Henry Winkler may not have received the response he expected on Saturday after tweeting what appeared to be a call to unity.
“We are so divided as a country … only a catastrophic event that makes us dependent on each other again can bring us back together,” wrote the former “Fonzie” actor from “Happy Days”.
Twitter users soon reminded Winkler, 75, that the US and the rest of the world had already seen some disastrous events.
“I think it’s great that you are so idealistic,” wrote one Twitter user, “but over half a million Americans have died of Covid. If that doesn’t work, nothing will work.”

“The last one was 9/11”, another wrote. “I don’t think we should do that again.”
“What exactly do you want, a super volcano?” asked another. “We had a killer virus, bushfires that burned in Australia and the US. Huge heat waves, ice storms, mudslides, tsunamis, hurricanes, huge F5 tornadoes.”
Other respondents continued similarly.
But some expressed more sympathy for Winkler, saying they knew what the actor – who has a reputation for being one of Hollywood’s “nice guys” – was trying to represent.

“Henry Winkler is one of the nicest celebrities I’ve ever met,” wrote one fan. “A really good person. He means well with this tweet, so give him a break.”
