Ryan McHenry, the brilliant 27 year old behind everyone's favourite meme Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal sadly died this weekend following a long and brave battle with a rare type of bone cancer. In tribute to the young Scottish vine star, the actor joined the social network and posted a video of himself eating a bowl of cornflakes. "I feel very lucky to have been a part of his life in some small way", tweeted Gosling. As well as creating the hilarious meme - in which his namesake has been frowning, pouting, and generally rejecting cereal since 2013 - Ryan used his vine account to share a personal, honest and inspirational portrayal of his battle with cancer with his huge following.

My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry's family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way.

Ryan McHenry's family have set up a just giving page to raise money for cancer research.
