Robin Williams’ daughter, Zelda, has been forced to quit her social media accounts like Twitter and Instagram upon receiving negative comments from Internet trolls after her father’s tragic death.
She took to Twitter to say she’s deleting the accounts from her “devices” possibly for good.
"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 first wrote, then deleted it, E! Online reports.
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.”

She also took to Instagram to write, “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."
She also said, "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," she continued. "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.”
Internet trolls had been altering photos of the Mork and Mindy star and sending her negative messages. Police have said Williams died of asphyxia due to hanging.
She also joked in a Tumblr post, which she called her “only statement,” that whoever is sending the negative messages, “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.”
The actor's last social media post was a photo of himself with Zelda when she was a baby, in which he wishes her a happy 25th birthday and said she's "always my baby girl."
