There is no need to give any perspective. A death of any person is equally devastating, be it a young child or a young man dying of an accidental OD. I would bet, that Cory's loved ones would appreciate, if they would be able to grieve out of the public eye. The paparazzi will hound Lea to get the first pictures of her out and about.

As for Cory, no matter how he died, he was a good man. I've heard tens of stories of him going out of his way to help out other people. In fan meetings he has wiated with some fans for their parents to pick them up, given lifts to people without lifts, , he has been praised by everyone around him about what a wonderful person he was.

Just because he was unable to kick his addiction (and he actually really tried) which he picked up when he was still a child (13-14), and perhaps died due to the addiction makes his death no less tragic. There is no need to call people out, when they are shocked over his death, he and his personality touched many people during his short life, of course people are going to react.
Very well said.

We don't know how or why he died yet.
In my earlier post I did say 'if and its a big if'.

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.
If you want to bring awareness about the harms of drugs etc
into the discussion, there are ways to do it. Many celebs have actually done it on twitter. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are ones to come to my mind. Discussion about this is always good.

However there is no need to bring innocent children into the discussion, or make it seem like Cory's death was less drastic and tragic than other deaths just because of the way he did die. Death and loss can never be compared, and doing so when someone has died, is just inconsiderate and cruel.

Isn't there someone else he was seeing who's very prominent in the public eye, and who'll probably never come forward after the handlers got involved the last time around.

Shame they can't express their grieving.
What on Earth are you referring to? Please explain.!!!

Feel so Sad for Lea, his family and everyone who knew him. By all accounts he was a lovely man.

Why do people feel the need to state they never watched Glee or didn't like it.

The number of times I have heard 'I don't like Glee but RIP Corey' If you hated Glee don't offer your condolences as thats all he is was really known for.

I'm actually surprised Cory's death has affected me the way it has. I just feel sad everytime I see a picture of him... I don't know... there's just something lovely about him that makes me feel a bit emotional..

By the way, his last postings on twitter are just perfect for him - "what the crap is Sharknado. Oh, IT'S A SHARK TORNADO".

Nothing else to say that hasn't already been said. Just, rest in peace Cory.

Excuse me, I didnt bring children into this first you did.

My posts were neither inconsiderate or cruel. Although grief is not a game of oneupmanship I suspect most people would find the death of a child more tragic than that of an addict and that is why I disagreed with your comment. It does not mean that I am not saddened by this awful turn of events.

What a load of old tosh.

I've never watched Glee but I have worked with people with addiction and I am very sad to read he (by the looks of things) has finally succumbed whether through starting again or his body being weakened by years of abuse. I also feel for his family and girlfriend who will go through a range of emotions including wishing they'd been with him, wondering if they could have done more along with their grief. So RIP Cory, I hope you have finally found some peace.

And so far there has been no confirmation that this was the death of an addict. In fact, at the moment, the initial tests have discovered no cause of death and so further toxicology and autopsy investigations are being carried out.
In addition, Vancouver Police spokesman Sergeant Randy Fincham has said the following: "Police see bad drugs in the city on occasion and officers recently noted two teenagers died of overdoses as a result, but there’s nothing to indicate Monteith’s death was due to illicit drug use"

^Usually when it is an overdose like some are assuming, there is normally mention of the pills or drugs that were found there. When Heath Ledger died for example this was the case. There has been no mention of this with Cory, so my gut says it wasn't. That doesn't mean it wasn't obviously, just that what we've been told, like you posted, doesn't suggest that it was.

Why do people feel the need to state they never watched Glee or didn't like it.

Get off your high horse. People are allowed to feel sad about a young person dying, whether they'd seen the show or not, or even if they didn't like it. It's possible to realise that an actor is a nice person but not like the TV show they were on.

Most people would consider the death of a child worse than the death of a grown-up full stop - it's all about how much life you got to experience before you died. You don't necessarily have to be doing drugs for you choices to have led to your death as a grown-up either.

There is one hell of a disconnect between loving caring Cory and 'everything and anything' Cory. I wonder where the PR ended and the real person began, if anyone even knew that.

RIP

Well none of the other cast turned to drugs so i hardly think that is a excuse .


It is sad he could not beat his demons but nobody else is to blame but Cory. He chose this path!!
