Thousands of fans turned to Twitter and other forms of social media Tuesday to express their condolences over the sudden passing of actor Alan Thicke, but one Hollywood actress instead chose to politicize the tragedy.

"RIP Alan Thicke. Seems like everyone is checking out before the Trumpacolypse," Lisa Edelstein, who is best known for her role in "House," tweeted just hours after the news broke Tuesday night that the 69-year-old actor was dead after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey.

As you might expect, other users quickly pounced on the "classless" tweet.

Thicke was best known for playing Jason Seaver on the 1980s sitcom "Growing Pains." He left behind his wife and three children, including singer Robin Thicke.

Thicke's youngest son, Carter Thicke, tweeted out a photo of him and his dad, who he called his "best friend" and "idol."
