breaking news

0811_robin_williams_todd_bridges_tmzRobin Williams' death had been reported for just minutes, when "Diff'rent Strokes" star Todd Bridges bashed Williams for committing suicide ... calling it "a very selfish act."

Bridges moaned he's had a hard time too but didn't take what he implies is the easy way out:  "You don't think that my life has been hell and I've had so many ups and downs now. If I did that what am i showing my children that when it gets tough that's the way out No you gotta buckle down ask God to help you. That's when prayer really comes into effect."

Bridges did give him this, "Rest in peace Robin Williams I hope you found what you were looking for."

I am sure that my attitude toward Williams's death was a delayed reaction of my best friend's death. Again, I apologize for my negative comment, and I ask forgiveness for any pain that I have caused anyone."

TMZ sure has a way to add a dramatic twist to people's comments! I highly doubt he meant it with such insensitivity. I like TMZ, but I'm starting to question their reporting style.

Todd Bridges. STFU.

Bipolar disorder, manic depression is a mental health disorder that cannot be helped. Robin was not selfish, he was a brave man who fought with his own personal hell for over 50 years. He lost this latest battle and will be forever missed. He contributed so much to the world... something, Todd Bridges, that can't be said for other people.

He wasn't selfish. He was clearly mentally ill and sick.
