The word is remembering actor and comedian Robin Williams, who died Monday night from an apparent suicide.

Former WWE heavyweight champion and movie star The Rock, also known as Dwayne Johnson, tweeted this about Williams:

President Barack Obama issued a statement about Williams’ death:
“Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit,” Obama said in a statement, referring to Williams’ role in “Mork & Mindy.”

“He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most — from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.”

Williams was 63. Read more celebrity tweets on Williams here:
