Musical superstar Meatloaf died on Friday morning. He was 74.
After his death was announced on social media fans started remembering his work and specifically his acting turn in 1999’s “Fight Club” opposite Ed Norton and Brad Pitt where he played a loveable member of the narrator’s support groups and later Tyler Durden’s Project Mayhem.
After his character’s death the other members of Fight Club began chanting “his name was Robert Paulson”
And so did fans this morning.
You can read the tweets below. RIP Meatloaf.
He will forever be Bob from Fight Club to me. This scene got me every damn time.
