Robin Williams

Talks About Suicide

As Flawed Solution to Problems

Robin Williams talked about suicide as a misguided solution to temporary problems ... and the video will send chills down your spine.

The video is from the movie, "World's Greatest Dad," which Williams shot in 2009.  

Robin plays a dad struggling to help his son who has a fascination with autoerotica and accidentally dies by asphyxiation. Robin tries to cover up the manner of death by making it look like a suicide.

Robin was a great actor, but the words now have meaning that go far beyond a script.

All Celebrities are COWARD, they will talk about how sad His depression is, but the People in Hollywood who have the Power to Make some sort of Difference, will do nothing until the next celebrity dies, and they go through the same Ritual over again.

Hes ****in dead. Get over it. No matter what headlining news you have on him. Let the man be. He chose his story's ending. Stop judging him. Unless you've lived in his shoes. I hope whoever is writing these stories is haunted by Williams spirit. He'll pull your legs at night for not letting him rest in peace. Fat ****s

RIP Robin! Robin Williams was Bipolar, self medicating, with addictions. His Mental Illness killed him. Honor his memory and moments in your life. the joy and happiness you felt because of him by learning more about what can happen when your body chemistry wants to kill you.

When I heard this today, that scene in the film is one of the first things I thought about. Such horrible irony.
I wish he could see the comments on these posts, and see how loved he was.

His mental illness didnt kill him...he killed himself. I have no sympathy for this kind of stuff. What about the people working 2 and 3 jobs still struggling to make ends meet. Idc what people say its way more stressful to be a regular american than a celeb...if stress, anxiety and depression allow suicide to make you a martyr then half of america should be committing suicide. He shouldve gotten help and not taken the easy way out. Sheesh all this gushing about a man who had everything but decided that was too stressful and leaves his family behind makes me sick...and for alll you Christians he's burning in hell right now I hope your happy Jesus freaks.

Omg tmz. You guys really hit a new low. Enough stories about this poor guy. Go back to what you're good at- reporting about unknown d-list "celebrities" and porn stars. Ugh

Depression and bipolar disorder are virtually never diagnosed together in the same person at the same time. But it's even more unfortunate to think that tomorrow he could have had a "happy" day..

It's not TMZ's fault that Robin killed himself. If you don't like these stories, don't come to this website-
