toddWhen former child star Todd Bridges (pictured) heard about Hollywood’s beloved comedic actor Robin Williams‘ tragic suicide on Monday, he called the act “very selfish” on his Twitter account. A few hours after making the controversial statement, Bridges’ comment raised the ire of many who loved the comedic actor.  The performer/director then backtracked and apologized for the insensitive timing of his words, according to TMZ.

Bridges, best known for his starring role on the hit eighties sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes,” took to Twitter to make his brash comment about Williams’ tragic ending that impacted so many throughout the world. Bridges went on to discuss how he managed to get through his own tumultuous life with the help of prayer.  The actor has battled drugs, alcohol, and arrests.

“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 and ask God to help you. That’s when prayer really comes into effect,” Bridges tweeted.

Williams, 63, was found dead at his California home, after allegedly committing suicide following a severe battle with depression.

After tweeting his statement about Williams, the 49-year-old TV veteran had a change of heart and tweeted the following series of apologies:

 

“I would like to apologize for the terrible timing of me comments that I made in reference to the untimely death of Robin Williams.”

“My best friend committed suicide a few months ago, and I was devastated to discover that he did not solicit my help.”

“I am sure that my attitude toward Williams’s death was a delayed reaction of my best friend’s death. Again, I apologize”

“Again, I apologize for my negative comment, and I ask forgiveness for any pain that I have caused”

 

Bridges, a word to the wise, loose lips sink careers!
