Viral Video Star Antwain Fowler Dies at 6

In Summary

Fowler is best known for his “Where we about to eat at?” video, in which the 6-year-old asks his mother the question while sinking into his car seat. 

Antwain Fowler, the 6-year-old boy who became a viral sensation after the release of his “Where we about to eat at?” video, has died, People reports. 

Fowler’s sudden death was confirmed by his mother, China, on Sunday with a heartbreaking post shared to her son’s Instagram account. 

“The pain in my heart is like no other Why God,” China wrote in white text against a black background. “Never in a million years My heart is out my chest!!!!” she captioned the social media post. 

At the moment it is still unclear what Fowler died from exactly, but he has had an ongoing battle with autoimmune enteropathy, which is a condition that doesn’t allow the body to absorb nutrition. Fowler has been dealing with this disease since 2015, according to a GoFundMe page set up in his honor.  

“Antwain has been hospitalized a countless number of times due to his poor health condition,” the fundraiser reads. “Antwain has undergone over 25 surgeries. Like normal infants Antwain was unable to drink milk, or eat solid foods during his earlier childhood.”
