Costa posted a skit on Tuesday, titled “ROBIN Test Footage Scene,” the place he impersonated Williams throughout his 1982 “Mork & Mindy” days.
Zelda, 32, expressed her irritation with the five-minute clip, saying she’s sick of individuals sending her videos of individuals appearing like her father.
“Guys, I’m only saying this because I don’t think it’ll stop until I acknowledge it… please, stop sending me the ‘test footage’. I’ve seen it,” she tweeted on Tuesday. “Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn’t against him, but y’all spamming me an impression of my late Dad on one of his saddest days is weird.”
Williams died by suicide in August 2014 on the age of 63 after battling Lewy physique dementia.
One of the “saddest days” of the Oscar-winning actor in query was seen in Costa’s skit. The video confirmed Williams on the set of “Mork and Mindy” in 1982 whereas his sitcom costar Pam Dawber (performed by Sarah Murphree), tells him his good friend John Belushi died.
Belushi handed away in March of that 12 months from a drug overdose on the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The “Saturday Night Live” comic was 33 on the time of his loss of life.
Zelda swore off social media final 12 months for the sixth anniversary of her father’s loss of life. “As always, I will not be here,” she tweeted at the time. “It’s arduous for me on common, good days to stay the individual anticipated to graciously settle for the world’s want to share their reminiscences of him and categorical their condolences for his loss.
“As I’ve said in the past, while I am constantly touched by all of your boundless continued love for him,” she continued, “some days it can feel a bit like being seen as a roadside memorial—a place, not a person—where people drive past and leave their sentiments to then go about their days comforted their love for him was witnessed.”
The actions go away Zelda feeling “emotionally buried under a pile of other’s memories instead of my own.”
She added, “After all, even roses by the truckload weigh a ton.”
