Only on rare occasions does Kanye West take to social media to express his feelings … The death of Robin Williams is one of those moments.
On Wednesday, the rapper posted a heartfelt message about the late actor, who died on Monday at the age of 63.
“Thank you Robin for all of the joy you brought the world,” he wrote, including an image of he and Williams holding up the Roc Nation sign.
Williams was found dead in his Northern Ca. home earlier this week of an apparent suicide. The chief deputy coroner for Marin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed during a press conference on Tuesday that the actor was found with a belt around his neck in the bedroom. “Preliminary results of the forensic examination revealed supporting physical signs that Mr. Williams’ life ended from asphyxia due to hanging,” Lt. Keith Boyd said.
“Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time,” his publicist wrote in a statement.
Williams had just signed on to reprise his role as Mrs. Doubtfire in the sequel to the hit 90’s flick.
