[Scott] Baio told the radio hosts. “I’m saddened by what happened. I don’t know if it was drugs that killed her, I read one report said it might have been and I hope it … I don’t know what I hope. It’s what it is. What can you do?”
“She was just an insecure human being and fell into this world of drugs and alcohol. Again, I don’t know if that’s what killed her, I’m sure it was a culmination of years and years of doing it that might have had something to do with it. She just never found her way,” he said, revealing that he had tried to get her help many years ago.

I agree, Scott Baio is trash. He backpedaled from the drug comments but then tried to bring politics into it by blaming the left for the negative response to his irresponisble comments.
Erin Moran's castmates did get together for a memorial for her. Nice to see the gang all together. Marion Ross looks great.
Too bad Henry Winkler wasn't there.

It's interesting how celebrity deaths are "glossed over" .. i.e. "Oh well..God just wanted to bring him/her home."
In Erin's case, people who knew her, say that she abused her body with drugs and alcohol for decades. The cancer was a result of that.
Hiding this removes a "teaching moment" for those who could be heading down the same path of self-destruction, or possibly preventing others from going that route.
