Dustin Diamond, who played lovable and iconic Screech Powers on 'Saved by the Bell,' has died. He was 44.
He was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer, and was receiving treatment.
His team released the statement below:
This fucking stings, because I grew up watching 'Saved by the Bell.' I glued myself to the TV every Saturday morning, watching Screech and wishing he was my friend. As nerdy and peculiar as he was, he was a damn good friend.
Sure, Dustin Diamond had made mistakes in life, but no one deserves cancer. Cancer took him at such a young age.
Cancer can go suck a fucking rotted cock as far as I'm concerned.
Dustin, thank you for the laughs on SBTB. You will be forever missed.
RIP Dustin Diamond.
