It is clear he has a loyal fan based on the number of tweets that came through on his birthday!
Many fans honored Michael on his birthday by sharing their love for his character Marty McFly in Back to the Future. One fan wrote, “Michael J. Fox was my celebrity crush for all of my childhood. The fact that he has turned out to be an incredible man gives me hope that maybe my instincts are right, after all. Happy 60th Birthday, Alex P. Keaton.” Alex P. Keaton refers to his character on Family Ties.

Another wrote, “Happy Birthday to both Marty McFly and Michael J Fox. He’s one of my favorite celebrities who has yet to disappoint me. Happy 60th.” In the post, they shared a photo of Marty’s ID from the movie! What a great throwback.
One fan used his birthday as an opportunity to request that a remake of Back to the Future never be made. They said, “As it’s #MichaelJFox’s 60th birthday, let’s acknowledge that one of the few things we as a global community agree on is that ‘Back to the Future’ should never be remade, and that’s entirely because no one else can ever play Marty McFly. Happy Birthday @realmikefox ! We all love you.”
