Zelda Williams Is Deleting Twitter for a 'Good Long Time'
The 25-year-old actress took to her account to plead with her Twitter followers to report two users who had been sending her absolutely awful messages and photos.
“Please report @PimpStory @MrGoosebuster. I’m shaking. I can’t. Please. Twitter requires a link and I won’t open it. Don’t either. Please,” Zelda wrote before deleting the tweet.
The two users were sending her photos that appeared to be Photoshopped pictures of Robin supposedly after his death. They also called her some awful words.
After deleting that tweet, Zelda 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.”
Earlier in the evening, Zelda released a lengthy statement that was incredibly touching and also infused with a great sense of humor.
I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.

UPDATE: Zelda added this message on her Instagram account: “I will be leaving this account for a but 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. 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”
