Sherman Hemsley’s Cause of Death Revealed.
The official reports are in and it’s been confirmed that the cause of Sherman Hemsley’s death was lung cancer- or as the medical report would like to list it as, ‘superior vena cava syndrome’. Techinally that’s a condition caused by tumors or cancer in the chest area, blood clots, or infection. It was originally reported as “natural causes”.
TMZ reports that Hemsley was advised before his death to get chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
It wasn’t clear if he was a smoker or not but he definitely was a legend. He was 74 years old when he died.
One of the tweets that came in after his death was from Larenz Tate (Menace II Society, Rescue Me). He said,
‘RIP Sherman Hemsley aka George Jefferson. I had the honor of wrking w the great comedic actor as a kid on his show Amen in 1988.’
So of course I had to jump on YouTube and see the episode for myself. It was an episode called “Get Em Up, Scout” where Tate played a boy scout by the name of Leshawn. He was either 12 or 13 rocking a boyscout uniform and a girly voice.
