William Shatner Can't Make it to Leonard Nimoy's Funeral, Celebrates His Life With Fans on Twitter

William Shatner is understandably still grieving the loss of his good friend and former Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy.

But because the 83-year-old actor had a prior charity commitment and can’t attend the funeral, he’s received some backlash, particularly in the form of a New York Daily News front page story.

William took to Twitter to clarify why he couldn’t go, and take the time to remember his late friend.

“I am currently in FL as I agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight. Leonard‘s funeral is tomorrow. I can’t make it back in time,” William tweeted. “I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried.”

He added, “So maybe tomorrow we come together here and celebrate his life. So let’s spend some time tomorrow celebrating Leonard’s life and remembering the man. Until tomorrow! #LLAP”

President Obama Pays Tribute to the Late Leonard Nimoy

President Obama has released his own statement on the death of Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy, who died on Friday at the age of 83.

“Long before being nerdy was cool, there was Leonard Nimoy. Leonard was a lifelong lover of the arts and humanities, a supporter of the sciences, generous with his talent and his time. And of course, Leonard was Spock. Cool, logical, big-eared and level-headed, the center of Star Trek‘s optimistic, inclusive vision of humanity’s future,” Obama said in his statement.

“I loved Spock,” he added. “In 2007, I had the chance to meet Leonard in person. It was only logical to greet him with the Vulcan salute, the universal sign for ‘Live long and prosper.’ And after 83 years on this planet – and on his visits to many others – it’s clear Leonard Nimoy did just that. Michelle and I join his family, friends, and countless fans who miss him so dearly today.”
