Toby Keith took to his Instagram on Sunday, June 12 and shared the news with his nearly 800,000 followers. In the Post, he revealed: “I was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall. I’ve spent the last 6 months undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.” The ‘American Soldier’ ​​hitmaker continued, “So far so good. I need time to breathe, rest and relax. I’m looking forward to spending this time with my family,” he concludes, “but sooner than later I’ll be seeing the fans. I can barely wait for it. -T.”

Toby Keith released his first album in five years entitled Peso In My Pocket in October 2021. He has performed at events for Presidents Donald Trump, Barack Obama and George W. Bush, and has also performed hundreds of shows for US soldiers abroad, including in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2021, Donald Trump had presented Keith with the National Medal of Arts, which the National Endowment for the Arts describes as “the highest honor bestowed by the United States government upon artists and arts patrons.”

Toby Keith’s fans came forward to extend their support, as one of the users said: “If you’re glad Toby Keith has cancer because you disagree with his political views, you’re a bad person inside. I said what I said.” Another similarly said: “I watched a lot of liberals celebrate that Toby Keith had cancer. I’ve seen other liberals pray for him. But the negative overshadows the positive. Sad. I think it’s a social media thing.” One user shared, “Toby Keith might make horrible music, but what he *really* sucked at is not getting cancer.”

The next tweeted, “I hope my first thoughts upon hearing that Toby Keith has cancer will be forgiven.” Meanwhile, one person claimed, “I don’t like Toby Keith and can’t stand his narrow mindedness but he still is a man and I wish him all the best. Cancer is no joke and I really hope he makes a full recovery.” One user added, “Toby Keith has cancer. How is Twitter reacting? To discuss his politics. Just insane. Grab it. Some of you need to find some meaning in your life outside of politics.” And another concluded, “Why are people trying to canonize Toby Keith just because he has f***ing cancer?! You can miss me with that f**king bulls**t.”

“Can’t take his bigotry, but he’s still human”
