I know he had his recent troubles, which were well publicized, but I grew up with Diff’rent Strokes, and well, this shit just dumped me. To me, he was always one of those people in showbusiness you secretly wished would get his life sorted out, a new show or something that didn’t demean him in some bullshit post-modern faux-reality manner. Anyway – he died about 30 minutes ago, life support was switched off. He hadn’t regained consciousness after suffering an intracranial hemorrhage from a fall earlier this week.
Rest in peace, wee man.
