Zelda Williams has quit her Twitter and Instagram accounts following the sudden and sad passing of her father Robin.

When the news of Williams' apparent suicide broke on Monday, Zelda posted a quote from the Antoine De Saint-Exupery book The Little Prince, and yesterday she added a lengthy statement on Twitter (via her Tumblr account). Zelda prefaced her heartfelt goodbye with a brief message suggesting that she would be taking a break from social media for a while, and after a number of individuals wrote nasty comments to Williams, 25, she announced that she was removing herself from the online world for an indefinite amount of time.

Zelda posted a photo of a butterfly and wrote:
    "I will be leaving this account for a [bit] while I heal and decide if I'll be deleting it or not. 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. There are a couple throughout, but the real private moments I shared with him were precious, quiet, and believe it or not, not full of photos or 'selfies'. I shared him with a world where everyone was taking their photo with him, but I was lucky enough to spend time with him without cameras too. That was more than enough, and I'm grateful for what little time I had. My favorite photos of family are framed in my house, not posted on social media, and they'll remain there. They would've wound up on the news or blogs then, and they certainly would now. That's not what I want for our memories together. Thank you for your respect and understanding in this difficult time. Goodbye. Xo."

She also added on Twitter, "I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye." Both of her accounts are still online, and Robin's Twitter and Instagram profiles are still up as well.

Authorities confirmed on Tuesday afternoon at a press conference that Williams hanged himself with a belt on Monday morning, though it seems as though he may have taken his life late on Sunday night. Williams was last seen alive by his wife, Susan Schneider, before she went to bed on Sunday evening at their Northern California home. It wasn't until the following morning that Williams' body was discovered by his assistant.
