Luke Perry's daughter, Sophie Perry, is responding to internet trolls who have criticized the way she's dealing with her father's death.

The 18-year-old took to social media to hit back at internet trolls who have been shaming her for her language, wardrobe and "grieving process". "I'm here to say that I did not ask for this attention, I did not ask to be thrown into some virtual spotlight, and while I don't mean to offend anybody, I'm also not going to cater to any one else's needs and beliefs".

Posting a picture of herself with her mother last week, Sophie wrote: "You all know my dad is a super star, but I just want to share for a moment that I got really f***ing lucky in the parental department because this is my mom". Sophie, 18, explained that she had been shamed about her "wardrobe", her "language" and for using swear words while mourning. "And most importantly. I am going to laugh and smile and live my normal life".

She went on to say she is "hurt and sad and crying and beside myself" over Perry's passing, calling it "the worst thing to ever happen in my life", but it's not going to stop her from being her.

"If you knew my dad you would know he wouldnt want me to". So you shouldn't either. It's a waste of both of your time, ' she continued.

Sophie rushed home from a humanitarian trip in Africa to be by her father's side when he died. "Because today is a day to celebrate all women", she wrote.

Luke Perry tragically died aged 52 on Monday March 4, days after suffering a massive stroke. He is survived by his children Sophie and Jack, his fiancée Wendy Madison Bauer and his ex-wife Minnie. "Our thoughts are with Luke's family during this most hard time".

"A lot has happened in this past week for me", she captioned her Instagram post of the father and daughter. "Everything is happening so fast". I can not individually respond to the hundreds of attractive and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I. So [bear] with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. And she is the rock for everybody grieving in this family right now.
