Jared Padalecki was criticised after he told his 1.2 million Twitter followers that he thought Philip Seymour Hoffman's death was 'Stupid'.
In the initial tweet, which the 31 years old American actor has since deleted, Jared wrote: '"Sad" isn't the word I'd use to describe a 46 years old man throwing his life away to drugs. "Senseless" is move like it. "Stupid".
His words were met by abuse from Twitter users after his message was seen by million, following Hoffman's death on Sunday morning.

The twitter attack by his followers became hot, he then sent out another tweet:
Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, suffered a long battle with drug addiction, which was known to the public, and even checked himself into rehab in May last year.
The actor who was best known for a number of standout film roles was found dead at his home on Sunday following a suspected drug overdose.
Investigators found eight empty bags stamped with 'Ace of Spades' and 'Ace of Hearts' inside the actor's Manhattan apartment, according to officials.
May his soul RIP..
