Over the weekend, Twitter users began sharing their stories of Bob Saget blocking them. Apparently, this was a common occurrence throughout the years, to which Saget offered an apology.

Citing excessive negativity as the culprit, Saget essentially says it’s nothing personal, even saying he’d block himself if he could. Oddly enough, he tagged the band Car Seat Headrest.

Notably, Car Seat Headrest released an album in 2010 which contained explicit lyrics about the “Full House” actor. Bob Saget often posts cheeky remarks, so his “sending my very best” likely acknowledges the band featuring him in their song.

Saget’s apology accrued so much attention he was a trending topic on Twitter this morning. Whether this apology will lead to less blocking in the immediate future remains to be seen.

When the 65-year-old actor isn’t blocking people on Twitter, he’s likely continuing his comedy tour, managing his new podcast, or serving as a board member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

Bob Saget’s Current Activities

Saget says he’s exhilarated to be back on stage but is disappointed and a bit fearful about saying things today due to them being taken out of context.

“It does hurt comedy because you have to worry about who has their phone out and who’s going to post it on the Internet and then everyone taking it out of context. They never hear that set up or the apology or maybe I never even said what they say I said. They misquote you or whatever. It didn’t come out of my mouth ever. And that’s just wrong. It’s hard to find the funny sometimes. But doing a show in front of a live audience is a very special thing.”

That aside, Saget also hosts his own podcast, Bob Saget’s Here for You. The podcast mixes both lighthearted banter with serious conversation. Launching in April this year, he’s booked celebrity guests like Jon Hamm, Jeff Garlin, Jay Pharoah, and Judd Apatow.

He’s also included a number listeners can call—562-600-0343—to leave messages he often includes in the program. An entire episode had him speaking with people COVID-19 affected.

Finally, as a member of the Scleroderma Research Foundation, Saget spends much of his time fundraising for the disease’s research. Scleroderma is a rare disease involving tightening of the skin and connective tissues, as well as hardening of the skin. It may also harm blood vessels, internal organs, and the digestive tract.

Saget’s sister, Gay, died of Scleroderma when she was 47 years old. In her honor, Saget hosts “Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine” fundraising events, which have raised a total of $53 million for scleroderma research.

Despite how he may come off on social media, Saget’s heart seems to be in the right place, especially with him contributing to Scleroderma research.
