‘Glee”s Mark Saling and all the other celebrities who were awful in 2020
2020 just wasn’t a great year for most people. All around, it was a bummer year with the COVID-19 pandemic striking, countless celebrity deaths, the economy getting turned upside down, and much more. Plenty of celebrities caught some heat in 2020 for mistakes they made in the midst of “cancel culture”.
Since almost everyone was stuck at home and totally bored in 2020, it gave plenty of people enough free time to delve into past mistakes made by celebrities as well. One major example? Glee’s Mark Salling passed away in 2018, but in 2020, people who used to consider themselves fans of him still had some reflecting to do.
Glee’s Mark Salling
Everything hit the fan for Glee’s Mark Salling in 2018 when he was caught with inappropriate child content. After being accused of possession, he ended up pleading guilty and from there he decided he wanted to take his own life. Watching reruns of Glee feels a bit tainted now considering Mark Salling‘s actions before his death — and the nature of his death.
On Glee, Mark Salling played the role of Noah Puckerman, a rowdy & obnoxious football player who also loved to sing. In 2020, being stuck at home watching reruns of Glee would’ve been a lot more fun had the disturbing situation surrounding Mark Salling never happened.
