BJ Novak's Chilling Tweet About Bob Saget Has Fans Talking

B.J. Novak: former star of "The Office," well-known BFF of Mindy Kaling, and ... potential psychic? Well, not exactly. But in the wake of "Full House" star Bob Saget's unexpected death, some are looking at one of Novak's recent tweets and finding it a little bit eerie.

Before we get to that, let's unpack the sad news about Saget. On the evening of January 9, TMZ first reported that the 65-year-old actor had passed away in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. The news was confirmed shortly thereafter by the Orange County Sheriff's Office, who tweeted about Saget being found unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene. "Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case," they added.

As is to be expected, Hollywood and beyond are now shook up about the news. Given his decades-long career in the TV industry — ranging from "Full House" to "Fuller House" to "America's Funniest Home Videos" to "How I Met Your Mother" to "Raising Dad" to "The Masked Singer" — Saget was a legend of sorts. And when many took to Twitter to mourn, Saget's name instantly became a trending topic. And one tweet, from six days prior, popped up near the top. That tweet belonged to Novak.

A fan called B.J. Novak's tweet 'hauntingly prescient'

Even though it's how many people got to know him, Bob Saget was so much more than just that TV dad on "Full House." The man who played Danny Tanner was a stand-up comedian (even performing a show the night before his death), and he'd recently started a podcast called "Bob Saget's Here for You." It's that very podcast where B.J. Novak was a guest recently, and Novak shared a snippet from the interview, along with the message, "I have always and will always love Bob Saget," in his now-viral tweet from January 3.

When Novak first posted that sentiment, one person responded on January 4, "I saw your tweet and thought maybe he died. What a relief to see it in context." Sadly, days later, that fan's worst nightmare came true. Another Twitter user summed up what we're all thinking: "Hauntingly prescient of BJN to make this statement 6 days ago. Never stop telling people of their importance to you. Tomorrow is NOT guaranteed." Someone else on Twitter echoed that last part, referring to Novak's tweet as "the definition of showing love while someone's still here."

Following the news of Saget's passing, Novak took to Twitter to simply share a broken heart emoji. While it may not seem like much, it's obvious exactly what he means — and as his other tweet made clear days prior, "The Office" star had lots of love for Saget.

Bob Saget's own tribute to Betty White also seems eerie in hindsight

It almost seems like celebrity deaths happen in multiples. Mere days after America's "Golden Girl" Betty White died, news broke that America's dad, Bob Saget, had also died. However, while White was an impressive 99 years old at the time of her death, Saget was a relatively young 65 years old. Eerily, Saget penned a touching tribute to White upon her death on Instagram, sharing a funny story about an encounter they had years ago, while also reminiscing about White's view of the afterlife.

"She always said the love of her life was her husband, Allen Ludden, who she lost in 1981. Well, if things work out by Betty's design— in the afterlife, they are reunited. I don't know what happens when we die, but if Betty says you get to be with the love of your life, then I happily defer to Betty on this," he wrote, adding, "My God we will miss you." It's all the more chilling now knowing that, days later, Saget would die, too. Since then, Saget's former co-stars have been remembering their beloved friend.

Bob Saget 's co-stars honor his life on social media

Since the news of Bob Saget's death broke in the media, fans have been taking to social media to remember the star, our beloved Danny Tanner from "Full House." Of course, that includes several of his former co-stars, with whom Saget formed close relationships. John Stamos was one of the first people to comment on the sudden news via Twitter. "I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby," he tweeted.

Andrea Barber, who played the Tanner family's neighbor Kimmy Gibbler, took to Instagram to remember her longtime co-star, too. "He had the biggest heart of anyone in Hollywood. He gave the biggest hugs," she wrote. "I am gutted that I will never be able to hug him again.

One of Saget's television daughters, Candace Cameron Bure, also penned a tweet to express her sorrow over the shocking news. "I don't know what to say," Bure wrote. "I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I've ever known in my life. I loved him so much." Ugh, our hearts!
