"Degrassi" Fans Say Goodbye to J.T.

"Degrassi" Fans Say Goodbye to J.T.

The kids of "Degrassi: The Next Generation" have never had it easy, with a steady string of absent fathers, Internet stalkers, pregnancies, senseless shootings, drug overdoses, and the like. But the most recent episode went one step further by killing off lovable goofball J.T. Yorke, whom longtime fans will remember as the skinny kid who beat people up with his school mascot costume.

Now "Degrassi" watchers are in mourning — and judging by the dozens of memorials that have shown up on YouTube recently, some are taking the loss of J.T. rather hard.

That episode was so sad. I cried. He was good character. Sucks they killed him off. Cant wait to see future episodes and see how it all plays out with the other characters and their grieving. Oh....LaylaCams....I think Liberty put the baby up for adoption.

Laluna, these kids from their rival school stabbed him after a party! He was on his way to tell whats-her-name that he still loved her and he was walking to the car and they stabbed him in the back. :cry: I have a question, didn't they have a kid together? Him and the one girl. So where's the baby at? Did something happen to it? Or she gave it up for adoption?
