    Robin Williams' daughter has been forced off Twitter after internet trolls posted a fake photograph claiming to be her dead father.

    Zelda Williams, 25, made an appeal to her 169,000 followers to report two users on Twitter who sent the image to her account.
    She wrote: 'I'm shaking. I can't. Please. Twitter requires a link and I won't open it. Don't either. Please.'

    Hurt: Robin Williams' daughter Zelda has been forced off Twitter by internet trolls

    The image has since been revealed to be a fake which was digitally altered to look like Robin Williams.
    The two accounts responsible for the messages, @PimpStory and @MrGoosebuster, have now been suspended.

    Furious Twitter users were quick to respond to Zelda to show her their support.

    One wrote: 'I hope @zeldawilliams knows the people who love her outnumber the scumbags by about 94,000,000 to 1.'

    While another wrote: '@zeldawilliams that is the saddest and sickest thing I have ever seen. I am ashamed if (sic) humanity.'
    Later Zelda deleted the tweet but explained how she planned to delete her Twitter account, maybe forever.

    She 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.'


    Later Zelda deleted the tweet but explained how she planned to delete her Twitter account

    Zelda has also said she plans to not use Instagram until she 'heals'. She posted: 'I will be leaving this account for a bit while 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.


    '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.


    Furious Twitter users were quick to respond to Zelda to show her their support after she was trolled


    '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'.

    Last night the actor's heartbroken daughter released a statement about the death of her father.

    She wrote: 'My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that's gone, and I feel stripped bare.
    '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.


    'He was always warm, even in his darkest moments.'

    He had several superficial cuts on the inside of his left wrist.

    A pocket knife with what appeared to be dried blood was discovered nearby.
    The Mrs Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting star's suicide comes after decades of battling depression and alcohol and drug addiction.

    He was also facing significant financial pressures and admitted he was selling a $35million estate in Napa because he could no longer afford it.
    Williams struggled with depression and an addiction to cocaine and alcohol for decades. Last month the married father of three was back in rehab 'fine-tuning' his sobriety in a year where he had been working on six movies and a TV series.

    I was hoping that just for fucking ONCE, assholes, the press and every other shit stain would just NOT. I do NOT want to see pictures of his kids coming out of his funeral. I don't need to see that. We know that the family is hurting, no need to exploit it to sell fucking paper!

    Kill her.
    Kill It.

However, if, as was also implied, he tried to cut his wrists first, that has nothing to do with auto-erotic asphyxiation. So perhaps, IF he was only partially-clothed, he simply took his pants off because he needed the belt to hang himself with. Simple as that.

    To be honest, I wish I didn't know all this. I didn't expect the press conference to cover so much. There's no dignity in having these tragic details made so public. Although I admit that I can't help my interest, there's something deeply disturbing about having so little privacy for our most personal, private, intimate, final moments. Would any of us want this for ourselves, let alone our parents, children and loved ones? And the thought that the 911 call will also become a matter of public record, with every word and hesitation and tone to be pored over in the press (which it will be) - who thinks of such exposure when you call an emergency number?

    Robin can send a flock of pigeons to poop on my car as often as he likes, but I feel uncomfortable and a little ashamed of my prurience. He evoked real affection in so many of us and I wish only to show respect and sympathy. But I worry that some of this extreme openness simply isn't right.
    This was clearly directed at me so I will respond. First the article with the statement from the Sheriff states he was partially clothed so I am not sure why you feel he did not say that. Second - I have treated families of suicide victims and they often try to find a way to believe the suicide was an accident, that their loved one never intended to leave them on purpose. If he had died of erotic asphyxiation his family would know he didn't plan to leave. But, I am well aware of the cuts at his wrist since I posted that article too. It is terribly clear that he was troubled and this outcome was a possibility for him.

    I do agree that the press is intrusive and don't like that 911 calls are made public. However, that is a trade-off for some of the freedoms in this country. In an effort to keep transparency in our government we have "right to know laws" and they sometimes cross the line.

    I find it rather sickening and can't fathom why there has to be a headline on CNN about the method he used to kill himself. It is all so intrusive, and not any of my business.

    I heard a snippet of an interview with someone on NPR (don't know who it was, probably another celebrity) who said that essentially Robin Williams died of depression. That makes sense to me. I hope this helps bring some attention to people who are suffering from serious depression.

    just saw this posted somewhere else. It really is disgusting, We know that he has passed away now so why can't the media just the let family and friends grieve in peace. The more articles there are the more the trolls come out and no one wants to be dealing with that bullshit when they are grieving for a loved one.

    I think they were photoshopped autopsy pics or something but I honestly have no clue myself. Once again, humanity fails.

    From what I've heard, this happened sometime during the night. When everyone started saying "partially clothed" I thought - well, ya....who sleeps with all their clothes on?

    Haven't read this entire thread yet, but somebody said it was "well known" that he suffered from bipolar disease. I never heard this before.

    The 15 Most Horrible Conservative Comments About Robin Williams’ Death On Social Media

    Author: Vera August 13, 2014 1:59 am


    By now, everyone’s heard the news that actor Robin Williams has died after suffering many years of depression.
    The news came as a shock to all. While most have been expressing their grief through touching tributes and sympathetic tweets in memory of the comedian, the passing of the famous actor seems to have brought out the worst in Conservatives.
    From Fox News calling Williams “a coward” to radio host Rush Limbaugh claiming that the comedian killed himself “because he was a liberal” to pro-life sites saying that abortion was to blame for Williams’ suicide, there is no limit to how low these comments can get.
    However, it’s the comments from the general public that have been raising eyebrows. The following screen captures were taken from the Fox News facebook page and are comments left by the page’s fans. While these posts definitely don’t represent all Conservatives, it’s clear that there are a few bad eggs out there. Try not to lose your faith in humanity.

    I won't even watch any of the coverage on television. I just want to remember Robin for the talented man he was.
