After the news of Mark Salling’s death on Tuesday, Glee co-star Jane Lynch reacted saying she was “broken-hearted” by the 35-year-old’s tragic ending.

Jane Lynch and the other co-stars of Mark Salling in Glee reacted to his tragic death, announced on Tuesday, January 30. Lynch told TMZ that she was “broken-hearted” and that she remembered Salling “as the guy who made that who made that sweet video at the beginning of Glee when he was so happy to be part of this group”.

Iqbal Theba posted a series of tweets, remembering Mark. “His death is painful for me”, he tweeted. “Some of u might know him for only his flaws but I also knew him as someone who was great to work with & was kind to my kids.” He continued: “I truly wish he’d fought his demons &atoned himself & came out a winner.”

 

“It’s a painful loss, again. Two young actors, lost too soon. RIP #marksalling”, tweeted Paris Barclay, with a photo of Mark Salling and Corey Monteith.

 

Tim Davis first paid a tribute to Salling, then felt the need to clarify why his compassion for his colleague and the acknowledgement of the crimes he had been found guilty of can coexist.

“Let me be clear. Having compassion for #MarkSalling in no way minimizes his crimes, nor does it minimize the pain and devastation of the victims of those crimes”, the singer said. “I’m just saying stop adding to his family’s pain. This was their son. If you’re without sin, feel free to cast stones.”

 

Mark Salling’s body was found by the police hanging from a tree, hours after he has been eported missing. His death looks more like a suicide than anything else and his past behavior supports it. In August, 2017, before taking a plea bargain in his child pornography trial, Salling had attempted suicide by cutting his wrists.
