William Shatner Will Not Attend Leonard Nimoy's Funeral
William Shatner has received criticism over not being able to attend Leonard Nimoy 's funeral. Shatner said the reason why is because he was attending a Red Cross charity event. Leonard Nimoy was also involved in charities and William Shatner feels that this is what Leonard Nimoy would have wanted him to do. They raised lots of money for this event and it's for a great cause. Not saying this because I'm a huge Star Trek fan but I absolutely have no issues with his decision to not attend the funeral.
I don't see why Shatner should have to justify himself to anyone, least of all to people who don't even know him. He was unable to attend a funeral, it happens. It's happened to me as well and does that make me a bad person? Give the man a break. To all the people out there judging this man, you just need to remember...
