The emotional Instagram post comes less than three weeks after her father's death, back on March 4, after a brief stay in the hospital following a massive stroke. The actor was 52.

Shortly after his passing, Sophie took to Instagram to speak out against hurtful comments she'd been receiving on social media for how she was coping with her loss.

“Since my dad died I have received a lot of attention online, and most of it has been positive but of course, some people just can’t be nice," she wrote. "I am going to laugh and smile and live my normal life. YES I am hurt and sad and crying and beside myself with what happened to my dad. It’s the worst thing to ever happen in my life. And I am torn the f**k up over it. But I’m not going to sit in my room and cry day in and day out until the internet has deemed it appropriate for me to do otherwise. And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldn’t want me to. So you shouldn’t either.”

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star was survived by Sophie, as well as his 21-year-old son Jack, their parent and his ex-wife, Rachel Sharp, and his fiancee, Wendy Madison Bauer.

A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support. I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I. I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bare with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.
