Henry Rollins has apologized for the "F**k Suicide" column he wrote for L.A. Weekly, in which he criticized Robin Williams’ decision to take his own life.
"That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me,” Rollins wrote in a note posted to his website on Friday.
“It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.” Rollins went on to say that he has suffered from depression and that he should have known better than to say the things he did. "I get so mad when I hear that someone has died this way,” he continued. “Not mad at them, mad at whatever got them there and that no one magically appeared to somehow save them."
In the original column, Rollins criticized Williams for traumatizing his three children by committing suicide.
