Zelda Williams will not be bullied into silence.
Robin Williams’ daughter quit the social media service last month after she was bullied by a group of internet trolls. The young woman was sent horrible messages about her father as well as photoshopped images of his deceased body.
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 returned to Twitter over the weekend saying that she wasn’t going to allow herself to be bullied into silence. Robin Williams’ daughter shared a link to her Tumblr page where she had posted a quote from Harvey Feirstein.
Thank you. https://t.co/e2hve7fD50

The quote reads: “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.”
Hopefully the trolls leave Zelda Williams alone this time around.
Robin Williams passed away on August 11th. After his death, Zelda shared an emotional and loving tribute to her father.
Zelda wrote: “My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter.”
