Sorry, but this post doesn't start off on a happy note. It may not end on a happy note, either.

On Tuesday, Mark Salling, the actor known for playing Puck on Glee, was found dead by suicide, CNN reported. In recent years, Salling's name had become tainted after it was discovered that he was in possession of child pornography in 2015. Following his arrest, Salling pleaded guilty to possession and was scheduled for sentencing in March. The 35-year-old actor was facing four to seven years in prison.

After news of his suicide broke, Salling's former Glee co-star, Matthew Morrison, posted a photo of himself with Salling and Cory Monteith, another Glee co-star who died of an overdose in 2013. Morrison captioned the photo with angel emojis.

Others understood the place of sadness from which Morrison posted his image.

Tim Davis, who worked on the 'Glee' as a vocal arranger and coach, shared his thoughts.

The question of whether the people who commit crimes, as well as their family and friends, deserve sympathy is especially pertinent to Hollywood now given the number of men who have been outed for sexual harassment and violence.

Yep, I was right: no happy ending for this post.
