Rollins apologizes in a second LA Weekly article after a public backlash follows his remarks on Williams’s suicide:

I am deeply sorry, down to my marrow. I can’t think that means anything to you, but I am completely sorry. It is not of my interest to hurt anyone but I know I did.

‘Fuck suicide’

Rollins sharply criticizes Williams for his decision to take his life. The  singer writes in an LA Weekly column that he admired Williams’s abilities:

On more than one of my USO tours, Robin Williams had been on the same stage a few days before me. That’s all I needed to know about him. As far as I was concerned, he was a good man.

However, he says that suicide leaves family members behind:

I think as soon as you have children, you waive your right to take your own life…Fuck suicide. Life isn’t anything but what you make it.
