  • Yeah, let’s honor a drug addicted loser who was handed everything, money, fame, while people are dying every day from diseases such as cancer that they have no control over.

      • Or like getting skin cancer from never using sunblock or using tanning beds too much? I know that there are other ways of getting it that aren’t preventable but Heathers, if you’re gonna make an ignorant comment, we may as well point it out to you. You have control over not being a heartless you know what but apparently you don’t wish to control it.In the case of drug abusers their stupid decisions to start become something that they eventually don’t have control over. You do have control over having a heart. Try being human sometime. You may like it.

  • Repeat. How about ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, prostate cancer, bone cancer, bladder cancer or pancreatic cancer. How about the young girl Talia who represented Cover Girl, who battled cancer for six years, and died this morning at the ripe old age of 13?! That jag off chose to shoot crap into himself and drink on top of it. It was a CHOICE. Any person going through cancer treatment really doesn’t want to be shooting crap up their arm. And anyone who still tans in a tanning bed or goes outdoors for a prolonged period of time without wearing sunscreen gets no sympathy from me. Same goes for smokers. Really, in this day and age, there are so many treatments for smoking cessation. Most people I see smoking are trash anyways. So the guy from Glee is a heroin addict and alkie, his choice.

    • With all this judgment and angry emotion expended towards people who make different choices than you, you must think you’re pretty perfect and great. And you should know that you’re the only one who does think that.

  • Drug addiction and alchoholism are diseases. Yes, they start with choices, but Cory had tried to conquer his disease. Now matter how he died, anyone dying at 31 is tragic. It is insensitive and cruel to think otherwise. Perhaps Heathers, you should seek treatment for your own demons. Being that nasty isn’t healthy.

    • So well said Stephanie. I would say Heathers is one mean and judgemental person. I guess she is perfect!
