'Supernatural's' Jared Padalecki
The CW Star talks one of his fave episodes of S8.
Never to hold back on Twitter, Supernatural star Jared Padalecki took to Twitter following the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman yesterday.

Jared’s tweet got the actor in some hot water with fans and he ended up deleting the tweets and had to do some backtracking.

The deleted tweet read:

“‘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’.”

There was immediate backlash on Twitter which such responses like, mel ‏@melissaashleyyy added: “is anyone else as shocked as I am that jared padalecki said this bc wow.”

Jared posted a few more tweets to try and clarify what he was trying to say.

 

 

Padalecki was not the only one. Star Trek: The Next Generation star LeVar Burton was also in hot water for writing,

 

Think before you tweet people. Or better yet, don’t tweet at all.
