Prior to the event, Stamos tweeted that he was “disappointed” that Saget was left out.
“Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be REMOVED from the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him,” Stamos tweeted.
He added, “Let’s make some noise about everyone – and send our love and best wishes to hosts @ArianaDeBose, @JulianneHough and my mate @DarrenCriss and all the well-deserved nominees.”
The segment featured a performance by Billy Porter.
The Tonys’ website included Saget’s name, along with a message: “The Tony Awards join the entire theater community in remembering the friends and colleagues who have left us over the past few months. The names of some of those who worked on Broadway are listed below and are always in our hearts.
Saget died in January at the age of 65.
