There was very sad news in the entertainment world Tuesday as “Growing Pains” star, songwriter, and TV host Alan Thicke passed away at age 69. Thicke reportedly suffered a heart attack while playing hockey with his teenage son and was rushed to the hospital.
So sad is the passing of Alan Thicke. Such a good husband, father, brother, and friend. He will be deeply missed. Rest in peace dear Alan.

I'm sad beyond words that Alan Thicke has passed away. I've known you since I was 8 years old and so glad I had the pleasure of working with you again so recently on Fuller House. You were a part of my family and hockey family. You will be greatly missed. ❤️ My heart hurts.
I'm so sad to hear about the passing of Alan Thicke. RIP Alan. ?

Most people would likely agree that 2016 has worn out its welcome, but could we please agree also that there’s life beyond politics, or at least there should be. We never thought we’d be the ones to request a safe space, but actress Lisa Edelstein proved that some people can’t give it a rest, even in a wish to rest in peace.
RIP Alan Thicke. Seems like everyone is checking out before the Trumpacolypse.

At least you could use his death for a lame joke. https://t.co/9V2eXldfbF

@LisaEdelstein WTF is wrong with you people? You need help…

@LisaEdelstein Absolutely insensitive and unnecessary. Someone's father, husband & grandfather died today. Do not politicise it.

@LisaEdelstein Wow, unbelievably inappropriate !

@LisaEdelstein That was really cold hearted. No time to bring up politics.

What a vile thing to say. You're awful. @LisaEdelstein

@LisaEdelstein Would you want someone to say this about your family member?? You're cold as ice.

@LisaEdelstein You should be ashamed using someone's death as a political soapbox. No class. No respect.

@LisaEdelstein WHAT is wrong with you?? What a disrespectful statement. His family is mourning. He was beloved by many.

@LisaEdelstein What a sick unfeeling thing to say about the death of a good man. Used to be a fan. USED to.

@LisaEdelstein Better dust off your "I'm sorry if anyone was offended" non-apology. I'm sure your publicist is writing it now.
