Actor calls out gossip blogs for exaggerating his recent surgery

Actor Freddie Prinze JR has hit out at gossip blogs for exaggerating his health issues after undergoing spinal surgery.

The Scooby-Doo star, who is married to actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, went under the knife on 20 November and spent his Thanksgiving holiday resting up at home.

The 38 year old shared a series of selfies of himself sporting a neck brace over the weekend and called himself "Robo-Bro, Brobot, the Iron Android" as he poked fun at his fragile condition, writing, "Learnin (sic) to walk again is like learning jiu-jitsu - 1 technique at a time."

However, Prinze Jr's posts caused some bloggers to play up his health woes and suggest he was unable to walk, prompting the actor to set the record straight for concerned fans.

In a series of Twitter messages, Prinze Jr writes: "Guys Im (sic) totally fine. Recovering great. No needs to get ur (your) info from entertainment 'news' sources who have no clue. Trust your homie (sic)."
