even though TMZ confirmed that Bob Saget had passed away, seemingly just hours before, Twitter user @cuacrawler1 tweeted, “Someone signed up with Bob Saget.” They continued by noting, “I’ve heard things that I want to be proven wrong.” The anonymous user then shared a screenshot purporting to be from Saget’s brother-in-law, wondering what the user had heard, and they simply replied that Saget was dead. Then another unidentified user contacted to confirm “what you heard is true.”
There have been hilarious hints about time travel but, although Crabcrawler seems to have got the scoop, as a user shown, “He was found dead at 4pm ET, which leaves plenty of time for this guy to post a tweet about clickbait. Maybe we should have a little more respect for Bob. He has family. He’s a great guy. Continue reading His life.” Furthermore, as another commenter Discuss, “It’s normal for big news of death to be quelled for hours. Someone leaked it.”
Elsewhere, users joked about whether Crabcrawler had anything to do with Saget’s death, or more likely that they worked in or near the hotel where his body was discovered (Crabcrawler sound to confirm this in a subsequent quote-tweet). In fact, according to one commenter, the original tweet was just posted following rumors that Saget had passed away. Suffice it to say, it could be good, or rather bad, timing rather than clairvoyance on behalf of this person.
