Fox News’ Shep Smith calls Robin Williams a “coward” for committing suicide

As the world mourns the loss of Academy Award winner Robin Williams, Fox News anchor Shep Smith decided to vilify the man by calling him a “coward” in committing suicide.

Via Raw Story:

Fox News host Shepard Smith on Tuesday asserted that actor Robin Williams was “such a coward” for allegedly committing suicide. “One of the children he so loved, one of the children grieving tonight,” Smith said. “Because their father killed himself in a fit of depression.” “It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?” he continued.

“You could love three little things so much, watch them grow, they’re in their mid-20s, and they’re inspiring you, and exciting you, and they fill you up with the kind of joy you could never have known.”

“And yet, 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.”

I should note that Shep Smith has been rumored to be a gay man for years but can’t seem to find the “courage” to come out.

Talk about a “coward.”
