Bob Saget Hurls Insults at Danielle Fishel Over Drug Story
Well, this certainly isn’t the Danny Tanner we remember.
Bob Saget, beloved for his role as the straight-laced Full House patriarch, is lashing out at Girl Meets World star Danielle Fishel online over a not-so-PG story she told about him in a recent interview with Maxim.
Danielle’s story, which appeared in the March issue of the men’s magazine, implied that Bob had shared some adult humor with her and some other TGIF stars on a plane when she was still a kid.
"We were trying to take a nap, and all of a sudden Bob Saget walks down the aisle, rips open our curtain, and shouts, 'Do you guys have any coke?!' Then he looks my dad in the eye, laughs, and closes the curtain,” she recalled.
In a statement to Maxim, Bob denied various parts of the story, while managing to get in some low blows at the diminutive star.
“What show was she on? 'Big Chest, Small Wonder'? That's the real size of her, by the way. She's kind of like Bilbo Baggins, very tiny," he wrote.
"So first off, I don't open curtains. That was a lie, because I don't do that. I knock on things. Also, there weren't separate compartments on the plane. Anyway, the whole thing was as simple as me going to the restroom and throwing out a one-liner. I was always making jokes; that's what I did. Yes, it did have a drug reference in it, but the joke was that her parents should protect this kid who was starring in a television show. It was just a funny thing, like a satiric moment of, 'What are we doing with our kids?' I wouldn't expect someone to understand it if they don't get that kind of humor."
Danielle retorted on Twitter, claiming that the magazine had cut off the end of her story.
“Maybe you should have printed what I said at the end 'we knew he was joking. It was funny.'"
