The fun, loud, loving star announced her break from the social media platform on Sunday (January 5). Lizzo, who didn’t fully deactivate her account, stated trolling as the reason for her Twitter detoxing.
“Yeah I can’t do this Twitter shit no more.. too many trolls,” she wrote. “I’ll be back when I feel like it.”
The eight-time Grammy nominee also explained her decision to take a break from Twitter during an Instagram Live session shortly before her concert at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. “I just want to say that I, you know, I just took a DNA test and it turns out I quit Twitter. I quit Twitter. I’m off it. All social media is not created equal,” she said.
“I would love to be on Twitter ’cause I could connect with you people who positively support me… not to mention spreading my own positive messages,” Lizzo continued. “But now I’ve gotten to a point where I’m not just dealing with Internet bullies, I’m dealing with seeing a lot of negativity on the Internet dealing with everyone.”
Her post stated her to be feeling better on Monday (January 6). After performing at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping artist put her trolls on notice via Instagram.
“Confidence is comin back… it’s over for u troll bitches,” she declared.
