Zelda Williams is Taking a Break From Social Media: Explanation For Her Hiatus

On the brink of the anniversary of the death of Robin Williams, his daughter Zelda has decided to take a break from social media. 

Zelda Williams took to Twitter Sunday afternoon and let her fans know that she will be taking a few time off from social media. Before she took a break, the 27-year-old didn’t forget to express her gratitude to all the fans.

"For those who always ask why, it's so people can memorialize dad on the anniversary of his death however they wish without me having to feel bombarded by it, or pressured by the expectations to put on myself or my family to publicly acknowledge or join in doing so," Zelda confessed."

I was always grateful for all the love the world had and continues to have for my dad, but for obvious reasons, it's sometimes harder to be the sort of surviving public vessel for receiving those sentiments, and one often expected to somehow flawlessly express them back. Thus, I’ll be excusing myself for a bit. Hearts just need little breaks sometimes!"

Williams also said that she would remember her father privately. 

"Obviously, the world will keep on spinning. This is hardly an important issue, my main point being you should continue to remember Dad however you want! I'll just be doing so privately. And if you'd like to celebrate his life by celebrating causes he loved, you need only google, and you’ll find wonderful charities like the @ReeveFoundation, @CAFoundation and many more.

"Tata for now!"

It is not the first time Zelda Williams has taken a break from social media. Zelda Williams did announce a break from social media on the eve of what would have been Robin's 64th birthday earlier. 

This August 11 will mark the two-year anniversary of Robin William’s death. The iconic and legendary comedian and actor had died aged 63 on Aug. 11, 2014.
