"RIP to this tortured soul," Sutter wrote. He added #TBT for Throwback Thursday and attacked a photo of himself as Otto 'Big Otto' Delaney. He played the character on the acclaimed FX series.
The message shocked some fans, who became worried about his health.

The 57-year-old Sutter, who is married to Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal, is now working on a SOA spin-off for FX. Mayans MC will debut sometime this year, and will include actors who appeared on the original series. Sutter is serving as showrunner on the series, which will run 10 episodes for its first season.
Back in January, Sutter agreed to renew his overall deal with 20th Century Fox, Fox 21 and FX Productions. He was the first producer to stay with the studios after Fox was acquired by Disney.
Sutter earned three Emmy nominations for Sons of Anarchy, although they were all for music and lyrics. The show was beloved by critics and fans, and earned Sagal a Golden Globe in 2011. It ran from 2008 to 2011.
Sutter was also a writer on FX's The Shield and wrote the Jake Gyllenhaal boxing drama Southpaw. He also created the short-lived The Bastard Executioner for FX.
The writer also acted in all three FX series he was involved with.
