I actually agree with Levar Burton. I don't have much sympathy for individuals who die from drug addictions…I understand it's sad, but honestly, addictions are brought upon them. If you're going to try drugs or dabble in them, don't be surprised if you become addicted. People need to realize the consequences before they try stupid things. You're doing it to yourself. I can't feel too sorry for a guy who had three kids and was shooting up. Same goes for all the other celebs who felt the need to dabble in drugs (aka Corey Monteith, Amy Winehouse to name a couple). If you have an addiction, you do everything you need to do to get help.
Respect for Levar Burton. Shame and disrespect for people who glorify addicts like Philip Seymor Hoffman. Substance and drug addiction should never be glorified nor justified no matter how "great" or "talented" any addict is/was.
I also think it's extremely selfish of drug users to put their loved ones through all their crap. Addiction is an illness, true, but drug addiction (specifically) should never be justified. Like I said, people who dabble in drugs are playing with fire, and I can't show sympathy for that.
He's right. Good for him for not being pc about a drug related death. He wasted a great gift. And he put his addiction above his kids. There is no honor in that.
100% agreement with LeVar Burton!
I hope he doesn't apologize. I'm so tired of shaming people when they talk honestly about addiction.
I wonder what Burton had to say about his "sista" Whitney Houston being found in a fucking bathtub. Don't remember reading any "shade" there.
You are such a flipping HYPOCRITE Perez. You are "queen" of "throwing shade" at people but at actual inappropriate times. PSH is a loos, but he was stupid to fall back into his addiction after 23 years of sobriety. He had children to think of and apparently they were not as important as his addiciton or whatever was going on in his head and HE did not have the strength or ability or wherewithall to get help! FIFTY bags of heroine???? WTF - he KNEW he was in deep. It was a huge waste of talent. I have dealt with friends who died of overdoses and suicide. I know the pain it leaves behind. And no matter how much I loved those people in my life I still feel they were stupid and wasteful to let it all go without asking for or seekign help.
It might be a little disrespectful to speak like that of someone who has recently passed and undoubtedly left many people in mourning. Yes, drug addiction is a disease and unfortunately PSH couldn't beat it. But that doesn't justify that he put drugs over his kids, his career, and his life.
It is a shame a talented person as PSH took his own life (yes he did by doing drugs). We all have stress and demons, the difference is how we deal with them. Unfortunaltey he didn't understand the repercussions of the damage his actions left for his kids to live with for the rest of thier lives. I feel for the children, shame on you PSH for the damage you left behind.
Umm. Sorry Perez, no one agrees with you. Your just a celebrity pushing devil. Get over yourself. The rest of the world sure seems to be. He was a drug addict junky who put his drugs above his own children. Thats the only sad thing about it.
I agree with LeVar, PSH wasted a gift. No one would give a shit if he wasn't famous, people die everyday from overdoses.
Lea Michele "I'm so devastated by this; Cory…Cory Who?"
Burton was just trying to be funny for his main demographic. He's a fuckin' nobody who is now skimming the bottom of the barrel for a quick head turn.
Re: Vincent – You are an ignorant ass. This has nothing to do with race, and certainly nothing to do with Whitney Houston, so why do you feel the need to take there? A drug addict is a drug addict. He seems to feel strongly about the issue, so I'm sure he probably feel the same way, regardless of the person involved.
Good actor, but a junkie is a junkie. When you go out with a needle in your arm there are no questions left to answer. He had the opportunity to stay clean, he chose not to. People die everyday from ODs. When they go all you apologists say "good riddance" , but when it is one of your "elite" it's all oh what a shame.
Re: Nrchlk – I have to agree with you to a certain extent since I lost my brother at age 52 to heart attack my sister and I are convinced was brought on by his addiction to crystal meth. PSH was incredibly talented, shame to lose such a talent.
Re: Nrchlk – Ignorance at it's best. Do you realize that many people with addiction problems did not INTENTIONALLY try drugs just to "have a good time"? Millions of people develop drug addiction by being prescribed pills by a doctor, and before they even realize what happened their bodies have become completely addicted to the drugs. It is not as if every damn addict becomes an addict by going to a party and shooting up and snorting coke. Many many people become addicts through INNOCENT beginnings. Not to mention, you'd be friggin addict with or without drugs. If you didn't take drugs you'd over eat, starve, cut, have an OCD habit, gamble etc. Addiction is an INTERNAL DISORDER. The EXTERNAL behaviors are the SYMPTOMS of an internal medical disorder. Why do people not get this?
Ps for once can I go on a damn topic on these forums without the comments all being addressed to PEREZ? It is so beyond annoying that in EVERY SINGLE TOPIC I click on, the comments are addressed to Perez and have nothing to do with the subject itself. If you hated him so much your ass wouldn't have signed up to his site and be posting on it daily. Yeah you're showing him! Giving him more money by giving his page traffic. Get lost.

Who the hell is Levar Burton?
In the comments section here for Levar and in another publication about Jared's comment, it seems the majority posting AGREE that PSH death was not a tragedy. To echo how Jared put it, a tragedy is something like an earthquake; not someone intentionally injecting poison into themselves and dying from it. I've dealt with addiction and know how strong the appeal is to keep on doing what your doing regardless of your intellect telling you it's stupid, it's reckless, it's crazy. I decided I didn't want to be "that guy" any longer and with some good solid help I got past it; but still have to work at it (going on 15 years). I understand the stressers that can cause a relapse. Still… it is not a tragedy.
To quote AA, "Sympathy is between shit and syphilis in the dictionary." (p 225) Addicts are selfish destroyers of self and everyone else they touch. Addiction is selfishness. PSH was a selfish guy. We all want to put him up on a pedestal because of his professional life, but at home he was a selfish dude, obviously, because addiction is as much a choice as is recovery.
Re: pauline – I realize not every single addiction starts with only wanting to "have a good time". And yes, there are numerous addictions out there, not just alcohol/drugs. But with any addiction, when it has become a serious problem, you do everything in your power to get help from others. If that means going to rehab a thousand times, then so be it. And how does anyone become hooked on heroin in the first place? I highly doubt that was something that "accidentally" happened. That seems self induced. I'm sorry but when you hear about all these celebs getting hooked on the hard shit and then "tragically" they die because of their selfish behavior, it's really hard to show sympathy. Especially when you hear he was surrounded by 65 bags of heroin and a needle sticking out of his arm….the guy had three kids to think about. But his selfish behavior was more important. He was very talented as an actor, but he made poor life choices.
I agree with Levar. What a shameful, disgraceful way to die - and he was supposed to have responsibility for 3 kids that day? Perhaps this was Divine intervention; God only knows what fate might have awaited the children while in his care. It's not like Hoffman's arm just accidentally fell on a needle at some legal drug testing facility, doctor's office, or hospital…No, he had his own personal drug den and he made a conscious decision for himself. Doing drugs and becoming an addict is NOT like unwittingly catching the flu.
When in Italy, its best to lounge in your bikini, right Lea Michele?
The Louder songstress has been making a statement with all the bootylicious bikini pics she's been sharing all over Instagram!
Lea has been spending a ton of time in the arms -- literally -- of her new boyfriend Matthew Paetz.
The adorable duo were spotted getting cuddly aboard a boat in Positano, Italy over the weekend! Lea and Matthew just couldn't keep their hands and lips off of each other!
There was seriously PDA for days!
They're packing as much vacation and alone time together as they can before Lea gets super busy with Glee and her second album!
We can't think of a better way to spend the summer than with a seXXXy boy toy on a boat in Italy!
