This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Congrats, Chris Colfer!
And he had to be more than Gleeful to beat out the comedic talents of Modern Family's Jesse Tyler Ferguson, The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met Your Mother, and even his own Glee costar Darren Criss!
Wow, that's one talented heap of man comedy to climb to the top of! Mm, not a bad visual!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Chris' ever humble acceptance speech!
