No church in the wild
Robin Williams’ daughter, Zelda, said she will abandon social media for a while, if not forever, after some users sent her hateful messages about her father’s apparent suicide.
Twitter trolls, whose accounts have now been suspended, sent the offensive messages to Williams, 25, before she finally wrote to all her fans and supporters, “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 posted a message on Instagram, writing, “I will be leaving this account for a but while [sic] 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. Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary.”
She continued, “There are a couple throughout, but 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. 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. Thank you for your respect and understanding in this difficult time. Goodbye. Xo.”
It’s one thing to pile on these silly azz reality TV broads and shameless attention-slores, but this girl and her family don’t deserve that. Savages. SMH.
