Rob Schneider Blames Parkinson's Drugs for Robin Williams' Death, "One of the Side Effects is Suicide"Submitted by happygirlapps on Mon, 08/18/2014 - 17:08
Actor Rob Schneider has blamed his good friend Robin Williams' tragic death on a drug he was taking to combat the early symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.
Schneider, 50, who has been friends with the Mrs. Doubtfire star for the past 20 years since they first met on Saturday Night Live, took to Twitter on Thursday, Aug. 14, to talk Parkinson's drugs and the role they played in his pal's death.
"Now that we can talk about it. #RobinWilliams was on a drug treating the symptoms of Parkinson's. One of the SIDE-EFFECTS IS SUICIDE!" he wrote.
"The Evil pharmaceutical industry ADMITS TO OVER 100,000 people in the USA DIE A YEAR FROM "PRESCRIPTION" DRUGS!! #RobinWilliams."
Schneider's outburst was hot on the heels of Williams' wife Susan Schneider's revelation that her husband had been suffering from the degenerative neurological disease, although he had not wanted his diagnosis to become public knowledge yet.
