One of the downsides of being a celebrity is that you don’t get to savour much of your own private space, with you worrying of any hidden cameras nearby. And as her latest photos also get criticized on, Iggy Azalea decides to let off steam by quitting on social media for now.

On Sunday, Feb. 15, Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Nick Young were having some quality time together in Hawaii. But after their sweet holiday together, Azalea checked on the Internet on Wednesday night, Feb 18, only to be shocked to see photos of her during their vacation. What’s more, some took the chance to criticize her body.

Azalea then took to Twitter and went on a tirade on how her privacy was invaded and how bad that people can criticize. She added that such matters can definitely bring out the worst in a person, but she opted not to, for the sake of her fans. Instead, she posted that she will be taking some time off social media for now and that further updates will be posted instead by her team. Finally, she concluded her rant with, “The Internet is the ugliest reflection of [mankind] there is.”

This decision was a shock to many, knowing that Azalea often takes to Twitter to fire back against her rivals in the industry, taking for example her previous word wars with Azealia Banks, Eve, Jill Scott, Q-Tip, and Snoop Dogg.

Fortunately for Azalea, she gained a supporter in the person of Wendy Williams, who took to her recent episode of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ to hit on Azalea’s haters. “It just seems like black people don’t want this girl to win because she’s white. … You’re a hater because she’s crossed over and you’re mad that she’s managed to make it. You’re a hater ’cause she got herself what looks like a black girl’s butt and a black boyfriend [like] Nick Young,” Williams said. She then ended it by telling the haters to go and get a life.
