Robin Williams' daughter takes social media break ahead of his anniversary

Zelda Williams is taking a break from social media ahead of the second anniversary of her father Robin's death.

Robin took his own life on August 11, 2014 and Zelda, 27, shared a post on Instagram and Twitter over the weekend, revealing that she will be stepping away from social media in order to remember her father privately.

She tweeted: "So, it's that time of year again. I will be taking another break off social media. For those who always ask why, it's so people can memorialize Dad on the anniversary of his death however they wish without me having to feel bombarded by it, or pressured by the expectation put on myself or my family to publicly acknowledge or join in doing so"

"I will always be so grateful for all the love the world had and continues to have for dad, but for obvious reasons, it's sometimes harder to be the sort of surviving public vessel for receiving those sentiments, and one often expected to somehow flawlessly express them back.

"Thus, I'll be excusing myself for a bit. Hearts just need little breaks sometimes! (sic)"

And Zelda provided the names of some of the charities Robin supported for those who want to donate to them.

She wrote: "Obviously the world will keep on spinning. This is hardly an important issue, my main point being you should continue to remember Dad however you want! I'll just be doing so privately. And if you'd like to celebrate his life by celebrating causes he loved, you need only google, and you'll find wonderful charities like the @ReeveFoundation, @CAFoundation and many more. Tata for now!
