Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda has said she’s deleting Twitter after receiving harrowing messages.
In a post she later deleted, the 25-year-old asked her followers to report two users who had sent her hurtful comments about her father as well as Photoshopped images of the late actor after his death, reports Just Jared.
She then said she was deleting the social networking site from her devices.
“I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye,” she posted to her thousands of followers early Wednesday morning.
Earlier that day the actress – who already released a touching tribute on Instagram – recalled the last time she spent with the comedic legend in a heartbreaking statement.
She said: “My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare.
“My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments.”
The actress also admitted she will never understand his actions and humorously addressed his critics.
She added: “While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
“To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favourite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too.”
