Actor Gary Coleman passed away today as he was taken off life support following a brain hemorrhage. The star was 42 years old and best known for his work on the hit sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. As of late, however, the actor has faced legal troubles as well as assault disputes. Nevertheless, the actor has been in our homes for decades, and it is a tragedy that this happened.
Coleman is the second cast member of the series to pass away in the past few decades after Dana Plato committed suicide in 1999. This has since started the “Diff’rent Strokes Curse” as Coleman’s legal troubles became apparent along with co-star Todd Bridges’ drug problems surfacing.
