Robin Williams' grieving daughter, Zelda Williams, has returned to Twitter after receiving far too many unkind comments online.

After removing the popular app from her device, the 25-year-old actress posted an inspiring message on the social media site Monday afternoon.

"Thank you," she wrote with a link to her Tumblr page that features an important note on bullying.

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself," she wrote while quoting actor Harvey Fierstein

Shortly after the death of Robin, Zelda received thousands of thoughtful comments concerning her dad. Some, however, proved to be a bit too harsh for the grieving daughter.

"I'm sorry. I should've risen above," she wrote on Aug. 12. "Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."

Prior to being harassed online, Zelda thanked her followers for donating to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in memory of her father.

"I'm overwhelmed. The charity meant the world to him, as it does to me," she wrote. "Knowing that so many children will be helped in his honor is all I could've asked for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Robin was found dead Aug. 11 at his home near Marin County, Calif. The Oscar winner died from asphyxia due to hanging.

Fans will remember his humor and memorable roles in classics such as Mrs. Doubtfire, Dead Poets Society, Aladdin and countless others.
