The news broke (via Us Magazine) when Supernatural co-star Jim Beaver wrote in a post on Facebook that Collins was followed out of a restaurant in Minneapolis by three men, was beaten and robbed. The post also said that he sustained minor injuries with some stitches and a fat lip, but would still attend the convention. Beaver’s post was soon deleted, but not without fans noticing and taking to Twitter to share their support and worry for the actor. That’s when Collins was prompted to respond.
Hey guys! Thanks for all the well-wishes! Just want u to know I've just got some minor scrapes. I'm totally fine! Love u guys.— Misha Collins (@mishacollins) August 22, 2015
Collins did not elaborate any further on the matter of the mugging, so it is not clear exactly what happened. And since Beaver’s post was deleted, it seems as though Collins really doesn’t want the incident to be publicly shared. But, since the actor missed his Supernatural panel, obviously his fans were worried. And then when another Supernatural actor tweeted this, well then Twitter got extra involved.
Thank you for such an amazing panel fans!!! You are the best!! Let's have a thought for @mishacollins and give him all our love!!!!!— Sebastian Roché (@sebroche) August 22, 2015
Of course with the massive fandom Supernatural has created over the span of 10 seasons Twitter soon erupted with the hashtag #WeLoveYouMisha. And it sounds like everyone’s well wishes were much appreciated. Also, considering Collins’ remains in town for the convention, seems like he really is doing just fine.
