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."

Shut up Todd. You've earned the right to not say anything else about anyone ever again for the rest of your pitiful life.

Um. Why did Philip Seymour get trashed after his death of a heroin overdose. Wasn't he 'sick' too? Robin Williams knew he was depressed..did his wife, his grown adult children, his manager, his friends, neighbors, anyone??? Bet everyone is sorry now...can't leech off the poor man. Suicide IS a selfish act. The person committing suicide is NOT thinking of those left behind.
