I blame his foster parents among other injustices toward Gary. I saw the VH1 special on kid star's parents, so I know that he got screwed out of his money from his foster parents. They got everything and he got nothing . Some star's parents can be such total jerks .
 
I rather be open-minded than be ignorant. This may sound harsh, but that's what I believe.

That sucks for him.

You'd think a show like MadTV (if it's even still on) or Saturday Night Live would like to add him for occasional appearances. I don't know how much he's willing to poke fun of himself, but I think it could be funny if he played a foul-mouthed version of his character on Diff'rent Strokes.

I think it's a classy act for him to show up for his fans when it sounds like he'd have every reason to call in sick.

I don't feel bad for him either. He's gone through some rough times, but he's learned to adapt. Even if it is mostly for novelty purposes he still has the ability to generate income in his chosen profession.

Odds are he probably was tired and probably sick; AFAIK he has chronic health problems related to nephritis (including requiring regular dialysis).

I do feel really bad for him. Consider: He does have talent and a knack for one-liners, but he's so recognizable and unique-looking, all he can really do is play himself. He tried stand-up and just doesn't seem to have the knack for it.
