A Facebook reel by Ronnie Terrell Williams has gone viral on TikTok after people thought it showed Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss 24 hours before his shock passing. However, concerned fans have mistaken Williams for the Ellen DJ.
Dancer Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, best known as the much-loved DJ on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, passed away on Tuesday (December 14, 2022). CNN reported the LA County Medical Examiner had concluded Boss had taken his own life. He was 40 years old.
Stephen’s wife of nine years, fellow dancer Allison Holker Boss, confirmed to media outlets: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
The last post by tWitch on TikTok was a dance routine featuring cameos by Allison and their daughter Zaia. It was posted on Monday.
An app user named Ronnie Terrell Williams reposted the clip on Facebook Reels but some fans mistook Williams for tWitch, the actual person in the video. HITC can confirms Williams is alive and well.
