A Schitt’s Creek fan is “so embarrassed” after mistakenly tweeting this beloved actor Eugene Levy –Who plays Rose Family patriarch Johnny – had passed away.
The viewer wrote: “Eugene Levy was such a gift. It is so sad to see that he is no longer here.”
Twitter users immediately responded to the post with a joke: “@danjlevy you might want to sit down for this.”
Eugene’s son and co-star, And LevyQuickly set the record on the fake claims and write: “News to me”.
The social media user deleted the original tweet and apologized directly to Dan for the faux pas. “@danjlevy I’m so sorry! I thought he passed away last year,” the fan wrote. “Last year everything was so blurry. I’m glad to know he’s fine. I’m so embarrassed. ”
A second tweet continued, “Sorry, I seriously thought it was over. Glad I’m wrong. I sat here and watched the show super sadly.” Dan has yet to reply to her apology note.
A Twitter user suggested that the fake tweet likely caused Dan a “minor heart attack,” which prompted the original poster to say, “I feel awful” about the “honest mistake”.
