Henry Winkler may not have received the response he expected on Saturday after tweeting what appeared to be a call for unity.
“We are so divided as a country… only a cataclysmic event, which makes us depend on each other again, can bring us together,” wrote the former “Fonzie” actor from “Happy Days”.
Twitter users were quick to remind Winkler, 75, that the United States and the rest of the world had already seen some cataclysmic events.
“I love that you are so idealistic,” wrote one Twitter user, “but over half a million Americans have died from Covid. If that didn’t work, nothing will.”

“The last one was September 11”, another wrote. “I don’t think we should do it again.”
“What exactly do you want, a super volcano?” asked another. “We had a deadly virus, bushfires that swept through Australia and the United States. Huge heat waves, ice storms, mudslides, tsunamis, hurricanes, giant tornadoes F5. “
Other respondents continued in the same vein.
But some expressed more sympathy for Winkler, saying they knew how much the actor – who has a reputation for being one of Hollywood’s “cool guys” – was trying to show off.

“Henry Winkler is one of the cutest celebrities I have ever met,” wrote one fan. “A really good person. He’s okay with that tweet, so give him a break.”
