Two days after her father’s death, Zelda Williams has quit her Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr accounts after users sent her photoshopped pictures of her dad’s body.
I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.— Zelda Williams (@zeldawilliams) August 13, 2014
This tweet came after she posted an emotional message to her dad on Twitter:
On her Tumblr account, she wrote:
“As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too.’’
She also posted this Instagram, with a long caption which included, “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:’’
According to Mashable, Zelda Williams tweeted, “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,’’ to call attention to abusive accounts.
She later deleted that tweet. The accounts have been suspended.
