Zelda Williams recently got a hummingbird tattoo on her hand in honor of her later father Robin Williams.
Zelda shared a photo of her new ink on Instagram this morning, writing:
“For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile.”
Zelda has been on and off social media since the death of her father. The young actress was harassed in the wake of Robin Williams’ death and decided that staying in the spotlight just wasn’t worth it.
But when she took down accounts on Twitter and Instagram, internet trolls swooped in to make fake accounts pretending that they were Zelda Williams. When the young woman posted her tattoo to Instagram this morning, she accompanied the photo with a message reminding her fans that the internet is full of trolls.
“As for this Instagram, I don’t know in what capacity I’ll continue using it in the future, but I’m leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family’s photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.”
Here’s a look at Zelda Williams’ new tattoo and possible her last Instagram post.
