U.S. TV star Bob Saget has raced to the defence of his former FULL HOUSE co-stars MARY-KATE and Ashley Olsen after comedians at his recent Comedy Central Roast turned on the twins.
Saget insists some of the gags about the sisters, who shared the role of his daughter Michelle on the sitcom, were a little offensive and he was upset the former child stars were poked fun at.
At one point funnyman Jeff Ross quipped, "Mary-Kate and Ashley were supposed to be here tonight, but they heard there was food," alluding to Mary-Kate Olsen's much-publicised battle with an eating disorder.
In a press statement, angry Saget says, "Anybody who talks about my TV kids - that upsets me. I am very protective. I love them very, very much."
The roast will air in the U.S. on 17 August (08).
