John Amos, renowned for his role in “Good Times” and often referred to as “America’s Dad,” has decided not to accept any of the money collected through a GoFundMe campaign initiated by his daughter, Shannon Amos, Your Content has learned.

The fundraiser, which claimed that John was a victim of elder abuse and potential financial crimes while allegedly fighting for his life in a hospital, has since been taken down.

Shannon Amos launched the GoFundMe campaign earlier this month with a goal of $500,000.

However, John expressed his disinterest in the funds, prompting the removal of the campaign from the GoFundMe platform.

A spokesperson from GoFundMe stated that the decision was made after being informed of John’s wish to decline the raised funds.

The spokesperson further emphasized that the platform prioritizes honoring the intentions of donors.

The GoFundMe initiated by Shannon reportedly garnered $13,000 from approximately 300 contributors before its removal.

GoFundMe has confirmed that the donations will be refunded to the generous individuals who contributed to the campaign.

John’s representative clarified that while he had been hospitalized in June, his life was not in jeopardy.

Additionally, John expressed his confusion regarding his daughter’s decision to start the crowdfunding campaign on his behalf, according to TMZ.
