After only hours after learning about Robin Williams’ passing, the internet responds in an overwhelming way.
Things change lots around here at justusgeeks.com, and when the world loses such an amazing icon as Robin Williams, we and the internet usually have lots to say.
After news broke about Williams’ passing, social media responded overwhelmingly with messages of love and support for the actor and his family.
Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, released a statement saying:
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope that the focus will not be on Robin’s death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
That’s exactly what we’re prepared to do the rest of this week; with this week’s episode, and subsequent content here at the website, we’ll celebrate Robin Williams as best as we can.
