The viewer wrote, “Eugene Levy was such a gift. It’s so sad to watch knowing he is no longer here.”
Twitter users immediately reacted to the post, with one joking, “@danjlevy You may want to sit down for this.”
The social media user deleted the original tweet and apologized directly to Dan for the faux pas. “@danjlevy I’m sooo sorry! I thought he had passed last year,” the fan wrote. “Everything has been such a blur the last year. I’m happy to know he’s fine. I’m so embarrassed.”
A second tweet continued, “Sorry all I seriously thought he had passed. I’m glad I am wrong. I was sitting here watching the show super sad.” Dan has yet to respond to her apology note.
One Twitter user guessed that the incorrect tweet probably gave Dan a “Minor heart attack,” prompting the original poster to say, “I feel horrible” about the “honest mistake.”
