Why It's Really Sad That Cory Monteith is Dead

7/14/2013 7:00 AM PDT, by Sarah Taylor
Obviously, it goes without saying that it's sad that Cory Monteith has passed away at the age of 31, because it's a loss for the humankind as a whole. Death is a part of life, but unexpected death always cuts deep, even if there's a history of prior significant issue, like substance abuse

As you all might already know, Cory Monteith passed away yesterday at a hotel in Canada, and there are multiple sources claiming that it might have been due to an overdose. Sources say that Cory had gone out with friends on Friday night, returned to the hotel alone in the early hours of Saturday morning, and was discovered by hotel staff when he'd missed check-out time.

In prior interviews, Cory admitted to previously being into "anything and everything, as much as possible," and had been in rehab by the age of 19 as well as earlier this year.  

Cory lived like everybody else. Cory's last tweet read, "what the crap is a Sharknado ... oh. IT'S A SHARK TORNADO." Cory was just likable. Relatable.

Cory is your son. Your brother. Your best friend. Your old college roomie. Your father, neighbor, or favorite grocery store bagger, and he maybe didn't get the help he needed, and now he's gone. That's what makes this thing the saddest.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm not emotionally ready for Lea Michele's statement. Not when she's been posting stuff like this:

If I ain't got nothing.. I got you. If I ain't got something I don't give a damn cause I got it with you.. And it's me and you... <3 #1+1

RIP, Cory.

What kind of sorry excuse for journalism is this? "Why it's sad someone died". Is that title a joke? Seriously, go back to waiting tables, you're a clown.

Yeah that is a pretty stupid title. So you're saying that if it weren't for all those things you just wrote it really wouldn't be that sad? The whole article read like the Facebook post of a teenaged girl with posters of boy bands and unicorns decorating her room. Honey, run these things by people before you post.

Wow..one of those degenerate bloggers from TMZ must have caught Harvey in the no no zone for why would ANYONE put real money behind something written by the person doing these stories. WORST TITLE EVER, reads like a kid that was forced to do a certain word count report at the last minute.

Terrible article. And terrible author as well to write it.

You're so very wrong. There is nothing wrong with the title OR the article itself. You're missing the point of the title and the article itself. This is a man who left this world way too soon due to drug addiction. The article wants the reader to realize that if it could happen to a young, popular actor who seemingly had 'everything', then it can happen to anyone. You may find it childish or stupid. But there is always the chance that even ONE person could read it and learn from it and get some help so they don't also become a statistic in the world of drugs. As the saying goes, if even one person is helped from this article, then it is more than worth it!

R.I.P. Cory. I was a 'Gleek' for a few years and enjoyed your work.

It's sad when ANYONE dies from ANY cause. We ALL have something to contribute to the world, whether we're famous or not. What's really sad is that if he did indeed die of an overdose, then this man was reckless, irresponsible, and self-destructive enough to knowingly ingest a potentially lethal substance. Yes addiction is a disease, but ingesting or shooting of snorting drugs is a CHOICE. It's time Hollywood and consumers stop enabling these people! Just because he was a nice guy on a preppy tv show does not make him any less accountable than someone like Sheen or Lohan. As long as these celebrities continue to be rewarded by Hollywood and consumers for being train-wrecks, then people will continue to die and children will grow up thinking these kind of sick lifestyle choices are OKAY!!!

I feel likle a lost a family member, having watched glee through the years. What a waste, you'll be missed Cory, RIP.

Why is the writing in this "thing" so abominable? "Passed away" is used twice. He died, he didn't pass anything or anyone. And "a loss for humankind"? I don't think most of the billions in China are wailing. And "Obviously, it goes without saying"? If it's obvious, it DOES go without saying, duh!

Speaking of repetition, "As you all might already know" -- why is "already" in there?

Then this "In prior interviews, Cory admitted to previously being..." No. In "prior" interviews? Prior to what? Leave prior out. Then "previously being"? Previous to what? Leave previous out.

Then this: "Cory lived like everybody else" -- what? Like every other singer/TV star/addict? Like every Third World female? Like every 31 year-old? What?

Then "Cory is your son." Well, no, Cory isn't anyone's son. He's dead.

He was not like my brother, my best friend, my college roommate, or my father. I have not in my life known anyone who did the things he did.

I never saw his TV show, either.

I don't think anyone is going to be ready for Lea Michele's first twit. I know I will be in tears when she does.

Whenever someone that young dies, it's sad. Especially when drugs are involved.

You People rule. Shred this article apart some more please! Crazy shocked that he died though. "Anything and Everything, as much as possible" horrible public statement (almost a gloat or a brag to me)and what an utter failure by the rehab facility!! If it does turn out to be drug related, YES I am waiting for some definitive answer's. Hoping to here, in fact, that he was totally sober and drug free, seem's like he deserves the dignity of more natural causes

How can you complain about this article? It says such nice things about Cory and why everyone loved him. Very sad.
