It's a time better served away from the opinions or sentiments of others, says Zelda Williams

Zelda Williams, daughter of late actor and comedian Robin Williams, has decided to go on hiatus from social media for a while before her father’s 64th birthday.

July 21 marks the birthday of “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Jumanji” star, who took his life last year by committing suicide. To avoid any undesirable comments and opinions, Zelda Williams announced to take a break from social media.

“I will be taking a break from social media in the coming weeks. It’s a time better served away from the opinions or sentiments of others, and I appreciate your understanding.”Zelda writes in her Instagram post. 

“In my absence, I understand there will be those who wish to leave messages regarding Dad on my board, but please attempt to be respectful and kind to one another in the process, both because I will not be here to delete or mediate trolling, and because kindness is in short supply these day.”

Meanwhile, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played the daughter of Robin Williams in his last television series “The Crazy Ones”, paid a tribute to legendary actor via Instagram on Tuesday.

Robin Williams was found dead at his home in Paradise Cay, California, nearly a year ago in August 2014. He hung himself with a belt. Certain factors drove him to end his life as investigation revealed that Robin Williams was struggling with severe depression and anxiety as well as Parkinson’s and dementia with Lewy bodies.

In his career, spanning over thirty years, Robin Williams appeared in more than 50 films and also worked in several television series. Williams received an Academy Award for his 1997 drama film “Good Will Hunting”. He also received six Golden Globe Awards, two Primetime Emmys, four Grammys and two MTV Movie Awards.

Robin Williams’ final film “Boulevard” was released on July 10, 2015. “It has been sad that such a genius isn’t going to be showing us his mastery (but everybody on Boulevard was) very proud that we have this little treasure he left behind.” Roberto Aguire, Robin’s co-star in Boulevard said.
