Robin William’s daughter Zelda shares heartbreaking message after Bob Saget’s death age 65

The daughter of the late actor Robin Williams has issued a warning to grieving fans after the death of beloved sitcom star Bob Saget.

Zelda Williams shared a heartbreaking message on social media following the Full House star’s shock death at age 65, asking mourners to be “mindful” of the actor’s loved ones.

Saget’s death is likely a painful reminder for the 32-year-old, who lost her dad Robin in 2014.

“While outpouring love in memory of Bob Saget today, please try to be mindful of the mourning, and privacy, of his loved ones,” Zelda, 32, wrote on Twitter.

“Don’t bombard them if they have socials. Don’t consume clickbait media that may have invaded their privacy or violated their safety. They’re human. X.”

Zelda, who suffered the same grief in 2014 when the Good Will Hunting star died, spoke about her own experience with losing someone in the public eye.

“As someone who went thru it, I try to gently remind the little slice of the world that listens to try not to treat the loved ones of famous losses as memorials to them,” she added.

“They’re people, in a lot of pain, and being turned into a signpost for other’s loss can be very, very hard.”
