“I was fine until this. This did it,” one user commented.
“Sweet Jesus. I'm a full grown man. Almost 60. WTF is wrong with me? Can't believe how much this hurts,” another added.
Rickman, who played professor Severus Snape in the film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's book series, died on Thursday at the age of 69.
