On Sunday, Zelda Williams, daughter of the late legend Robin Williams, announced she's taking a break from social media shortly before the second anniversary of her father's death. Williams had recently posted a tribute to her father on what would've been his 65th birthday. She expressed gratitude to fans, and acknowledged she needs a break because it's difficult to grieve while simultaneously being a spokesperson for her father's legacy:

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 publicity 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.
