Jared Padalecki has once again Tweeted himself into a bit of controversy.
A few weeks after saying Justin Bieber paid Lil Za to take a drug possession rap for him, the Supernatural star reacted to the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman by not showing all that much sympathy for the actor.
Hoffman was found with a needle in his arm on Friday and pronounced dead of a likely heroin overdose, with numerous celebrities mourning the late Oscar winner across various social platforms.
But Padalecki took issue those who described the incident as especially depressing.
“‘Sad’ isn’t the word I’d use to describe a 46-year-old man throwing his life away to drugs ‘Senseless’ is more like it. ‘Stupid.," the actor wrote.
He received a lot of backlash for remarks many deemed to be insensitive, later taking to Twitter and explaining himself a bit.
“I didnt mean PSH is stupid or that addiction isnt a reality. I simply meant I have a different definition of ‘tragedy," Padalecki wrote, adding:
“When I think ‘tragedy,’ I think of St Judes, of genocide, of articles I read in the paper. But, yes, either way, a death, is sad."
