Twitter trolls have been terrorising Robin Williams' daughter Zelda on the social networking site, tweeting her supposed pictures of Robin's body, forcing her to delete her account in disgust.

Zelda (25) initially pleaded with followers to report the culprits: 'I'm shaking. I can't," she tweeted. "Please. Twitter requires a link and I won't open it. Don't either. Please."


She later deleted the tweet and closed down Twitter account. "I'm sorry. I should've risen above," read her last tweet. "Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."

She went a step further and decided to take a break from picture sharing platform Instagram too, to give herself time to heal.

"I will be leaving this account for a bit while I heal and decide if I'll be deleting it or not," she wrote in her last post, a caption to a beautiful image of a butterfly. "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. 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"
