Former “Glee” actor Mark Salling was found dead of apparent suicide Tuesday. Last month, Salling had pleaded guilty to downloading 25,000 images of prepubescent children and was set to receive a sentence for his crime on March 7.

Police had been asked to perform a welfare check on Salling’s home, which led them to find his body at the shore of a nearby river, in a wooded area. According to TMZ, Salling “had been dead for some time.”

Salling’s death has caused some controversy on social media, with “Glee” producer Tim Davis tweeting the following:

Responses to Davis tweets have accused him of trying to deflect away from Salling’s crimes, and have called out him likening pedophilia to everyday sins.
