Robin Williams' daughter Zelda says she is leaving Twitter because of social media abuse after her father's death.

The 25-year-old posted that she was deleting Twitter from her devices "maybe forever".

It appears at least two people sent her "photoshopped" images claiming to show her father's body.

Robin Williams, 63, was found dead at his California home on Monday after taking his own life.

Police said the actor and comedian had been treated for depression and killed himself by hanging.

Zelda, 25, initially posted a tribute to her father on Twitter saying: "I love you. I miss you. I'll try to keep looking up."

Later, she asked for two Twitter users to be reported for abuse, before deleting her message.

She said on Tuesday she had now decided to leave the site.

Earlier she posted a statement on Tumblr thanking people for support but also sending a message to "those sending negativity".

"Know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you've had it washed," she said.

British comedian Russell Kane told Newsbeat that he was "offended" by some comments made after the death of Williams.

"People's comments saying how selfish Robin Williams is for doing this, people just don't understand what depression is like," he said.

Fox News TV anchor Shepard Smith sparked criticism after suggesting the actor was a "coward" to kill himself.

Smith has now said he regrets using the word while speculating on air what Williams may have been feeling at the time, according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile TalkSport has apologised after its radio presenter Alan Brazil said he had "no sympathy" for suicide.
