Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda was bullied on social media after her father’s death, causing the 25-year-old to suspend her Twitter and Instagram accounts. “Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever,” Zelda posted on Twitter Aug. 13. Nearly three weeks later, she’s back.
Zelda posted a simple tweet Monday, her first since Aug. 13, reading “Thank you.” In that tweet, she also linked to a Tumblr post containing a quote from actor Harvey Fierstein: “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life; define yourself.”
In an Instagram post announcing her decision to take a break from social media, Zelda revealed people were leaving mean-spirited comments on her photos. “Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary,” she wrote. As of Tuesday, her Instagram account is private.
