Robin Williams' daughter quits social media over the trolls

zelda-robin-williams.jpgSince posting a message Monday night about her father's death, and yesterday on her Tumblr, Zelda Williams has received a ton of support in social media. But it's the hateful response of (again) some anonymous Internet abusers that is forcing her off social media for the indefinite future.

She had called on her followers to shun Twitter accounts @PimpStory and @MrGoosebuster, which have been suspended, but she later deleted her tweet.

Also new: David Simon, creator of "The Wire," on working with Robin Williams on "Homicide: Life on the Street." Blog
