He then clarified: ‘For those of you that are confused, here’s the tldr: i’m talking about stock in gamestop. it was being killed off by financial companies, so a bunch of people decided to buy a s***load of the stock to drive up the price making those companies lose all their money for being d***s.’
It’s not known what Chandler’s surgery was for but he was hospitalised in 2019 after falling off a horse.
His mother, Gina-Ann Riggs, revealed at the time: ‘He was thrown off of his horse yesterday afternoon. Thank goodness he was wearing a helmet. He has a pretty bad concussion and is in a lot of pain but no broken bones!’
Chandler is best known for playing Carl Grimes in AMC’s The Walking Dead from 2010-2018. However since leaving the long-running zombie series, Chandler has focused on his making music.
