Robin Williams tragically committed suicide on Monday morning and, also tragically, some of the reaction to that event has made us question our faith in humanity.

Take Todd Bridges and Shephard Smith, both of whom referred to Williams as a selfish coward.

Or take any number of anonymous Internet trolls, who actually forced Zelda Williams to quit social media because they are such terrible human beings.

Fortunately, there have also been a number of positive tributes to Williams, such as this one from Jimmy Fallon - and also the following subtle one by sports anchor Zach Klein, who rattles off TWENTY-THREE references to Williams and his movies in a two-minute segment.

Can you catch each one?

Pretty creative and impressive, right?

Brothers and rival NFL quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning join forces and show off their rapping skills DirecTV in a new ad entitled "Fantasy Football Fantasy."

Yes, you read that right. Peyton and Eli Manning rapping. Enjoy.

Fellow New Orleans native Lil Wayne? Rolling in his grave. Or just rolling on the floor laughing at what the future Hall of Fame members spit here.

The two drop-back passers drop some ill rhymes, while saying “fantasy” and using auto-tune alot, while Joe Namath also makes an appearance.

Awkwardly caressing a woman. You can't make this stuff up.

Eli wears a fitted cap and two mink coats (one for each of his two Super Bowl titles), while his older brother drops knowledge on our collective domes.

The 2014 NFL season can't get here fast enough.

Global soccer star Hope Solo wants to have the misdemeanor assault charges against her dismissed. Local law enforcement officials have other ideas.

She has been accused of drunkenly assaulting family members in an incident that resulted in a 911 call in which one claimed, "Hope Solo is going psychotic!"

Saving Hope

That was June. In municipal court Monday, her lawyer asked for a new court date to file motions to dismiss the charges and to exclude evidence.

She was granted the new date, but faces an uphill battle to clear her name after being arrested for domestic violence. Solo's next court date is November 4.

While she aims to have evidence (including hearsay) and the entire case dismissed, City of Kirkland lawyers listed 11 officers to testify as witnesses.

Solo was at the hearing and left hand in hand with her husband, former University of Washington and Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens.

Police reports claim that the 32-year-old's family members had just let her back into their lives when she fought them early one morning this summer.

After Kate Upton changed teams, so to speak, she's officially been barred from wearing gear supporting Justin Verlander's Tigers at New York's Yankee Stadium.

Appearing on Live! With Kelly and Michael recently, the 22-year-old supermodel admitted she's having a hard time breaking up with her former squad.

"I'm sleeping with the enemy," she told host Michael Strahan of why she changed allegiances. "My boyfriend plays for the Tigers. I had to pick a side!"

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton

MLB allegiances aside, television audiences who saw Justin Verlander toss Kate Upton a ball at the Tigers-Yankees game last week were awwwed.

Or disappointed, because there's no longer any doubt Upton and Verlander are an item. But for the most part, there was no denying the cuteness.

The Bronx Bombers, however, aren't too happy about one of their high-profile cheerleaders all of a sudden throwing her support behind a rival team.

"I felt it, too, when I walked in [to Yankee Stadium]," Upton said. "They specifically said, the Yankees told me, 'You're not allowed to wear a Tigers hat!'"

MMA fighter War Machine, a.k.a. Jon Koppenhaver, is wanted by Las Vegas Police for the alleged beating of his girlfriend Christy Mack last week.

A severe beating, according to the adult film star and law enforcement officials, who want the fugitive brought in on seven charges, all of them serious.

Christy Mack, War Machine

Mack posted a chilling account and graphic pictures to her Twitter detailing the abuse she allegedly sustained at the hands of War Machine last week.

She suffered 18 broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, broken teeth and a ruptured liver after an incident she can only describe as horrific.

Mack writes that there is a $10,000 reward for his capture; War Machine went on Twitter to proclaim his innocence after the incident, but is at large.

The MMA fighter was involved in a three-person altercation early Friday, with two parties suffering severe, but non-life-threatening injuries and hospitalized.

One of the victims, police said, was War Machine’s “significant other.”

On Sunday, he posted on Twitter, several times directly to Mack, saying he wasn’t a bad guy and was only trying to surprise his girl with an engagement ring.

Needless to say, she's telling a different story about that night.

The full, stomach-turning statement from Christy Mack, along with graphic photos of the assault she claims he committed, can be seen after the jump ...

Kevin Ward Jr., the 20-year-old racing prospect killed in an accident by NASCAR star Tony Stewart, is being mourned across his native New York State and beyond.

While no criminal investigation into Stewart's conduct is underway, Ward's relatives and friends are taking Tony to task for his actions in the wake of the tragedy.

The young driver’s aunt posted to Facebook Sunday after the crash, “Thanks for thinking of our family [Tony] Stewart when you decided to be a d!ck!”

She called her late nephew “one of a kind, a true race car driver, a p!ss head and a sweetie all in one, a young man who will be truly missed by many!”

Kevin Ward's parents, who were reportedly in the stands watching the race, were a bit more diplomatic, according to local ABC affiliate WHAM:

"We appreciate the prayers and support we are receiving from the community, but we need time to grieve and wrap our heads around all of this."

As previously reported, in an incident filmed by a fan, Tony Stewart killed Kevin Ward Jr. accidentally on the race track this weekend in Canandaigua, N.Y.

His car swiped Ward's, which spun out of control, at which point Kevin exited his car and began roaming the track on foot, pointing at Stewart. Then tragedy struck.
