Jared Padalecki, the Supernatural actor, tweeted his thoughts about Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death by heroin overdose and sparked the ire of many on Twitter.

Jared Padalecki Slammed For Philip Seymour Hoffman Tweet

"'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,’” read Padalecki’s initial tweet on Sunday, the day that Hoffman was found dead in his New York City apartment.

Padalecki later deleted the controversial tweet, and followed it up with two posts to explain what he had meant – that Hoffman’s death was sad and addiction is real, but he doesn’t think of a drug overdose as a tragedy.

Padalecki’s wife Genevieve Padalecki, meanwhile, retweeted a picture of the late Oscar-winning actor that had the caption, “My heart is heavy! The best of us has come and gone. Oh sweet beast of a talent! Rest dear Phillip Seymour Hoffman.”

When Hoffman didn’t show to pick his children up on Sunday, his estranged partner Mimi O’Donnell sent over his friend, playwright David Katz, to check on him. Katz discovered Hoffman dead with a heroin-filled syringe still in his arm. Law enforcement officials are investigating who provided Hoffman with the drugs.
