Marlon Wayans: Antidepressants may have caused Robin Williams' suicide

Marlon Wayans spoke with Fusion Live host Yannis Pappas about the passing of Robin Williams.

One of the things that impressed Wayans the most about Williams’ work was his range as an actor.

“Robin was a great dramatic actor as well as a comedian,” Wayans said. “Great with improv, incredible at character, great at physicalization. The man lacked nothing.”

Wayans also had some thoughts about the manner of Williams’ death.

“I think there’s something in these medicines that people are taking for depression that’s making them depressed and making them commit suicide,” Wayans said. “I don’t think it’s depression. I think it’s chemical. … He was such a joyful dude.”
