Another great man has died of this virus. Struck down.
Actually, it says “natural causes,” so he probably died because of complications with his care caused by the lockdown.
But still: the virus is responsible.
He was in the prime of his life, struck down by this evil virus.
Jerry Stiller, actor and comedian and father to Ben Stiller, has died of nature causes. He was 92.
Ben Stiller confirmed his father’s death in the early hours of Monday morning, writing on Twitter: “I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad.”

After a long career performing in comedy routines with his wife Anne Meara, appearing on Broadway and guest-starring on TV series, Stiller became known for his role on “Seinfeld” as Frank Constanza, as Leah Remini’s father on “The King of Queens,” and as Zoolander’s manager in the comedy directed by Ben Stiller.
He appeared in 26 episodes of “Seinfeld” as Constanza, the father of George (Jason Alexander), from 1993-98, with Estelle Harris playing his wife, Estelle. Stiller received an Emmy nomination for his work on the show in 1997.
This is why you have to stay in your house forever.
We don’t have any choice, folks.
Do you want more beloved elderly Jew actors to die from this virus, or from the lockdown or whatever?
Sure, you will be fine if you go out. Nothing will happen. But as you are having the time of your life, working, visiting friends, going to school, hanging out – old people will be dying.
We need to be inside so we can mourn these deaths.
We have to stay locked down.
