I am a self proclaimed Gleek.. Finn (Cory Monteith) is/was one of my FAVORITE characters, and I LOVED him and Rachel (Lea Michelle) as a couple on the show, and in real life. I was very sad to hear about his passing, and am hopeful that he will prove the naysayers wrong, and he died of natural causes.. Anybody else in my boat?
Please DON’T bash him on this thread, that is not what this is for.
Pity he is gone.. He was quite handsome!

I was really hoping he had some time of premature heart problem caused by his prior drug use, or something that was just really unexpected. I’ve been checking the news nonstop since he passed waiting for the coroner’s report, and I can’t believe it was heroin/alcohol. What a sad situation. Everyone thought he was doing so much better, then he’s gone.

They just announced he died because he mixed alcohol and herion.

i was not a glee fan. however, i had hope that his death was not caused by an overdose. but, since it was drug related, i’m sad. drugs are a scary, sad thing. i just hope his family and friends can find peace with it. and maybe that it has some kind of effect on his fans- maybe this can prevent kids from doing drugs.
i also hope people allow his friends and family the time to grieve. there are a lot of crazy glee fans out there. i couldn’t even look at the twitter tags, cause of the people freaking out.

This is just really sad. Drug addiction is so horrible and such a hard thing to overcome. I feel so sad for his family and Lea. It’s terrible.

You never, ever know what demons someone is dealing with. I don’t ever judge when someone passes away from a drug overdose (famous or not), especially if they were trying to get help. If he was mixing, he most likely wasn’t attempting to OD; it was probably an accident.

Such a tragic waste.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, something must change within our entertainment industry. While it perhaps may not have saved him there is something to be said for people turning a blind eye, giving slaps on the wrist and providing for/or not saying no to their addict fueled requests and activities. It will just keep happening over and over again.

I cried a lot watching his videos. To think that Lea Michele was marrying him, and now she has nothing but a bunch of youtube videos… Imagine watching the episodes, she knows when they started kissing for real! :'( what a loss

I’m so sad. His death has really affected me. I think it’s because we are of similar age. Such a tragic loss and a waste. I feel so sorry for his loved ones left behind. They’ll have to live with his bad choices for the rest of their lives.

So sad. I’ve read that doing drugs after being in rehab is especially dangerous because you’re used to doing a certain amount, but your tolerance is gone so it’s much more powerful than expected.

@chaz: Did the coroner’s report come back already?
@bowsergirl: DAMNIT 🙁
@colorofmyheart: I would NEVER harrass a family.. I think it’s sad, they deserve to mourn.. I also agree though, I hope it teaches kids a lesson…
@MexiPino: Agreed 🙁
@ykyegbride: Probably.. I didn’t know they had released a report… I was REALLY hoping it was natural.. I can’t judge someone for something I don’t understand (addiction), no matter what way a person dies, it’s sad 🙁
@Treejewel19: I agree, but He was trying to get the help he needed, unfortunately (again I don’t truely understand addiction), it apparently got the best of him 🙁

@Treejewel19: I am really hoping Glee handles his death in a way that addresses drug problems. It would be risky, and they will probably do something safe, but I think it would be good for the kids who look up to the show and it’s actors to see.

@littlemisst08: I am interested to see how the show handles it. Glee has been known to take risks. I hope they consult his family and Lea and do have an episode focusing on drug addiction. It’s unfortunate that these kids get hooked on such a young age and battle it until one day it’s just too much.

@bowsergirl: Agreed. I’m interested as well. I love that show.
I hope they don’t necessarily tip toe around the idea…the last thing I want to see is them glamorizing the situation as they can do at times.

@bebero: I agree.. I couldn’t imagine
@Soon2BD-CBee: Yup.. I’m not *much* younger than him, so it’s kinda like a shock of reality that someone my age(ish) *CAN* die (not that I thought they couldn’t, but.. you know what I mean)
@lolot: I didn’t know that
@littlemisst08: They went head on wtih the gun in schools thing, I hope they take this on too, I think it would do TONS of good.
@bowsergirl: Yup, I agree! I love how glee handles the topics it does, with enough sensitivity to not offend, but enough UMPF to force it to the attention of it’s viewers
