Zelda Williams Returns To Social Media, Shows New Tattoo Inspired By Robin


Zelda Williams returned to Instagram after several months with a photo of her new tattoo, a hummingbird on the side of her hand, below the thumb.

Robin Williams’ birthday, 7.21.51, is featured on her wrist, near the hummingbird. The caption for the Instagram photo reads: “For Poppo. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile.”

This is the first social media post from Zelda in a while. Soon after her father died, she was subject to online harassment and trolling, with people posting gruesome pictures of Robin’s dead body and writing vile comments to her.

People were also stalking her profiles and looking for private pictures of her and her father, making comments about their relationship and basically not leaving her alone to grieve for her father in peace.

She then announced that she would stay out of social media for the most part, at least until the trolls leave her alone.

For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. As for this Instagram, I don’t know in what capacity I’ll continue using it in the future, but I’m leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family’s photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.
