On Tuesday morning, news broke that “Glee” star Mark Salling tragically died of suicide. His sudden death came only a few short months before his sentencing in relation to child pornography charges.

Although many fans are sending their love and condolences, others are celebrating Salling’s suicide. Some feel that he “deserved” to die and “it’s a good thing” that the “pedophile” took his own life.

Several celebrities reacted to the so-called “celebrations” on social media including “Glee” vocal arranger Tim Davis and best-selling author Mandy Hale.

Davis responded, “Today we lost another [Glee] cast member. Yes, he committed crimes against children. Yes, it's horrific. But [Mark Salling] was a broken man, no doubt an abuse victim himself. I loved Mark, and am sad when I consider the devastation of his parents. PLEASE withhold your cruel comments.”

Davis later made it clear that he wasn’t “minimizing” the nature of Salling’s crime, but only trying to encourage “compassion.”

Hale mimicked Davis’s thoughts, “What Mark Salling was guilty of was disgusting...but suicide is never something to be celebrated, under any circumstance. I feel sick about his crimes against children but I also feel sick to see ppl gleefully touting his death.”
