10 Times Angry Fans Chased Celebs Off Social Media

By

When you're a famous person with a Twitter account, be prepared to feel the wrath of angry fans. With trolls being ever so eager to harass celebrities for the stupidest reasons, it's no surprise that some celebs just decide to leave social media entirely. While some famous people only temporarily disable their accounts, others take extensive absences that last for years. That's what happened to these ten celebs, and for a few of them, we can hardly blame them.

1. Demi Lovato

When it was reported that rapper 21 Savage was deported back to the U.K., the incident became an internet punchline. Considering the rapper had lied for years about being an Atlanta native, many Twitter users created memes to poke fun at the rapper's secret British past. Demi Lovato, wanting to join in on the fun, tweeted, "So far 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl." But fans suddenly were no longer laughing and started bringing up the singer's drug past, including her overdose last year.

"Wasn't laughing at anyone getting deported," she later tried to clarify. "I know that's not a joke… not have I EVER laughed at that. The meme I posted/was talking about was of him writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone. But it's no excuse to laugh at someone's addiction let alone their OD."

However, the backlash was too big for her to handle. "F--k Twitter," she wrote before deleting her account. "This is why I don’t tweet anymore."
