In the photo, the late actor, who appears to be in the driver's seat, sits next to his daughter while she cuddles with a cute dog. This isn't the first time Sophie has posted about her father's passing. The teenager, whose mother is Perry's ex Rachel Minnie Sharp, previously wrote about some of the negative feedback she's been getting on Instagram.

"Since my dad died I have received a lot of attention online," she captioned a selfie. "And most of it has been positive but of course, some people just can't be nice. And 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."

"I'm 18. I swear like a sailor and sometimes I dress like a hooker," she continued. "And I support causes and you may not. 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.

"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," Sophie continued. "And if you knew my dad you would know he wouldn't want me to. So you shouldn't either."

She ended her post with a message aimed directly at the trolls criticizing her: "So to those of you shaming me for my language and my wardrobe and most disgustingly, my grieving process, do us both the favor and just unfollow. It's a waste of both of your time."

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. And 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. I’m 18. I swear like a sailor and sometimes I dress like a hooker. And I support causes and you may not. And most importantly. 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 fuck 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 wouldnt want me to. So you shouldn’t either. So to those of you shaming me for my language and my wardrobe and most disgustingly, my grieving process, do us both the favor and just unfollow. It’s a waste of both of our time.

Sophie rushed home from a humanitarian trip in Africa to be by her father's side when he died. In her first post after his passing, she shared a photo with her dad, thanking fans for their "beautiful and heartfelt messages."

"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," she said at the time. "So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly."

On International Women's Day, Sophie shared another post celebrating her mother, honoring Luke at the same time. "You all know my dad is a super star, but I just want to share for a moment that I got really f--king lucky in the parental department because this is my mom," she wrote. "How did I get so lucky to have two icons for parents?"

Perry passed away on March 4 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, days after suffering a "massive" stroke at his Los Angeles home. He was 52.
