Padalecki really has a valid point ! If someone choose to do drugs and throw both his life and his family’s away , Yes It’s just stupid !
Jared just said what majority was thinking about and that’s very brave of him !

# 2

While its a sad thing for the family to go through Jared was right, the only thing wrong with his comments is possibly the timing

# 3

Jared, should be quiet & not draw attention to this negative feedback of a death. A death no matter who it is, should be respected. THe delivery & timing is wrong.. nothing else matters at this point.

# 4

I usually love Jared but that tweet was beyond disrespectful. He clearly doesn’t know anything about addiction and what he said was plain insensitive.

# 5

^ also who is he to decide what is tragic & isn’t? Everyone who truly loved his see this as tragic. I mean Padelecki’s comments aren’t sympathetic to the families & loved ones involved.

# 6

First off, I think PSH himself was ashamed to have a drug addiction as it was hardly in the spotlight. I didn’t even know he had one until recently. He was sober for 23 years so it’s not like he was doing drugs all the time and actively trying to get better. Something happened and he relapsed. And then here’s some guy from some TV show who makes a insensitive remark about it which will probably fuel other drug addicts further into embarrassment and not seek help.

# 7

I do believe that people doing drugs are very stupid . Why did they start this sh¨t anyway ?
HOWEVER AS I previously said in another post . I still think that Jared should stop tweeting constantly in general espacially when someon’s death ( another famous actor is involved ) , I love him and respect him . But sometimes there is no need to say this kind of things

# 8

But he has a point , heroine ? is like a wish death !

He’s right. Hoffman WAS stupid. He was dumb, dumb, dumb to be playing with heroin. And he left three little kids without a father. Thoughtless, selfish and just plain dumb of him.

Why is stupid to say the truth? Jared have a point.How can you be sooooo stupid to take drugs,when you know that will kill you?

No, he’s not right. None of you know what led PSH to use drugs. He was a great person and a brilliant actor. This is a sad moment not only to his family, friends and fans, but also to the film industry. Jared will never be close to what PSH was.

I AGREE WITH HIM 100%

While he may be right that drug use is stupid and senseless his phrasing was horrible. Also his refusal to acknowledge that while senseless, it is still TRAGIC that people can be slaves to their addiction and awful consequences occur, was just down right insensitive and cruel. People aren’t perfect and who knows what pain, or horrible incident led to their drug use. Maybe it was just a bad decision. But then now having a disease and being unable to shake it is a tragedy, dying from that IS a tragedy. Its awful and its painful for everyone involved. Jared is clearly ignorant of this fact.
I hope PSH is resting in peace because only he knows what he suffered in this life being unable to conquer that addiction, and I hope Jared never experiences a tragedy of losing someone to addiction. I also hope that people learn from this, famous or not.

Yes Jareds comment may have been in bad taste and timing but hes saying what all of us were thinking. As a father and husband himself he knows what PSH has left behined. He had an addiction, so what? Dont you think that his young children would have given him some incentive to get off and stay off the ****? Obviously not because he ditched plans with his kids to get on Herion. It is sad for the industry and for his family and friends but his act was incredibly selfish.
People need to get off Jarpads back and realise that he is speaking the gods honest truth that mosy people are too afraid to say. Much worse has been said about other in their deaths and no one flipped their **** as much as this.

he is right. it’s not a tragedy. it’s from a person being stupid and not seeking help for his addiction.

I don’t see the sense in vilifying the guy for speaking the truth. If you die fr drug overdose or you kill yourself, I consider it senseless and stupid and I don’t care how great you are at your job. why wasn’t something about life worth living for. I don’t know who he is but amen for being real.

Why do people smoke when it’s well known that stuff will kill you. Why does anyone do ‘stupid’ things. We may not know why they do it, but everyone knows what it’s like to struggle, to go through hardship, to be pressured, to find any way they can to deal and cope. So who are we to judge. But maybe in Jared’s world everything is perfect which is why all he can do is play some pretty boy on some pretty boy show.

Can some really not see that once you’re an addict or once you’re hit by depression, it’s very real to THEM that life isn’t worth living? Talk about ignorance. Instead of judging based on your life experience, imagine the pain that someone must feel to get to the point of not caring if they live or die, of not seeing a way out. Maybe they’re wrong, maybe they cause pain, maybe they could have found help. But it’s sad that they didn’t see a way out, it’s sad that they were their own worst enemy. Why judge a person that is obviously in a hell all their own? Be grateful you don’t live that way and hope that people still living that do find the help they need on time.
I think the point is that Jared was judging instead of saying DRUGS are horrible, people get help. Who has the right to measure a tragedy? Be it by one’s own hand or a random accident. People are hurt in it’s wake. Life and people are fragile, no need to throw mud on people already in pain. Have some empathy and compassion.

okay, his timing could have been better, but he has a point.
Drugs ruin lives. PSH was an amazing actor and I loved his work, but drugs… not smart. he leaves behind a family. So I can see where Jared’s coming from.

I don’t agree with what he said but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I know alot of people do agree with him but they were smart enough to not tweet it. A man did past away and even if he thought it was stupid of him to use drugs he should have at least showed his respect to Hoffman and his family and friends.

Jared is right. It was not an accident! Drug use is intentional. I’m sure he was smart enough to know that by using drugs sooner or later there’s a great chance he will wind up dead.
So yes, it was stupid.

I’m guessing that his family has many emotions right now, and that anger is among them. While addiction is powerful, and horrible, this is a man with resources, and options. Anyone who has been left behind by an addict or a suicide is left to wonder why they did not count enough. YOu can feel deep empathy and sympathy for someone, and anger at their choices at the same time.

@yo:
drug use is intentional but that doesnt mean that it was not an accident, maybe he thought he could handle the amount he did and was wrong… that my friend is indeed an accident, yes a stupid accident but an accident none the less.

Everyone has a choice make. Before u take that first drink, that first shot in the arm, or that first snort… there’s that moment where u have a choice to say no. I agree with Jared, was a stupid choice that he made especially with all the resources that were available to him. Now because of his choice, his remaining family are the ones who suffer. My condolences go out to his family and friends. Its a sad thing that has happened but it was a stupid choice that was made on his part. People need to quit being so blind. People need to take responsibility for their actions. Good and bad. I get where you’re coming from Jared, and what you meant, and it sure wasn’t disrespect.

Now is not the time to be high-minded in making your point about drugs, etc. Now is the time to respect his family — and let him rest in peace. Keep the dumb remarks for Web sites like TMZ — the vultures of humanity.
