Jim Carrey Remembers Bob Saget And His ‘Wonderfully Warped Comic Mind’

Late Sunday night, the “Dark Crimes” actor paid tribute to his late friend on Twitter, tweeting, “Beautiful Bob Saget passed away today at 65. He had a big, big heart and a wonderfully warped comic mind. He gave the world a lot of joy and lived his life for goodness’ sake. :’^}”
However, not every fan saw the compliment in “warped comedic mind.”
“Wtf is wrong with Jim Carrey? ‘A warped comedic mind?’ Bob was a fantastic comic, who played an incredible role as ‘America’s Dad.’ He was one of the most multi-faceted individuals in the game,” one fan wrote. “Sending to his family. He will be so missed. Fu[ll] House defined my childhood.”
“I think Jim says that out of complete admiration and from him it’s a compliment,” another fan replied. “Bob’s stand-up was pretty raw.”
“That’s hilarious!” another fan commented. “Thanks for sharing! Jim is right, Bob was warped. Though imagine trying to balance his sense of self with that of such a good guy/parent on ‘Full House’?! Must’ve been challenging. Something had to give… Our girls loved that show – he gave us a collective hero.”
Fans Pile On Commiserations: ‘Please Stay Safe And Take Care’
Fans continued to add to the condolences, and some expressed concern for the 59-year-old actor himself.
“I’m sure he liked your impersonation of him from ‘In Living Color,’ another fan joked.
“What a beautiful soul,” another fan commented. “He will be missed terribly. Sending my sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones Rest in Eternal Paradise Sir. You were a wonderful, funny, loving, caring husband, father, son, brother, and uncle. On top of being America’s funny man.”
