Leonard, who was best known for playing Mr. Spock on the beloved series Star Trek, sadly passed away in Los Angeles over the weekend. He was 83 and had been battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and had reportedly been hospitalised after experiencing chest pains earlier last week.
William Shatner, Leonard's close friend and costar in Star Trek, has since come under fire for announcing that he wouldn't be able to make Leonard's funeral in Los Angeles. He took to Twitter to clear up the misunderstanding and explain his absence.
"I am currently in FL as I agrred to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight. Leonard's funeral is tomorrow. I can't make it back in time," he tweeted.
"I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried," he shared not long after.
As he can't be at the funeral in person, the actor has been remembering Leonard on Twitter, answering questions from fans with sometimes funny, sometimes heartfelt answers.
