With the conversation around old tweets blowing up on the daily, comedian and actor Bob Saget has admitted there are things in his Twitter history that will bite him in the butt.
For Full House dad Bob, who is bringing his latest stand up show to Londons Leicester Square Theatre next month, hes fully aware there are things lurking in his feed from when Twitter first began.
Ive said some terrible things, but at the same time youll read a tweet from me and its about my lower region, he told Metro.co.uk Its crude. Its clinical, Im not going on about anybody else.
He added: If you go back in time, in history when Twitter started, there is stuff in there thats like “whoa you cant say that”, but Im not taking it down because its dated when its dated, its not naming anyone and its not misogynistic, its self-deprecating.
While others might be labelled racist or inflammatory, seems the guy who has the title of TVs favourite dad for his role on Full House, and its Emmy-nominated spin-off Fuller House, might just have some rather crude tweets in his feed about his nethers. Seems we can put down the pitchforks…
The 62-year-old told us that while his humour might reflect that of a nine-year-old boy who found out from his dad what was funny, he understands that there is a line between a joke and a more sinister comment.
Im sure something will bite me in the butt at some point, he said. In some cases as we know, people have done some terrible things and apologies are necessary and in some case criminal charges.
The truth of it is we need to check ourselves how we talk about women, about men, about everything; racism, I dont understand.
Name dropping his pal Dave Chappelle, he shared an anecdote about about the world gone mad: We were talking as human beings, thinking what is wrong with everybody? Why is there such hatred of anyone different? It makes no sense. Its a conversation…you never end it.
Speaking about his love of being onstage, the star, who has a career spanning 44 years knows his position is special; he calls his job a gift.
To be a comedian, we dont take it lightly, he continued. Its such a privilege and I hope the London audience feels the way about me that I already feel about them.
He feels an affinity with the Brits, admitting at times he wish he was from the UK.
He added on his trip to Blighty: I havent been excited to play a gig in a really long time.
