Robin Williams‘ grieving daughter Zelda Williams has quit social media after some ‘fans’ added to the pain she already has to bear.
While some fans expressed their love and respect for her late father who was found dead in his Californian home on Monday, August 11, some unpleasant online characters took the opportunity to post horrific comments and pictures on Zelda’s Twitter page.
She initially requested her supporters to report the trolls, who posted what appeared to be photoshopped images of her dad onto her account, Zelda, 25, later removed her tweet and instead decided it was better for her to delete her social media accounts entirely.
“I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above, Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.
The mourning actress also took a step away from Instagram, begging social media users to be respectful of her and her family in this difficult time.
“I will be leaving this account for a bit while I heal and decide if I’ll be deleting it or not,” she wrote. “In this difficult time, please try to be respectful of the accounts of myself, my family and my friends. Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary. There are a couple throughout, but the real private moments I shared with him were precious, quiet, and believe it or not, not full of photos or ‘selfies’. I shared him with a world where everyone was taking their photo with him, but I was lucky enough to spend time with him without cameras too. That was more than enough, and I’m grateful for what little time I had. My favorite photos of family are framed in my house, not posted on social media, and they ‘ll remain there. They would’ve wound up on the news or blogs then, and they certainly would now. That’s not what I want for our memories together. Thank you for your respect and understanding in this difficult time. Goodbye. Xo”
