Fox News reporter Shepard Smith reports on the untimely death of actor/comedian Robin Williams and calls him a COWARD on national TV!! Twitter explodes with backlash. Watch here.

“Something inside you is so horrible or you’re such a coward or whatever the reason that you decide that you have to end it. Robin Williams, at 63, did that today,” Shepard Smith said during his breaking news telecast. He goes on to tell of how Robin used to smoke weed in the 70's. STFU!

You can call Robin many things but a coward is NOT one of them!! Depression is a mental illness and no one should be disgraced because of it. Especially not Robin Williams!! Twitter reacts:

The Fox reporter later apologized with this lame statement:

“I would just like to apologize to the end of the earth to anyone who might think that I meant to openly call him a ‘coward,’” he said.

Robin Williams was one of my favorite entertainers of all time! From his role as a radio DJ in 'Good morning Vietnam' to 'Mrs Doubtfire" and countless memorial appearances on TV and the Silver screen. He had a twinkle in his eye that brought so much joy and laughter to the world.
