It’s been two months since Robin Williams passed away and the tributes are still pouring in for the late comic. However, one tribute is above the rest as it’s the most personal. Robin’s daughter Zelda Williams just showed off some new ink she had done in honor of her father.
The Good Will Hunting actor’s daughter showed off a stunning tattoo in memoriam of her father Robin using her Instagram account. In a simple black and white photo, Zelda Williams shared her detailed hummingbird, which is placed on her right hand. Underneath the stunning hummingbird is Robin’s birthday, 7.21.51, which is placed at Zelda’s wrist.
In case anyone had questioned whether it was for her father or not, Zelda Williams didn’t leave any room for speculation with her long caption.
On the touching photo she writes, “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.”
As The Inquisitr reported, when the death of Williams broke, social media users infiltrated Zelda’s accounts with disturbing images and messages. Some people even included fake photos of Williams’ deceased body. Eventually Zelda spoke out about the harassment and Twitter responded, saying that they would have to review their policy to better protect their users.
Williams’ daughter disabled her account from her phone for a short period of time before returning back to Twitter, but it hasn’t been in the same capacity since the whole ordeal started.
Out of Robin’s three children, she has been the most public in representing his family. So far, she spoke out about mental illness, which is something the comedian suffered from. This was something many people didn’t know prior to his suicide.
Via her Twitter, Zelda tweeted, “Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that’s starting to change.”
“Let’s end the stigma. Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE.”
“So please, let’s help stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help.”
