The death of Robin Williams left Hollywood — and the world — stunned on Monday evening.
Following the news of his death, dozens of celebrities took to Twitter to mourn him.
Williams shot to fame in the late 1970s as the alien on “Mork and Mindy.” He conquered the big screen in comic films such as “Good Morning, Vietnam” and “Mrs. Doubtfire,” but he won his Academy Award in a serious role — as the therapist in “Good Will Hunting.”
He was pronounced dead shortly after noon at his Tiburon, Calif. home.

Very sad, very upset, very glad I did not have to hear about this though Twitter. Probably going to be taking some time off it for a while.
