Hollywood Mourns The Death Of Robin Williams: Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Others React



Social media exploded with an outpour of emotions and responses following the death of the late great, Robin Williams. The actor, who passed away on Monday of an apparent suicide, touched so many lives, including Hollywood’s very own.

Kevin Hart took to Twitter to express his heartache, writing:

“I’m speechless….RIP To a COMEDIC GENIUS!!!! Gone but not forgotten. #RIPROBINWILLIAMS

Rihanna tweeted: “Heartbreaking news about the late Robin Williams. May his soul now be at peace!”

Comedian and actor, Ben Stiller posted a lengthy message on Twitter, which read:

“A tweet cannot begin to describe the hugeness of Robin Williams heart and soul and talent. This is so sad. #RobinWilliams. OK, I’ll try. I met him when I was 13 and a huge fan and he was so kind and I watched him be kind to every fan i ever saw him with. And with other actors he was so generous and brilliant. He made everyone feel special and equal around him even though he was the genius. His heart was so big and even if you didn’t know him, what he gave everyone was that same spirit in his work, so we all felt it. His impact on the world was so positive. He did so much good for people. He made me and so many people laugh so hard for a very long time. And because they don’t really tweet, this message represents all the Stillers (Jerry, Anne and Amy) who Robin was a great friend to. xxxxx.”

Kim Kardashian tweeted:

“At first I didn’t believe it. But it’s true. RIP Robin Williams. The world will miss you dearly.”

Williams was found unconscious and not breathing inside his home in Northern Ca. on Monday just before noon … He was pronounced dead at 12:02 pm.

The assistant chief deputy coroner of Marin County said in a statement that the division “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.” A forensic examination is scheduled for Tuesday with subsequent toxicology testing to be conducted.

According to reports, the actor, who has battled drug and alcohol addiction in the past, checked himself into rehab just weeks before his apparent suicide. 


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
