2. Williams’ death is being investigated as a suicide. Smith spoke about Williams’ children before the “coward” line.

“It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it? You could love three little things so much, watch them grow, they’re in their mid-twenties, and they’re inspiring you, and exciting you, and they fill you up with the kind of joy you could never have known. 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.”

3. In an interview with Mediaite, Smith apologized for what he said. “I would never presume to know anything about his private life. And if any of his family members and friends were to have seen me use the word ‘coward,’ I would be horrified.”
