Lizzo said she has “quit Twitter” and it is all due to what she called “internet bullies” and all the “negativity on the internet” she’s been seeing.
“Yeah I can’t do this Twitter s— no more.. too many trolls,” the 31-year-old rapper tweeted to her millions of followers. “I’ll be back when I feel like it.” The tweet was noted by Page Six in a piece published Tuesday.

“I just want to say that I, you know, I just took a DNA test and it turns out I quit Twitter,” Lizzo explained. “I quit Twitter. I’m off it. All social media is not created equal.”
“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,” she added.”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.”
The “Truth Hurts” hitmaker continued, “…when I see how, not just insensitive, but hateful and hurtful we are towards each other—when I just log on every day and see something devastating and something tragic every single day. Even from my well of positivity, I feel it and it doesn’t feel good.”
