Zelda Williams has quit Twitter after receiving abuse following the suicide of her father, Robin Williams.

She deleted the channel after pictures depicting her father after his death were posted by @MrGoosebuster and @PimpStory – both of whom have now been suspended, while account @rustIedjimmies is still active at time of writing.

Williams posted a statement on Tumblr, praising her father as “the kindest, most generous, gentle soul I’ve ever known”.

Urging people to report those who tweeted the pictures, which showed a man with strangulation marks, the 25-year-old said: "Twitter requires a link and I won’t open it. Don’t either. Please."
