With the clip of Jamie Costa's impersonation of Robin Williams going viral, the late actor's daughter has asked fans to please stop sending it to her.

Zelda Williams made it clear she wasn't downplaying the performance from Costa - an actor well known for his likeliness to Williams - saying: "Jamie is SUPER talented, this isn't against him."

Taking to Twitter, Zelda wrote: "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. 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."

The clip was posted on Costa's YouTube channel titled "ROBIN Test Footage Scene" and shows a scene from the re-done set of the sitcom Mork & Mindy, featuring Williams, played by himself, and Sarah Murphree as Pam Dawber.

As shown in the footage, Dawber sharply interrupts Williams while he runs through lines to break the news of comedian John Belushi's death. You can watch it below:


In response to Zelda, one fan wrote: "So tactless & cruel in my eyes... I lost my parents last year, I can't imagine dealing with people like that. Especially when they're trying to justify it with 'having good intentions'."

Another added: "People have absolutely no sense of decorum - I'm so sorry you're being flooded with the clip. Lots of love."

And a third commented: "I don't think they mean to cause any pain or make you sad. They just miss his light in the world. You're very gracious in how you handled this and I apologize on behalf of those who didn't think first before sending them."
