Radio DJ Giel Beelen (42) also considered the loss of the actor on Twitter, only he was confused with director Paul Verhoeven… “Rutger is no longer a phenomenon. Thanks for Spetters in particular. Youth sentiment. And all the other beautiful works of art that have made the world more beautiful. Rest in peace,” Giel wrote on his Twitter yesterday. Although his intentions were correct, he had added a photo of Paul Verhoeven. The DJ of Radio Veronica has since apologized in a new message. This time with the right photo. “Excuse my previous tweet. Something like a sunstroke. Super stupid,” he defends himself. “Sad news. Rutger Hauer a no longer living legend. Thank you for the beautiful things that delighted the world with you. That remains. Rest in peace and strength for the bereaved.” Rutger Hauer died on Friday at the age of 75 and was buried on Wednesday. He leaves behind an oeuvre of almost two hundred titles.
