Robin Williams may be gone, but the late actor is living on through a new tribute from his daughter.
Zelda Williams posted a photo on Instagram this week of a tattoo of a hummingbird, a memorial the young actress said was inspired by her father. "For poppo," Williams wrote of the ink. " ... I'll always put my hand out to shake with a smile."
For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I'll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. As for this Instagram, I don't know in what capacity I'll continue using it in the future, but I'm leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family's photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.
According to Fish Wrapper, the hummingbird is a symbol that the Williams family has used before, reportedly handing out wristbands featuring the creatures at Robin Williams's memorial service earlier this year. The 63-year-old actor hung himself at his California home on August 11.
In addition to the hummingbird, Zelda Williams also has her father's birthday, 7-21-51, tattooed on her wrist. Since the elder Williams's death, Zelda has been an advocate on social media of mental health awareness and anti-bullying.
