TMZ just reported that Mark Salling passed away after an apparent suicide.

These are of course difficult circumstances after everything that happened in the past 2 years. Many people will obviously have an opinion about this, which you are welcome to express. But in any case,  since this is a fanforum, let's try to be respectful to the people who used to be fans of him or those who love the character he played on Glee. Regardless of what Mark did, this can't be an easy time for them.

I'm speechless. Just... speechless. I can't begin to process this. I was actually just about to go to bed when I found out. Now, I don't think I can sleep.

 

 

This felt appropriate though.

I'm sad for his family, who had already been put through a lot with what had been going on.

 

It must be difficult for the cast too, even if few were still in contact with him. I have no idea if they're gonna issue comments or not.

 

I don't know what else to say without appearing insensitive, but I'm sorry it had to come to this.

Some cast/crew have commented, none of the leads have done so yet as far as I can see but my twitter feed is a mess.

I have good memories of Puck/Mark. He did some terrible things but I'm sad it had to end like this. I hope his family is ok.

This is really sad. I loved his character on Glee quite a lot and even though who he was in real life wasn't like his character, I can still understand how hard it must be for his family and friends that have to go through this.

I cant say Im sorry, but I don't have it in me to celebrate anyones suicide.

This is exactly how i feel.
I wonder if any of the cast is even going to acknowledge it.

I don't really know what to say.  It's like this makes me sad, but I feel like I can't be sad?   I guess I just feel sad about his entire story, everything he did and how it ended.

And yeah what Mariana said...  Mark did something that was horrible and imo unforgivable,  but I can't celebrate anyone's suicide.

 

And like others have expressed, I feel very bad for his family too, they have gone through so much with him, this must be horrible. And also feel sad for the cast, this can't be easy for them, dealing with such conflicted feelings, while everyone is watching for their reaction like a hawk.

This is a tough one because there are a lot of conflicting feelings. Like others have said, Mark did some terrible things, but I also can't find it in me to celebrate someone committing suicide.

I do feel bad for his family, friends and former Glee cast mates. I imagine that if I was one of them I would feel conflicted. These are people who loved him and were friends with him and have memories with him. Even though he did some bad things, I'm sure it's hard to just forget the person you knew as a good person who was your friend or family member.

It's almost like the cast lost him three times: when Glee ended and everyone went their separate ways, when he was arrested, and now again when he killed himself.

I think I'm sad and disappointed over the situation and what it became, not necessarily for the person who passed away. But what disappoints me the most anytime something like this happens, is the media circus over the perpetrator and not the victims and child pornography as a whole. Mark's example isn't really going to change anything, sad as it is.

Also the internet randoms tweeting @ people who knew this man for years and have had to come to terms with who he became and are obviously struggling with their own unavoidable grief can seriously shut the fuck up

To be honest I'm Angry/Sad/confused I was huge fan of his on Glee, I stopped watching reruns awhile ago (Even though I have the complete series), because I'd feel so disgusted in the fact that I liked Puck/Mark. I just keep thinking why didn't he get help.
