John Stamos took to Twitter on Sunday to complain about the omission of Bob Saget’s name from the memoriam segment at The Tony Awards, hoping his fans will echo his concern.

Stamos began expressing his discontent hours before the awards ceremony aired.

He played the role of Man in Chair in Broadway’s “The Drowsy Chaperone,” and held the role of Pastor Greg in “Hand to God,” according to Broadway World.

Stamos issued a second tweet, and gave his late friend the recognition he felt he deserved by boasting Saget’s Broadway success to his 1.6 million twitter followers. “Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God,” Stamos said. “Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing! Do the right thing!” Stamos tweeted.

He went on to declare how beloved Saget was, and how much he enjoyed his contributions to the Broadway stage.

“Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him,” Stamos said. (RELATED: Pamela Anderson Dominates On Broadway)

After highlighting Saget’s Broadway success, Stamos encouraged fans to join him in ensuring The Broadway League was aware of their error.

“Let’s make some noise about this everyone,” Stamos said in a tweet.

Stamos concluded his twitter thread by sending “love and good wishes” to Ariana DeBose and Julianne Hough, the hosts of the Tony Awards, as well as to his friend Darren Criss, and shouted out to all the “well-deserved nominees.”

Bob Saget died Jan. 9 from head trauma at the age of 65, according to RollingStone.
