Iggy Azalea Quits Twitter: 'The Internet Is the Ugliest Reflection of Mankind There Is'
In an effort to avoid online negativity, rapper Iggy Azalea has decided to quit Twitter.
She arrived at her decision following unflattering comments she received about paparazzi photos taken of her in a bikini while on vacation in Hawaii.
“Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it’s shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite,” she Tweeted late on Wednesday. “I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a [perv] with a long-distance lens hiding out taking pictures,” she continued. “Everyone deserves peace.”
The “Fancy” rapper went on to say that the “hatred and pettiness” she has faced is making her an “angry person” in turn. “I cannot be that.”
The rapper felt it would be a “disservice” to her fans if she “[became] nasty because of the way I feel I am treated,” and so her management will continue to Tweet and run her accounts from now on “unless any message is signed -IA.”
“The Internet is the ugliest reflection of [mankind] there is.”
