Zelda Williams Asks Fans To Stop Sending Her That Viral Impression Of Her Dad

Robin Williams's daughter Zelda had to take to Twitter to ask fans to stop sending her the viral impression of her late father.

Mork and Mindy.Everything about the video is striking — Costa’s face, voice, and mannerisms are all so incredibly like Williams. Costa’s scene shows him as Williams getting ready for a day on set of the iconic 80s TV show when he’s interrupted with terrible news: the overdose death of good friend and fellow comic John Belushi, whom Williams had been out partying with the night of his death.

The emotional video wracked up millions of views in a matter of days, and had Twitter clamoring to get Costa into the leading role in a Robin Williams biopic.That all makes sense — the resemblance really is amazing — but overeager fans apparently didn’t stop to think how jarring that video might be for the late comedian’s family. Williams’s daughter Zelda had to take to Twitter to ask fans to relax.

Guys, I’m only saying this because I don’t think it’ll stop until I acknowledge it… please, stop sending me the ‘test footage’. I’ve seen it. Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn’t against him, but y’all spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days is weird. headtopics.com

We can’t imagine what it must feel like to sit down at your computer and suddenly be inundated with people giddily discussing your deceased parent, let alone trying to discuss it with you. We can’t blame Zelda at all for not wanting to be part of the whole uproar, especially given the tough time she faced online following her dad’s 2014 death.

Williams’ daughter faced unimaginablesocial media harassmentin the wake of his death, including people sending her such disgusting photos and messages I won’t even repeat them. The abuse was so bad it actually forced Twitter to reassess its harassment policies, according to CNN.

While clearly fans who sent her Costa’s video had much different intentions, it still didn’t feel pleasant to her — and that’s totally understandable. Celebrities can seem so larger than life that when they die, it feels universal — and people sometimes forget that they were real people, with real families, whose mourning goes so much deeper than their own. headtopics.com

Robin Williams' daughter has seen that viral 'test footage.' Stop sending it to herZelda Williams watched the video of an actor impersonating her late father. He's 'SUPER talented,' but she wants people to stop spamming her with it. Leave the girl alone people. Nobody wants to be reminded of the people they lost everyday. I love robin Williams as much as the next guy and I still enjoy the flicks he did but I don’t send anything to his family they’ve been through enough already I’m sure. Slow news day, huh? 🤦🏽‍♀️ I know they mean well, but when it comes to issues of personal loss, pain, familial love, it is imposing on some one if you really do not know them to offer some images.
