One of the more notable things that happened on stage at the 2022 Oscars last night (and that’s truly saying something, considering one winner slapped a man) was when the Academy began their annual In Memoriam segment. What is usually a celebration of the lives that had been lost since the previous ceremony can sometimes turn into an online Academy shame fest, with people reaching peak levels of anger at the omission of certain famous faces from film. Almost every In Memoriam segment forgets a handful of deceased stars that objectively feel like they should be included, and this year was no exception. Like when the In Memoriam segment came to a close last night and had many at home wondering where Bob Saget’s face was?
At long last, a Florida judge has done no harm. According to CBS19, Bob Saget’s family has successfully persuaded a judge to issue a permanent injunction blocking the release of some of the records pertaining to his death. As we know, Bob died tragically in January at the age of 65 after being found unresponsive in an Orlando, Florida hotel room. Authorities determined that the cause of death was head trauma likely the result of an accidental backward fall and that no illicit drugs or alcohol were found in his system. Previously, a judge had granted his family a temporary injunction barring any “photos, video or other records related to the investigation into his death” from being made public. Yesterday’s ruling makes that ruling permanent.
It’s been just a little over a month since we lost one of America’s most beloved TV dads-slash-one of the world’s least family-friendly comedians, Bob Saget. 65-year-old Bob was found unresponsive in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida during his stand-up comedy tour, and initial reports stated that there were no drugs in his system and no suspicion of foul play. It was believed that Bob died of a heart attack or stroke. But his official cause of death has been released, and he actually died of head trauma.
In the last couple of weeks, we’ve lost several beloved celebrities, including Betty White, Sir Sidney Poitier, and Bob Saget. We still don’t know the official cause of death for Bob or Sidney, but yesterday it was reported that Betty suffered a mild stroke six days before her passing. There is absolutely no evidence that the stroke had anything to do with the COVID-19 vaccine. But that didn’t stop Hulk Hogan, M.D. (Meathead Dinosaur) from going on Facebook to declare that the vaccine was the reason Bob, Betty, and Sidney all died. Whoa whoa whoa! A racist/Trump-loving 68-year-old from Florida is an anti-vaxxer? And he shared his totally baseless theories on Facebook of all places?!
