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.

The 31-year-old actress/director clapped back at the 36-year-old son of Donald Trump after he posted a video on Twitter of her late father Robin Williams mocking former Vice President Joe Biden.

“We still have great comedy out there, there’s always rambling Joe Biden, what the f–k,” Robin said in the clip from a comedy show back in 2009. “Joe says s–t that even people with turrets go, ‘No. What is going on?’”

Two days after Eric shared the clip, Zelda fired back at him on Twitter.

“While we’re ‘reminiscing’ (to further your political agenda), you should look up what he said about your Dad. I did. Promise you, it’s much more ‘savage,’” Zelda tweeted. “Gentle reminder that the dead can’t vote, but the living can ♥️”

Robin Williams' Grandson is Learning About Him Through 'Aladdin' Role

Robin Williams‘ son, Zak, is using his iconic Aladdin role as the Genie, to introduce him to his own son, Mickey.

Zak revealed to People that cels of Robin‘s famous roles hang in Mickey‘s room.

“His mom [Olivia June] and I have certainly considered how we want to introduce my son’s grandfather, my dad, into his life,” he shared in a new interview. “Certainly through his movies and the cartoons that he participated in is a great way. My son, Mickey, points at a cel that we have in his room of my dad that has the genie from Aladdin.”

Zak continues that in addition to the cels in Mickey’s room, there are even more “throughout our home that he sees on a daily basis. I think it’s being mindful and introducing the elements and stories about him slowly.”

He adds, “We hope that we can celebrate the positive elements and his works and films in a way that there can be appreciation and acknowledgment of him both as an entertainer, but also as a family man, and parent and grandfather to my son. So, the key thing would be for us to introduce it slowly and meaningfully. Taking an opportunity to share stories and his values in a way that we hope can be appreciated and embodied.”

Robin sadly died by suicide in 2014. Zak welcomed Mickey, whose full name is McLaurin Clement, in 2019.

Robin Williams' Youngest Son Cody Gets Married on Late Actor's Birthday

Cody Williams, the youngest son of the late actor Robin Williams, is a married man!

The 27-year-old tied the knot with Maria Flores on Sunday (July 21), which happened to be the same day Robin would have turned 68.

Cody‘s wedding took place at the home that Robin and his ex-wife Marsha Garces Williams used to share. His sister Zelda Williams took to Instagram to commemorate the day.

“The 21st of July has meant many things to me over the years. It’s the birthday of one of my favorite souls still on this earth, @junotemple. It’s the day Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon (as a space nerd, that’s pretty damn important). And it was the day my Dad was born, and the last day I got to see him,” Zelda wrote.

“That last one had begun to usurp the joy of the first two in recent years… that is, until two days ago, when it became something new,” Zelda continued. “On the 21st of July, 2019, it became the day I officially gained a new sister!”

“To @mariaaafloresssswilliams and Cody, you are a light in all of our lives. I’m so grateful to have paid witness to your love over the years, to have watched you grow and care for each other in ways we should all be so lucky to experience. You were already part of the family in my eyes, but now there’s an official slip of paper somewhere that agrees!
Zak, Mom and I love you both dearly, and I think I can speak for all of us when I say CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM!!! 🎊🥂🍾🍰💫🕊 ♥️,” she concluded.

Congrats to the happy couple!

The 36-year-old son of the late actor and comedian spoke out in an interview with Good Morning Britain on Sunday (July 21).

”And there were times where it felt like there was helplessness from my part, I didn’t know what I could do, or how I could be of the best support.”
