0

A TikTok video has gone viral asking if the ongoing public grief for the late Australian conservationist Steve Irwin has gone too far.

TikTok user @sa99ymaggie flagged in her video how Steve’s fans love to leave gushing comments about the ‘Crocodile Hunter’ when his son Robert, 18, posts a video on social media.

These comments usually refer to how much Robert resembles his father, who died in 2006 when he was only two years old, or how much they miss him.

In Maggie’s video, which has been viewed more than four million times, she pretends to cry as she says, “Your father is dead…and I miss him.”

She says this sums up the “entire comment section” when Robert posts a video showing a “cool animal” at Australia Zoo.

There’s no denying that Maggie has a point: One look at Robert’s posts on TikTok and Instagram on any given day shows that the comments are full of references to Steve.

Social media users often comment on how much Robert (pictured with a crocodile in Australia Zoo) resembles his famous father, who died in a freak accident 16 years ago

Another said: ‘As great as Steve was, stop saying he’s dead. [Robert] just shows off animals; he doesn’t need the constant reminder.’

Steve Irwin, known to millions around the world as ‘the Crocodile Hunter’, died on September 4, 2006 at the age of 44 after being stabbed in the chest by a stingray while filming a documentary in Batt Reef, Queensland.
