Robin Williams Daughter Quit Twitter After Abusive Tweets

Robin Williams daughter Zelda quit micro-blogging site Twitter and other social media accounts on Tuesday over abusive images and cruel messages about the late actor.

“I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye,” Zelda tweeted before deactivating her account, Mashable reported.

Two Twitter users with the handles @PimpStory and @MrGoosebuster, tweeted a photoshopped picture of Williams’ dead body. Zelda later asked her followers to report the users because she cannot stand the image.

“Please report @PimpStory @MrGoosebuster. I’m shaking. I can’t. Please. Twitter requires a link and I won’t open it. Don’t either. Please,” she tweeted but deleted a few minutes later.

Zelda, who is also an actress in her own right, left her Instagram account dormant, The Independent reported. In a statement on the photo-sharing site accompanied by a photo of a butterfly, the 25-year old said she “will be leaving this account … while I heal and decide if I’ll be deleting it or not… In this difficult time, please try to be respectful of the accounts of myself, my family and my friends.”

She also took swipe against her detractors in a separate statement posted on blogging website Tumblr.

“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.”

Williams, dubbed as one of the world’s funniest, was found dead in an apparent suicide on Tuesday in his California home. He was 63 years old.
