Shortly after her father Robin's death, Zelda Williams decided to take a break from social media. When she left, she wasn't sure how long she'd be gone, but she did say that maybe it would be forever.
She'd had enough. While there were plenty of Robin's fans offering their thoughts and prayers to Zelda and her brothers, there were plenty more how had horrible things to say about the comedian and the manner of his death.
Yesterday, Zelda returned to Twitter and Tumblr. She quoted Harvey Fierstein - one of Robin's Mrs. Doubtfire co-stars - almost apologizing for letting the bullies win.
A powerful statement. And hopefully, a lesson learned for all of us...
