Jared Padalecki removed his Tweet, (That was the right thing to do)

Then this Tweet from LeVar Burton ‏@levarburton Feb 3
I apologize for being insensitive regarding the death of PSH. No excuses, it was wrong! May he rest in Peace!

I’m not saying their comments were wrong, It was just the wrong time. Be respectful to the family and their pain, and to the fact that a life was lost. How did their comments help or make thing better in the grand scheme of things?

Tell Da Truth

Only trend sucking diletantes (ie, the Hollywood community and the entertainment journalists who hoover up their scraps) don’t understand that most folks think Padecki and Burton were spot on in their comments.

Which would be fine – except the ‘too gentle for the noise of this world’ bs, ‘tortured genius’ crapola has consequences…it romanticizes the selfish, stupid choice of a 46 year old man, with three children, elevating his emotional pain over their welfare, and wounding them for life with the consequences of his sh*tty decision.

Even though I agree with them, I don’t think that twitter is the right place (or time) to voice that opinion.

Drugs are bad. And yes, addiction is a self inflicted disease. We all understand (well apparently not everyone) what physical effects it has on your brain and thought process, but at some point, there has to be a line. YOU have a choice to start, and YOU have a choice to stop.

When do we draw the line in using a celebrity OD as a headline? I think it really glamourizes drugs, ODs are in the news constantly, so much so that it’s normal to hear about. Corey Monteith is from my hometown, and his addiction isn’t surprising. Vancouver is wealthy, so hard drugs are accessible. They always will be, but I think the media needs to be more responsible and use stories like this to educate people, like, take a stand and say that they were wrong in their choices, and stop making drugs seem so normal.

Ok, I’m just ranting now.

Both gentlemen are right. PSH did this too himself. I do not feel bad for drug users/ dealers/ enablers. They have done this to themselves and I could careless. I feel bad when innocent people become victims of crime, but like smokers they knowingly are killing themselves meaning they get no sympathy.

Trololol. LeVar Burton is best known for his stint on Reading Rainbow, not to mention.. oh that little seven year run of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the four films that went with it. Jared Padalecki’s movie career, while not huge, certainly isn’t something to wipe your nose on. And he’s also been doing Supernatural which is a show that has gone longer than most of it’s genre. What have you done? Nothing, clearly. Sounds as if someone is a bit jealous. Poor, sad you that one room in their houses are probably worth more than your entire net worth.

I’m so glad you said that in reply to @Lu.
PSH has left behind a terrible legacy for his children.
No matter what he has done in his career, people will always remember he killed himself with drugs!
Those poor children will be in therapy for years!

Sorry but they’re right! If PSH were your neighborhood junkie, would you treat his / her death as a tragedy or would you feel as if he / she had it coming? Same applies to Whitney, MJ, Cory Monteith (sp). These people have the resources to get help unlike the neighborhood junkie, yet, they refuse. RIP Sir…. but this could’ve been prevented.

You know what people want to shut everyone up for every opinion or belief they have.Peole should not be honored for doing these things to themselves.Drugs are an addiction but they made that choice.Everyone is entitled to their opinion and Jared and LeVar just want people to think about those choices they make.Philip was a fine actor but he left behind young children and he was separated form his wife so addiction took over his life.Next time for the ultra sensitive webbers Jared and LeVar could wait a bit after his death to post their opinions.

I think their opinions are correct, but it is also a bit tasteless to say those things on the day that someone dies. Have some respect and let people mourn first. Don’t immediately start the blame game. Yes, he made choices that eventually led to his death, but he was trying to get help for it too.

They are right to say the things they did. Maybe it’s too soon, but it’s the truth!
It’s not a tragedy, it’s sad that he was doing drugs when he knew his kids were waiting for him to pick them up.
I just hope when he figured out he was on his way out that he asked goo=d to forgive him of his sins.
If I was the mom of his kids I would be so pissed right now.
He loved drugs more then he loved his kids. Now that is a tragedy!

Give us a break Charlotte. It is a self inflected disease for people who don’t want to cope with life. Life is life, good or bad, we all have to live it. Drug addicts take the easy way out instead of facing reality. They are cowards. I know from personal experience and I was married to one for 18 years. Cowards, everyone of them, taking the easy way out. It’s stupid and they need to get with reality. Dumb drug addicts only think about themselves, not their families, especially their kids. They don’t think how it will effect them if something happens. Kids think it something they did to get dad into drugs, parents think that its something they didn’t do when it’s all the addicts selfishness and cowardly actions.

I guess they don’t know that being addicted to drugs is a disease and PSH didn’t necessarily chose to be an addict. They couldn’t be any more disrespectful ! Such idiots !

He made the choice to be become an addict, no one stuck a needle in his arm for him. A person with a disease, let’s say MS, does not have a choice. .

You’re an idiot. I work with addicts everyday and it’s a disease, plain and simple. Rage against the definition all you want, and be glad you don’t have it, but it’s a disease . . . and saying otherwise, just showcases your lack of education.

Being addicted is a sign of a weak mind and a feeble will. The moment you allow a substance to control your actions, your time and your goals, you have ceased to have the least control of your destiny. In this case, the pursuit of the greater high cost him his life. Why is it a sad thing when a personality like him falls prey to his addiction and it is not when a homeless person faces the same end? Think how much further he might have gone but for his addiction. Think about his family and how his weakness robbed them of a husband/father/son. This is indeed a senseless and stupid way to finish one’s days. While we should feel somewhat sorry for him, we should not lose sight of the real victims here; his family who came second to his vice.

More than three decades of research supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has proven that addiction is a complex brain disease characterized by compulsive, at times uncontrollable, drug craving, seeking, and use that persist despite potentially devastating consequences. Addiction is also a developmental disease; that is, it usually starts in adolescence or even childhood and can last a lifetime if untreated. Disagreements about the nature of addiction remain: namely, whether it reflects voluntary or involuntary behavior and whether it should be punished or treated as a health issue. Even though the first time a person takes a drug, it is often by choice—to achieve a pleasurable sensation or desired emotional state—we now know from a large body of research that this ability to choose can be affected by drugs. And when addiction takes hold in the brain, it disrupts a person’s ability to exert control over behavior— reflecting the compulsive nature of this disease

A disease is nt something u choose for urself. It happens. This is something that u invite for urself. Addiction is a disease. Not choosing to have one .

The thing is not to start in the first place!
I think Hollywood should take these actors and actresses to task.
They have a union and everything!
It’s time to let these stars know doing drugs won’t be tolerated.
Give them a chance to clean themselves up if they want to continue to get work!
Now another movie has to be re-worked because the actor has killed himself doing drugs.
What a PHUCKED UP! legacy to leave your kids.
Nobody will remember how he lived in 10 years, only how he died.

Dead dope heads.

They didn’t speak ill of the dead, they spoke the truth…there is a difference. I’m sick and tired of these dope heads being glorified. Plain and simply said they were doping when they were alive, they killed themselves with dope and now they are dead dope heads.

Wow- are you ever ignorant. It sure is easy for you to make blanket statements on something you know absolutely nothing about. Bet you wouldn’t be so hateful and feeble minded if something like this were to happen to one of your loved ones. Many many an addict has gotten addicted to opiates by their own physician due to an injury- so how was this their choice? It is a proven fact that opiates change the chemicals in your brain- it is a brain disease. That fact has been widely accepted in the medical world. There is a HUGE HUGE difference between recreational use and addiction. Drug addiction does not discriminate- I have met drug addicts who were completely brilliant, educated, popular, creative people before the disease took them. That being said, I’ve also known drug addicts who as people were complete losers. It’s people like you and some of the others on this site that allow addiction and over dose to continue to be a huge problem in this country. Try to think before you speak.

@It was a selfish choice he made regarding those he left behind, like three little children. He must have been binging and couldn’t stop until the drug stopped him.
