Scott Baio reunites with 'Happy Days' cast at Erin Moran's memorial after controversial comments

Scott Baio and his fellow former "Happy Days" cast members are coming together to honor their late friend, Erin Moran, despite Baio's controversial comments about her death.

The actor took to Facebook on Wednesday to share a photo of himself honoring Moran with Ron Howard, Anson Williams, Cathy Silvers, Marion Ross and Don Most at Moran's memorial service.

Moran, who played Joanie on "Happy Days," died in April after a months-long battle with cancer. After the heartbreaking news broke, Baio, who played Moran's boyfriend on the show, made controversial allegations about her cause of death during an appearance on "The Bernie & Sid Show."

"I'm OK, a little shocked but not completely shocked that this happened," he said at the time. "My thing is, I feel bad because her whole life, she was troubled, could never find what made her happy and content. For me, you do drugs or drink, you're gonna die. I'm sorry if that's cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself."

His comments faced near-immediate backlash online, including from Moran's brother, Tony.

"Get on your knees and pray I never run into you," he tweeted a day after Baio's comments.

"Your wife contacts me? Not u? You f--king scumbag coward piece of sh-t," he said in another tweet, after Baio's wife apologized on his behalf.

Clearly, Moran's former co-stars aren't harboring bad blood with Baio, despite his comments, as the actors all look happy to be in one another's company in the emotional aftermath of Moran's death.
