Former Glee star Mark Salling has passed away from a suspected suicide by hanging, and social media users are conflicted about how they should feel. Usually, fans are heartbroken when something like this happens to their beloved celebrities, but the late Mark’s rape accusations and child porn scandal are making it quite difficult for people to feel sad about his death.
Salling’s body was supposedly found hanging from a tree near a riverbed in Sundland today, January 30.
Last year, the 35-year-old pled guilty to the possession of no less than 50,000 images showing minors involved in inappropriate acts.
As fans of Glee definitely already know, he is not the only star from the show that lost his life.
But while when Cory Monteith died from a drug overdose, fans mourned and were deeply affected, in Salling’s case, they are a lot more unsure what to feel due to the very serious accusations against him.
One Twitter user wrote that: ‘I do not know what to feel after finding out Mark Salling has committed suicide. I loved him on Glee, but after he pled guilty for child pornography, I lost all respect for him.’
This one Tweet seems to sum up what most fans feel about Salling’s unexpected passing.
‘Idk how to feel about this Mark Salling thing ….. like … it’s sad but also he is fucking SCUM so…’ another read.
There were, however, people who felt more saddened about the passing and more forgiving of everything he’s done than anything else.
‘We should respect him for all the good things he has done and forgive all the bad ones. RIP Mark Salling.’
‘Rip Mark Salling… such a funny guy on glee, he made everyone laugh. Even when I saw him in person he made people smile. Going to miss you lots.’
Mark was awaiting his sentencing in the case and was expected to stay behind bars between 4 to 7 years.
Rest in Peace, Mark Salling!
