As the anniversary of the death of actor-comedian Robin Williams is approaching, his daughter Zelda says she is taking a break from social media.
The iconic comedian and actor died on August 11, 2014. He was 63.
Zelda took to Twitter Sunday to let fans know that she will be taking a break from social media. The 27-year-old also expressed her gratitude to all the fans, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
She posted: “So, it’s that time of year again. I will be taking another break off social media. For those who always ask why, it’s so people can memorialise Dad on the anniversary of his death. However, they wish without me having to feel bombarded by it, or pressured by the expectation put on myself or my family to publicity acknowledge or join in doing so.”
Zelda explained: “I will always be so grateful for all the love the world had and continues to have for dad, but for obvious reasons, it’s sometimes harder to be the sort of surviving public vessel for receiving those sentiments, and one often expected to somehow flawlessly express them back. Thus, I’ll be excusing myself for a bit. Hearts just need little breaks sometimes.”
Zelda hopes fans will be able to remember her father in various ways.
“Obviously, the world will keep on spinning. This is hardly an important issue, my main point being you should continue to remember Dad however you want! I’ll just be doing so privately.
“And if you’d like to celebrate his life by celebrating causes he loved, you need only google, and you’ll find wonderful charities like the @ReeveFoundation, @CAFoundation and many more. Tata for now!”
Williams, who featured in a string of comedy films like “Mrs. Doubtfire”, “Night at the Museum” and “Aladdin”, was found dead at his home in California.
