Fox news anchor Shep Smith asked live on air Tuesday whether cowardice was behind Robin Williams’ apparent decision to end his life.

Shep has since apologized for the comment.

The anchor said: “And yet, something inside you is so horrible or you’re such a coward or whatever the reason that you decide that you have to end it. Robin Williams, at 63, did that today.”
