wrote that Williams, who is believed to have taken his own life following a long battle with depression, committed a “very selfish act”, adding, “You’re not thinking about your family your friends or your fans… Rest in peace Robin Williams I hope you found what you were looking for… I don’t care if you guys don’t like what I have to say, but it’s the truth america’s not doing enough to help people with depression.”
The tweets were later deleted and he went on to issue an apology, writing,
“I would like to apologise for the terrible timing of me comments (sic) that I made in reference to the untimely death of Robin Williams… My best friend committed suicide a few months ago, and I was devastated to discover that he did not solicit my help… I am sure that my attitude toward Williams’ death was a delayed reaction of my best friend’s death… Again, I apologise for my negative comment, and I ask forgiveness for any pain that I have caused.”
