Zelda Williams Explains Why She'll Stay Away From Twitter on Anniversary of Dad Robin's Death

Zelda Williams will not be making an appearance on social media tomorrow, which marks the anniversary of her father, Robin Williams‘ death.

The 31-year-old actress posted a message to her fans about her absence, which she has been doing since her tragic passing in 2014.

“Tomorrow is Dad’s death anniversary. As always, I will not be here,” she writes. “It’s hard for me on regular, good days to remain the person expected to graciously accept the world’s need to share their memories of him and express their condolences for his loss.”

Zelda continues, “As I’ve said in the past, while I am constantly touched by all of your boundless continued love for him, some days it can feel a bit like being seen as a roadside memorial – a place, not a person – where people drive past and leave their sentiments to then go about their days comforted their love for him was witnessed.”

“But sometimes, that leaves me emotionally buried under a pile of other’s memories instead of my own. After all, even roses by the truckload still weigh a ton. Tomorrow, it is simply too much.”

She adds, “In my stead, if you find yourself in crisis and seek out this page hoping to be close to him somehow, please, use any of the following resources if you find you need them. Whoever out there needs to hear it, please use this as your signpost in the desert. Reach out. Seek Help. Keep fighting.”

The resources Zelda listed include Suicide Prevention Hotlines from all over the world, SAMHSA’s National Helpline for Substance Abuse, Anxiety and Depression Association of America’s support group, and many, many others.

Just recently, Zelda slammed this other celebrity child for using her father’s image for politics.
