In all honesty I can't agree with this. Yes it is very tragic. I'm a fan of the show and by all accounts he was a lovely person but if, and its a big if at this stage, his death was related to drugs then whilst clearly devastating for his friends and family, imo it cannot be compared to for example the death of a child. There has to be some recognition of some part of accountability otherwise we learn nothing.

Its not my intention to be offensive but having lost a brother younger than Corey in tragic circumstances things like this make me angry as I see it as such a bloody waste.

I understand he fought very hard against his demons and he and his family most certainly didn't deserve this but absolving him of any responsibility does him and others like him a disservice imo. Even if it makes one other person stop and think and not go down that road then its worth not brushing it under the carpet.
I dont think thats what they mean and I disagree anyway, I've also lost a brother younger than Corey in tragic circumstances. The devastation I felt was the same as my friend who lost her brother to drug abuse. The manner of the death isn't really relevant imo, the person is still dead and has left behind a huge hole and hell for their family to go through. Berating and blaming people for their own death isn't going to achieve anything. Do you honestly think people hooked on drugs stop and pay attention to that sort of thing, the death itself is more likely to have an impact rather than what people think of the dead person.
