Sonakshi Sinha and Neha Kakkar have joined those list of celebs who have quit social media due to its growing TOXICITY. Both these Indian celebs bid goodbye to social media prompted by the nuisance it brings for them on a daily basis.
It’s been more than 1 week since Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide. He was just 34 when he passed away. Since the day of his unexpected death, social media has turned into a virtual court. There have been a lot of accusations and theories of all kinds have been making rounds around his death. There are talks going on social media about how both nepotism and groups in the industry caused his demise. A lot of celebs have already been declared guilty on social media. Cases have been registered against Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor & Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Bihar. There’s also a case against his rumored girlfriend, Rhea Chakraborty for abetting Sushant’s suicide.
Social media platforms have become extremely toxic, on a global scale. Not to forget the incessant trolling that happens day in & day out. All these reasons have forced a lot of celebs to either quit social media or take a break from the medium. Here’s a look at a few of them:
The Lootera lead decided to deactivate her Twitter account.
Sonakshi’s last tweet,
“The first step to protecting your sanity is to stay away from negativity. And no where more of that than twitter these days! Chalo, I’m off – deactivating my account. Bye guys, peace out,”
Though Sonakshi is still very much using Instagram. She shared the screenshot of that tweet on Instagram and captioned it with the words,
“Aag lage basti mein… mein apni masti mein! Bye Twitter.” A caption of Sonakshi’s Instagram video read, “Some people are celebrating like they won something… im happy for you, tumhe laga raha hai na… lagne do, kisi ko koi farak nahi padh raha. But let’s face it, i’ve cut the direct source of insult and abuse in my life. I’ve taken away YOUR power to be able to say whatever it is that you want to me, my family and my friends. I’ve taken away that access you had to me, that i had given you so trustingly. So there’s only one winner here. Me.”
The Indian Idol Judge cum singer has made her mind to take a temporary detox from social media. Her last Instagram post read,
“Going back to sleep! Plz wake me up when there’s a better world. The world where there’s freedom, love, respect, care, fun, acceptance, good people. Not hatred, nepotism, jealousy, bossy people, hitlers, murders, suicides, bad people. Good night! Don’t worry I’m not dying. Lol! Just going away for a couple of days – Neha Kakkar.”
Neha also added,
“I’m sorry if this makes anybody feel bad! But this is what I have been feeling since a long long time but not able to say it, just trying my best to be happy but not really happening. I’m a human being and that too a very emotional one. So.. Yeh Sab.. It hurts me.. Don’t worry I’m okay.. Love you guys. Specially My #NeHearts.”
