Rocker Henry Rollins has issued a public apology for publishing a controversial article about suicide following the death of funnyman Robin Williams.
The former Black Flag frontman sparked outrage by writing a divisive column titled 'F**k Suicide' for the L.A. Weekly newspaper. In the essay, he criticized those who take their own life, including Williams, who killed himself earlier this month after a long battle with depression.
Rollins wrote of the star, "How in the hell could you possibly do that to your children? I don't care how well adjusted your kid might be, choosing to kill yourself, rather than to be there for that child, is every shade of awful, traumatic and confusing. I think as soon as you have children, you waive your right to take your own life."
However, Rollins has now issued an open letter, titled 'An Apology', through his website to say sorry for his comments.
