“Hey, I’m checking in,” the former Blue’s Clues host said in the video shared on TikTok. “Tell me what’s going on.”

Nick Jr. fans who grew up watching Blue’s Clues might remember that in the interactive show, Burns asked questions and stayed silent as if listening to the viewers talking back to him.

After Burns nodded and listened to viewers, he said, “OK. Alright, well, it’s good to hear from you. You look great, by the way.”

The video has received over 6.3M views, and the post has received more than 41K comments. Burns has shared similar videos in the past, but this latest post dropped amid the revelations of the doc series, which hit differently after everything that was shared.

The biggest revelation was the former Drake & Josh star coming out and saying he was repeatedly sexually abused by Brian Peck. Brian Peck was arrested in 2003 on 11 charges, including sodomy, lewd act upon a child 14 or 15 by a person 10 years older, and oral copulation by anesthesia or controlled substance, but the minor was never named.
