Buzzfeed reports that Ahmed Best tweeted that he thought about killing himself after his character faced intense backlash. Best was the actor behind Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks. This is the first time Best publicly opened up about his thoughts of suicide. Best shared a photo of himself on a bridge with his son, writing, “This was the place I almost ended my life. It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival.”
