On Twitter, people are already reacting to Perry’s untimely death:
There wasn't even any point in TRYING to be as brooding, cool and aspirationally fixable as Dylan McKay. Luke Perry embodied that, but was also a solid and versatile actor beyond that. This is so truly sad. #RIP https://t.co/5pDHk1f71F

It is perfectly normal and OK to be crying at Dylan McKay GIFs right now.

I refuse to believe Dylan McKay is no longer with us. To me, he’s still hanging out at the Peach Pit after catching some killer waves. RIP Luke Perry.
