A user named Carrie Bristol apparently felt that the clip was insensitive, given the circumstances, and thus, she expressed her feelings on the comment section of the post.

She wrote, "RIP Luke Perry! I’m not sure how you could do this so soon."

Bristol added,

I haven’t seen anything from you about his passing, maybe I’ve missed it somewhere. Pretty much everyone else had something to say. It’s just not the same without #LukePerry and it seems pointless without him. So sad.

The actor, who portrayed David Silver on the ‘90s Fox television series, kept his mind cool and replied,

Thank you for your words. Thank you to everyone for sticking up for me but it’s not necessary. Carrie, the passing of Luke is terrible. As was said by many, everyone grieves in different ways. If it’s too soon for you to attend what is meant to be a fun night for the fans then you don’t have to. Everyone should respect everyone’s process.
