After Pauley Perrette posted a heartfelt tribute to her late father on social media, NCIS star Brian Dietzen sent her a comforting message.
Pauley Perrette’s father, Paul, d1ed last year at the age of 85 after a battle with C0V1D 19. The former NCIS star has already made a number of Twitter posts commemorating his life over the past year, and her latest update drew a touching response from her old CBS colleague Brian Dietzen.
After her new Twitter post, the actress best known as Abby Sciuto was inundated with messages of support from fans and followers.
She took to social media on Thursday to pay tribute to her father, Paul, who d1ed from C0v1d a year ago.
“One year ago, my beloved dad d1ed of #C0v1d,” Pauley wrote.
The NCIS alum also expressed her displeasure with how the US handled certain aspects of the p4nd3mic.
“His political party told him it was a hoax, and like hundreds of thousands of others, they murd3red him with it,” she went on.
“There were no vaccines back then, just exhausted health-care workers and d3ad bodies everywhere.”
“And me, on a nurse’s cell phone, saying goodbye.”
Her heartfelt post drew hundreds of comments from her social media followers, who responded with sympathetic tributes of their own.
Brian, a long-running NCIS co-star, also expressed his condolences in the comments section.
“Breaks my heart,” wrote the Dr. Jimmy Palmer star. “Sending you [love heart emoji] and prayers, P.” (sic)
Thainá, Pauley’s fan, echoed Brian’s sentiment, saying, “I’m so sorry P! I’m sending you all of my love!
“I’m sure your Daddy was an amazing man who fought… it was a very difficult year…”
“I’m so sorry for your loss,” Mandy responded. I can only imagine how painful it had to be. Many blessings and good vibes to you.”
Following her father’s d3ath last year, Pauley and Brian both urged their followers to get vaccinated in order to aid in the fight against C0v1d.
“I WANT MORE #c0v1d #VACCINE,” she wrote. I’m vaxed, but I saw my father d1e at the hands of this cruel thief.”
Pauley then criticized the Republican Party’s response to the p4nd3mic, asking, “Why IS the #GOP k1ll1ng their OWN PARTY?” Daddy was a staunch Republican. He’s no longer alive!”
“ALL #GOP LEADERS ARE #vaxed!!!” You’re just pawns for them. They’re executing you! Think! “PLEASE GET #VAXED or you’ll have nothing left,” she claimed.
“I’m sorry, my friend,” Brian said, echoing her pro-vaccine sentiments. “I’m hoping for a lot more shots in arms.”
Pauley has since retired from acting after NCIS, with her final television appearance in the CBS sitcom Broke.
