After Robin Williams’s tragic death, the situation became even more unfortunate due to the hateful posts from Internet trolls.

The comments got so bad that they led the late comedian’s daughter, Zelda Williams, to remove her Twitter profile.

According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Twitter added a policy in response to the ugly situation “allowing family members of the deceased to have hateful posts removed.”

Only a few weeks after his death and days after Billy Crystal's touching Emmy tribute, a new biography about Williams has also been announced.

Billboard” reports that “The New York Times” writer Dave Itzkoff will pen the biography.

"Robin Williams was a cultural hero of mine. In the encounters and interactions I was able to share with him, he was always gentle and generous, humane and thoughtful and hilarious," Itzkoff said in a statement (via “Billboard”).

Williams also has four unreleased film projects in the works, including a new “Night at the Museum” sequel and the holiday comedy “Merry Friggin’ Christmas.”
