Oscar-winner Robin Williams, whose free-form comedy and adept impressions dazzled audiences for decades, has died in an apparent suicide. He was 63.

The Marin County Sheriff's Office says Williams was pronounced dead at his home in California on Monday. The sheriff's office says a preliminary investigation shows the cause of death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.

I just heard this on the news. I was quite shocked to hear that he died, but even more so after they mentioned it was a suicide.

I find it really sad when the world loses a great comedian.

I found it pretty hard to believe when I found out.
Such a shame...

He's not someone I would expect to commit suicide. He was always so happy and energetic. But I guess that's how it goes... I hope his family will be okay, I know he had a kid.

This sure brought a halt to my workout. From what I've read so far, he's been battling depression and substance abuse for some time after years of sobriety. Makes me worry about myself. His various roles touched many. He will be missed.


I once saw Saxton Hale jump a barbed fence on horse, strangle a bear, punch a shark in the face, sign a bill for congress, save a baby from a burning building, break a ninja's neck and still arrive to work on time...ten minutes early....

It's always terrible to hear when someone that makes people laugh and always seems so cheerful commits suicide. Just goes to show how shitty depression can be. Robin Williams was always someone I looked up to, and to hear that he succumbed to this sort of thing makes me incredibly sad. I hope his family is able to grieve in peace at the very least.

Just goes to show that no matter how cheerful someone seems on the outside, there can always been deep sadness on the inside.

 

He was a good man, and his family has my condolences.

I'm so shocked myself :c They say comedians are usually very sad people and this just proved it for me even more. So many good celebrities dying.

Hook, What Dreams May Come, Jumanji, Aladdin. All great movies that defined my childhood. It was stupid of me to think so, but I never thought I'd live to see this day.

 

Take a good rest, my good man. You deserve that much.

I keep typing up responses but I don't really know how to speak my thoughts on this coherently. Just, growing up without a father, that sort of had some sort of absence. But watching Robin Williams movies, I would often fantasize that he was my dad, and that made me feel better imagining it. He helped me through alot of my childhood and now this happens and this... bleh. This sucks.

I was shocked when I heard this. He was always able to make people happy with his comedy. I remember learning that he improved his lines during Dead Poets' Society in order to get genuine laughs out of the young actors around him. When he was shown playing Zelda with his daughter in the Ocarina of Time 3D commercials they looked so happy. RIP

I am so sad Robin died...I feel like someone really important to me just died even though he wasn't related to me. He meant so much, his whole person was just something that was just magical. Whenever I saw his face I was happy and now he's gone. I seriously wish I could've done something. It makes me feel bad knowing that I couldn't stop such a great man from killing himself...
