Comedian’s Twitter Rant Defending Depression And Demolishing A Troll Is A Must Read And Going Viral For Good

Andy Richter is a comedian and a late night show host.

He’s often seen sitting next to Conan O’Brien with famous celebrities, and making the audience laugh. A week ago, someone had the bright idea of telling people with depression that they’re choosing to feel like they want to die. Richter saw this post and it got a lot of raw emotion out of him.

His initial response had class.

But he later went on to clarify.

It was important to him that people understood.

He went off on a powerful twitter rant describing and defending those with depression.

It’s an illness that people do not choose.

Saying it’s a choice is blaming the victim.

Because depression is a sadistic killer.
