A cousin and brother of the late actress Erin Moran ripped Scott Baio on April 25 for comments he made about his former "Happy Days" co-star's death.
Baio suggested during a radio interview on WABC on April 24 that Erin's death was tied to alcohol and drug abuse, notes RawStory.com.
"My thing is, I feel bad because her whole life, she was troubled, could never find what made her happy and content," he said. "For me, you do drugs or drink, you’re gonna die."
Baio was attacked on social media for his comments after authorities in Indiana said that Erin's cause of death was stage 4 cancer.
Baio told TMZ on April 25 he was being attacked by liberals for being a conservative: "I’m sure they’re attacking me because I’m a conservative. These people never attack the press for getting the story wrong about heroin. They attack me."
In response, Tony Moran, Erin's brother, ripped into Baio on Twitter on April 25: "#scottbaio. Get on your knees and pray I never run into you," and "Your wife contacts me? Not u? You f***ing scumbag coward piece of s***!"
Roy Moran, Erin's cousin, tweeted: "regardless of cause. that d*** head should have handled it way different. now he needs to get handled. rip cousin."
Tony followed his tweets up with another message to Baio on Facebook on April 25:
A special shout out to Scott Baio. I already went on Twitter about you. I hope it finds you. You and my lil sis had a very very brief fling. She dumped you. 2 reasons. 1. She told me that you were more like a lil girl and not a man. 2. She told me that you were tiny. Ya know. Barely a man in the man region. True story! Scott, I’d advise you to get on your knees and pray you never run into me.
Tony posted a second Facebook message about Baio on April 25:
Well guys. Guess what? I was contacted by Scott Baio's wife. His wife! F***ing coward! I've never met her. I do know the scumbag piece of s*** Scott Baio tho. He was a piece of s*** back then and still is. He had his wife contact me! Very apologetic and s***. Doesn't surprise me. It's too late you motherf****ing pieces of s***! Go back under the rock you crawled out from under. There isn't one word I want to hear you speak. Makes me sick to my stomach.
