Please say it ain't so. Dear Lord, take any other childhood crush you want -- Leo DiCaprio or Johnny Depp -- and let us find out they're mean and incapable of laughing at small things. But please don't take my precious John Stamos! Universe, Uncle Jesse simply can't be a "mean girl"!
The former Full House star launched an epic and silly tirade on his Facebook page recently to eviscerate a poor Huffington Post blogger who wrote a really funny, and accurate, essay about how '80s and '90s "dumb" TV sitcoms filled her young brain with lies. Well, if there's one thing we've learned about John, it's this: he's hot. Oh, wait, we already knew that. No, it's this: he can be downright nasty if you dare suggest sitcoms aren't exactly ... realistic. How rude!
In her post, Annelia Alex takes aim at shows like Full House and Friends, arguing they made her believe her neighbor would be hot and think it was possible to live in a gorgeous apartment while scraping together tips from a waitressing job. She focused on Stamos' show, pointing out how the characters always stormed off when they were upset and that their loved ones always followed to offer comfort. And, obviously, that's more fiction than fact.
And even more obvious -- Alex is being sarcastic. Humorous. You know, not really taking herself all that seriously.
Well, try telling that to John. You could say her post made him a little upset. Here's the response he posted on his Facebook page:
annelia, if you hadn't watched those check mix shows like FULL HOUSE you wouldn't have been open minded and bright enough to write an article like you just did- on the other hand - don't blame the way your life turned out because of TGIF - if you're lucky enough to have kids - maybe you should have them watch re-runs of Breaking Bad- see how that turns out. i get what you're saying - i agree we did some silly unrealistic stuff-and maybe it's not the way everyday families are today - ALTHOUGH - more so now then when we made the show - meaning, more broken families, same sex parents- let's focus on that and not the unrealistic stuff - because the happiness that these shows have brought to peoples lives - i've felt that more first hand than i'm sure you have.... also - i bet more good than bad came out of those shows. sorry it didn't turn out that way for you annelia or you simply just weren't bright enough to take the good from what we did and laugh at the rest. JOHN STAMOS
Now, if I were Alex, I'd be doing a happy dance. John Stamos wrote to her! He even included her name! Who cares if it isn't exactly a love letter -- that isn't the point!
But she is apparently a bit surprised, and can you blame her? He makes somewhat of a good point, but then goes too far when he accuses her of not being "bright." That's just mean! She's entitled to her opinion. And John is entitled to his -- but come on now, John, a little less poison and a bit more of a sense of humor!
Do you think John Stamos did the right thing defending Full House and other sitcoms with his Facebook response?
