Henry Rollins has apologized for statements he made on suicide in the wake of Robin Williams’ death in a column for L.A. Weekly, with, he promises, a longer column addressing the comments coming in the paper next week.

In a post on his website titled “An Apology,” Rollins calls much of the outrage over his initial column “well placed” and that the fact that it hurt anyone “disgusts” him.

“I am not asking for a break from the caning, take me to the woodshed as much as you see fit,” he wrote. “If what I said has caused you to be done with me, I get it.”

He added: “I am deeply sorry. Down to my marrow. I can’t think that means anything to you, but I am. Completely sorry. It is not of my interest to hurt anyone but I know I did.”
