get more roles on screen or to seem funnier. They are begging the comic actor not to put his health and body at risk and that he should think about his health and his family first before all of that.
While we don’t know what’s really going on with the comic actor, we agree with the fans that worry about Mr. Ibu present condition. We love Mr. Ibu and want to keep seeing him around.
