Smith Criticized For Describing Williams As Coward

Fox News' Shepard Smith is getting criticism after he speculated on air that Robin Williams may have been a coward following his death in an apparent suicide. Smith made the comment Monday night during coverage of the Academy Award-winning actor-comedian's death. He was speaking about how Williams' death — authorities said Tuesday he hung himself — might impact his three adult children. Critics took to social media on Facebook and Twitter after Smith said Williams' children were giving him so much joy, "and yet something inside you is so horrible or you're such a coward or whatever the reason that you decide you have to end it." Officials say the 63-year-old Williams died at his home in the San Francisco Bay area.
