Actor and Trump supporter Scott Baio has gotten some harsh backlash over his comments following the death of his “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi” co-star Erin Moran. He blames it on his being an outspoken Trump supporter.
Baio stated that he was shocked and sadden after learning of Moran’s passing and during an interview on “The Bernie & Sid” show he reacted to media reports stating that Moran died of drug use.
Moran “likely died” of complications of stage 4 cancer, an autopsy revealed later Monday.
“I feel bad because her whole life she was troubled, could never find what made her happy and content, you know what I mean?” he told the radio hosts. “For me, you do drugs or drink, you’re gonna die. And I’m sorry if that’s cold, but… God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive, and you gotta take care of yourself. I’m sorry. You just have to, and I am saddened by what happened.
“And I don’t know if it was drugs that killed her,” he added quickly. “I read one report that it might have been. And I hope it – you know, I don’t know what I hope.”
