The viewer wrote, “Eugene Levy is a gift. It’s so sad to see he’s no longer here.”
Twitter users immediately reacted to the post, with someone laughing, “@danjlevy You might want to sit down for it.”
The social media user deleted the original tweet and directly apologized to Dan for the faux pas. “@danjlevy I’m sooo sorry! I think he passed last year,” the fan said WROTE. “Everything went fuzzy last year. I’m glad I knew he was good. I’m embarrassed.”
A second tweet continued, “I’m sorry everyone I seriously thought he passed. I’m glad I made a mistake. I’m sitting here watching super sad.” Dan has yet to respond to his note of apology.
One Twitter user thought the wrong tweet might have given Dan a “Minor heart attack,” prompting the original poster to say, “I’m shocked to feel” about the “honest mistake.”
