The passing of Euphoria actor Angus Cloud has sparked a lot of discussion on social media.

Lisa Cloud posted a letter on Facebook on Friday thanking everyone for their support after her son, Angus Cloud, passed away on Monday in Oakland, his hometown.
“I … want you to know that although my son was in deep grief about his father’s untimely death from mesothelioma, his last day was a joyful one,” Lisa Cloud wrote. “He was reorganizing his room and placing items around the house with the intent to stay a while in the home he loved. He spoke of his intent to help provide for his sisters at college, and also help his mom emotionally and financially. He did not intend to end his life. When we hugged goodnight we said how much we loved each other and he said he would see me in the morning,” Lisa Cloud wrote. “I don’t know if or what he may have put in his body after that. I only know that he put his head on the desk where he was working on art projects, fell asleep, and didn’t wake up.”
Waves of condolences regarding the actor’s death have been surfacing on the internet including deeply felt ardent messages from the cast members. It is “abundantly clear that he did not intend to check out of this world,” the artist’s mother stated, she suggested that he might have “overdosed accidentally and tragically.”
“His struggles were real,” she commented, “He gave and received so much love and support to and from his tribe. His work in euphoria became a lightning rod for his generation and opened up a conversation about compassion, loyalty, acceptance, and love. … To honor his memory, please make random acts of kindness a part of your daily life.”
