Corey Feldman has been branded "insensitive" after joking that his late 'The Goonies' co-star Mary Ellen Trainor won't be able to appear in the sequel.
The 43-year-old actor - who played Clark "Mouth" Devereaux in the 1985 film - took to his Twitter account yesterday (09.06.15) after hearing that Trainor had passed away to joke that she won't be able to star in a possible sequel, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.
He wrote: "BREAKING NEWS: A VERY SAD DAY 4 GOONIES FANS! MARY ELLEN WHO PMAYED MIKEYS MOM HAS PASSED AWAY! SUCH A SWEET WOMAN AND A TALENTED ACTOR!
"THIS IS TERRIBLY SAD NEWS! MY HEART AND PRAYERS R WITH MARYS FAMILY, OUR CAST N CREW, AND THE SADNESS OF THIS LOSS! RIP: MARY ELLEN TRAINER.
"JUST 1 DAY AFTER THE 30th ANNI OF THE FILMS RELEASE! I GUESS THERE WONT B A SEQUEL 4 HER! WE BETTER GET MOVIN B4 WE LOSE ANY1 ELSE! (sic)"
Feldman - who also starred in 'The Lost Boys' and 'Stand By Me' as a teenager - later deleted his last post after the "insensitive" comment received a negative response.
Mary - who also appeared in all four 'Lethal Weapon' films - lost her battle with pancreatic cancer last month but the news wasn't confirmed until earlier this week.
