Lewis Black Slams Rush Limbaugh: ‘F*** You’ For Making Light of Robin Williams’ Death

Comedian and Daily Show contributor Lewis Black took to Facebook to slam radio host Rush Limbaugh for his remarks about Robin Williams’ death.

“F*CK YOU Rush Limbaugh,” Black wrote. “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.”

Earlier in the week, Limbaugh had said, “Robin Williams felt guilty that he was still alive while his three friends had died young and much earlier than he did,” referring to Williams’ friends John Belushi, Andy Kaufman, and Christopher Reeve.

“He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn’t,” Limbaugh asserted. “Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists in judging the country.”

In an op-ed for Time Magazine, Black paid tribute to Williams’ death and his time spent performing for the military on USO tours.

“It’s proof again that the good die young, and pricks live forever,” Black wrote. “He’s gonna be missed. There’s a hole, and it’s gonna take a long time to be filled.”

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda has also replied to the haters, writing, “As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too.”

    There used to be something called ” common decency” which, in this case means that there was a time when people would put aside their differences, and express sorrow over the the loss of another human being. Sometimes they would do this simply because it was “the right thing to do”. Another phrase that is lost on many people.

    I rarely react so vehemently to jerks, morons, and haters. The world is full of them. At the top of the list you will find Limbaugh. I remember him trying to defend himself in an op-ed, stating “My show is just for entertainment”. We are not entertained. Your hateful and hurtful words about Robin are unacceptable. You need to leave. You have overstayed your welcome and caused enough harm. Your venom over the years will come back to you. You are doomed. And while I am at it, Fox News needs to fire Shep Smith for alluding to Robin Williams “as a coward”, Apology or not, you cannot un-ring a bell.. Hate is taking down our country. It is up to each one of us to boycott the venom and just say no to those who are ruining our way of life, all for the sake of profit. I am outraged.
