After quitting the sites shortly after her father Robin Williams’ death, Zelda Williams has returned to social media.
On Monday, September 1, Zelda simply tweeted “Thank You” with a link to a quote by Harvey Fierstein.
“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself,” the quote read.
On August 13, Zelda informed her followers that she would be deleting her accounts after she encountered cyber bullying over her father’s death.
“I will be leaving this account for a [bit] 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,” Zelda wrote on Instagram.
“Mining our accounts for photos of dad, or judging me on the number of them is cruel and unnecessary,” she added. “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.'”
Thank you. http://t.co/e2hve7fD50

The decision to delete her accounts came after several people posted crude comments of her page, and started circulating fake photos of her father’s body at the Coroner’s office. She tried to fight back to the bullies, but later just decided to delete her accounts all together.
“I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye,” she tweeted at the time.
