Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter on Johnny Lewis' death

Johnny Lewis, reportedly unhappy with Sons of Anarchy, left the FX show after its 2009 season. Earlier today, Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter posted the following on the social-media site Whosay:

“It was a tragic end for an extremely talented guy, who unfortunately had lost his way. I wish I could say that I was shocked by the events last night, but I was not. I am deeply sorry that an innocent life had to be thrown into his destructive path.”
