The Tony Awards went down Sunday night, and while the show was pretty great, Bob Saget was unfortunately left out of the In Memoriam tribute.

Bob's Full House co-star and close friend John Stamos tweeted his disappointment in the decision ahead of the show (People reports that he presumably found out during dress rehearsals), writing "Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of 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."

He added, Let’s make some noise about this everyone - and send our love and good wishes to the hosts @ArianaDeBose, @JulianneHough and my buddy @DarrenCriss and all the well-deserved nominees."

As John noted in his tweets, Bob Saget starred in The Drowsy Chaperone, his Broadway debut, in 2007. He also starred in Hand to God in 2015.

Reps from the Tony Awards don't appear to have addressed John's tweets, nor have they explained why Bob Saget wasn't included in their In Memoriam, but we'll update this article if that changes.
