I wish I was kidding.

This is seriously depressing, with lots of people suggesting he committed suicide. It's so sad and my family were sure upset by this news. He was very talented comedian and was such a rare person. My sympathies go out to his family.

Today is a dark day for the comedy world and the world as a whole. He brought a lot of joy to an awful lot of people.

Lots of people are sharing their stories of encountering Robin Williams. I never got the chance to meet him, but my uncle did, so I'll repost his story here.

I met Robin Williams once. I was at a technology show and he was apparently staying in the same hotel. We ascended an elevator together, he to his (I presume) suite and me to a vendor's con-suite. When we reached my floor the doors refused to open and we both simultaneously broke into an "open the pod doors please Hal" improv moment. I'm not sure I realized who he was until I exited the elevator but we shared a laugh and an honest grin. I like to think he was relieved to share a moment without being a "star".


Good night, Vietnam.

It's been confirmed that Williams hung himself.

Lord knows that this is depressing enough. Even more depressing is that he could have sought help.

Robin Williams' daughter forced off Twitter after internet trolls post fake photograph claiming to be her dead father

Very painful experience for Robin's daughter that the Internet trolls on Twitter stirred it up.

It is truly a sad occurrence, his humor inspired a number of things I write.

Depression is an awful thing.... I wish they had better means to treat it.

Ugh. Something tragic happens and the first thing two people do is mess around with those most affected. I'm fine if people did not like Robin Williams, but that crosses the 'Seriously Not Cool At All' line.
