Another Twitter user going by ReaganConservative66 tweeted at Baio and Winkler, respectfully claiming the Fonz owed Chachi an apology.

“I understand you are on opposite ends of the political spectrum but I believe both of you want unity for our country,” he wrote. “Scott in no way indicated it was funny. If you extrapolated that, it’s on you.”

Christine, who describes herself as a nurse and a vaccinated person that puts “people over politics,” tweeted at Baio to keep his cool.

“I loved watching you on tv. I don’t believe you’re a bad person despite the unusual post,” she wrote. “The real problem is that this virus has become politicized and it shouldn’t be. Viruses don’t care about politics. (Winkler) was very kind and fatherly in his reply. You are loved!”

Baio spent a good deal of his Tuesday bickering with online trolls claiming he hasn’t worked much in recent years. He responded to one person, “Chachi doesn’t need to work, s—head.”


Winkler ended his day by congratulating the Milwaukee Bucks for winning the NBA title. “Happy Days” was set in Milwaukee.

Winkler told Fox News in December that he considers Baio “family” and that “He has his political life and I have mine.”
