In a video posted to Facebook on Friday, Taylor expressed how he was feeling, saying that “I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive and I’m very, very sick.”
“I should be okay — it’s the flu,” he continued. “I’m vaccinated so I’m not worried but I certainly wouldn’t want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there. And thank you so much. I will see you again, I promise.”
He also apologised for having to dip out of pop culture convention Astronomicon in Michigan due to his illness. “I am absolutely devastated,” he said. “I am so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time and I promise you, I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can.”
