Zelda Williams took to social media after her father's death to commemorate him, and also to acknowledge the warm outpouring of adoration and support in a horrible time of loss for her family.

Words and messages, memories and anecdotes poured through every outlet of social media following the announcement of Robin Williams' passing.

However, negative messages and sentiments began finding their way to Zelda.

Things morosely escalated when she was sent, what various media are reporting as, what appeared to be photoshopped images of her father's dead body.

Zelda released a statement on her twitter and instagram that she'd be leaving the social media world "for a good long time, maybe forever."

We wish Zelda Williams and her family only healing and peace in this time of great loss. RIP Robin Williams.
