Iggy Azalea quits social media: 'The Internet is the ugliest reflection of mankind'

In the early hours of this morning, Australian rap sensation Iggy Azalea announced that she will be taking some time away from social media because she has seen the bad side of it and no longer wants to be involved in that. 

Writing on her official Twitter page, the 'Fancy' beauty explained that she needs to step away for a while because she's exhausted by the negativity:

"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. Lol. I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lens hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace."

"I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that. To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling. But I also want to let my fans know I am taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining."

Azalea then concluded her explanation by confirming that unless a tweet has been signed by her, fans should assume that it was sent out by her management and label team: My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out! The Internet is the ugliest reflection of mankind there is."
