LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Comedian Lewis Black blasted radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh for his comments regarding actor Robin Williams’ suicide.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, Black called Limbaugh an “idiot” for making “cruel and stupid” statements about the politics behind Williams killing himself.
Limbaugh, speaking on his radio show Tuesday, said Williams’ likely thought process leading up to his suicide aligns with left-leaning political views.
“He had it all, but he had nothing,” Limbaugh said about Williams on Tuesday. “He made everybody else laugh but was miserable inside. I mean, it fits a certain picture, or a certain image that the left has.”
Black wrote: “F*** YOU Rush Limbaugh. Your statements were beyond cruel and stupid. They were intolerable. Enough is enough from you. You are an idiot. Don’t you ever demean the death of another human being. He was my friend. You disgust me.”
Limbaugh also said the leftist attitude is “one of pessimism and darkness, sadness — they’re never happy, are they? They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry.”
