Robin Williams' daughter quits Twitter
Robin Williams' daughter has quit Twitter.
Grieving Zelda Williams was left sickened when she received abusive messages from two users, who also sent her Photoshopped pictures of her father - who took his own life on Monday (08.11.14) - supposedly after his death.
She first urged her followers to report the trolls, before announcing she was taking a break from the social media site, possibly forever.
She wrote in a tweet which she then deleted: "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 (sic)
She then wrote: "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 two users' accounts have now been suspended.
Following her father's shock death, 25-year-old Zelda used the social network to pay tribute to him.
She shared a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's literary classic 'The Little Prince' that reads: "You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them... In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night... You - only you will have stars that can laugh."
She added: "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up, Z."
She later released a moving statement in honor of her father, as did her half-brother Zak, 31, younger brother Cody, 22, and her mother - the actor's second wife - Marsha Garces.
