Bob Saget was one of Broadway’s biggest supporters. The late ‘Full House’ star supported live theater until his unfortunate death at the age of 65. One of his former co-stars is now calling out the industry’s biggest awards show for failing to include Saget during their ‘In Memoriam’ segment.
John Stamos expressed his disappointment with the Tony Awards for snubbing his old friend. Stamos pointed out that Saget was not only a huge patron and supporter of Broadway shows, but that he performed brilliantly in some of them. Stamos encouraged his followers to let the Tony Awards organizers know how they feel.
“Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing ! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him.
Let’s make some noise about this everyone – and send our love and good wishes to the hosts @ArianaDeBose, @JulianneHough and my buddy @DarrenCriss and all the well-deserved nominees.”
John Stamos and Bob Saget remained close friends after co-starring on the iconic sitcom. John even shared his final text exchange before Saget’s passing. Stamos was heartbroken by the news.
If anybody deserved a brief acknowledgment during the Tony Awards, it’s Bob Saget. John Stamos did his best to keep his friend’s memory alive. Despite the snub, fans of Bob’s work are doing their best by continuing to share their memories of the beloved comedian.
