Bento et al. [Phys. Rev. E 91, 022105 (2015)PLEEE81539-375510.1103/PhysRevE.91.022105] state that the Tsallis entropy violates the third law of thermodynamics for q≤0 and 0<q<1. We show that their results are valid only for q≥1, since there is no distribution maximizing the Tsallis entropy for the intervals q≤0 and 0<q<1 compatible with the system energy expression.
