From US President Joe Biden to The US Army, everyone mourned the demise of the legendary comedienne and beloved Hollywood star. Biden tweeted, "Betty White brought a smile to the lips of generations of Americans. She’s a cultural icon who will be sorely missed. Jill and I are thinking of her family and all those who loved her this New Year’s Eve.”

'Star Trek' actor George Takei shared: “Our national treasure, Betty White, has passed just before her 100th birthday. Our Sue Ann Nivens, our beloved Rose Nylund, has joined the heavens to delight the stars with her inimitable style, humor, and charm. A great loss to us all. We shall miss her dearly.”

“We are saddened by the passing of Betty White. Not only was she an amazing actress, she also served during WWII as a member of the American Women's Voluntary Services. A true legend on and off the screen,” the US Army wrote. “The world looks different now. She was great at defying expectation. She managed to grow very old and somehow, not old enough. We’ll miss you, Betty. Now you know the secret,” Ryan Reynolds added.

Meanwhile, producers of the film ‘Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration’ have said that a movie event planned for White’s birthday will not be canceled. In a statement to CNN, film producers Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein noted, “Our hearts mourn today with the passing of Betty White. During the many years we worked with her, we developed a great love and admiration for Betty as a person, and as an accomplished entertainer. We are thankful for the many decades of delight she brought to everyone. Betty always said she was the 'luckiest broad on two feet' to have had a career as long as she did. And honestly, we were the lucky ones to have had her for so long.”
