“About A Boy” star Minnie Driver is breaking up with Twitter after coming into direct contact with its dark side. While vacationing with her family, Driver was photographed wearing a bikini, which gained her some rather mean comments from Twitter users.
“God some people are horrible: you try being photographed when you don’t know it’s happening, when you’re on holiday with your kids,” she writes in one of her final tweets. “I’m out of this Twittersphere for a while. It’s too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul. Not worth it.”
Driver also shared a screenshot of a text conversation she had with a friend who told her having thick skin about the situation wouldn’t necessarily be a good thing. There’s no word on when, or if, Driver will return to Twitter.
