Recently, on Twitter, someone put an innocent question forward about which celebrity’s death hit them hard. Unknowingly this triggered the waterworks and people can’t stop.

Twitter was in agreement that Robin Williams’ death was by far the hardest celebrity death to get over.

The admirable comedian committed suicide on August 11, 2014.

Robin’s wife Susan said that her husband’s suicide reason was his debilitating brain disease called Lewy body dementia.

Fans remember Robin for all laughs he gave them. There’s no denying he was one of the best in the business.

The thread included other deaths that were hardest to accept like John Ritter, John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Prince, Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Paul Walker, and Princess Diana.

It’s always heartbreaking to remember it’s been almost six years since we lost the legendary comedian.


Robin’s death sent shockwaves all over the industry and among the fans. People outpoured their grief for the beloved comedian. The recent Twitter thread showed how much he is still missed. Fans’ floodgates opened when they recalled the most tragic death news they ever faced.
