Actress Minnie Driver has quit Twitter.com after she was bombarded with negative comments about her bikini body while on vacation.
Paparazzi photos of the Good Will Hunting star on the beach in Miami, Florida, surfaced online on Tuesday (08Apr14), but the 44 year old's physique prompted a barrage of criticism from users of the social network.
Frustrated by the cruel posts, Driver took to Twitter on Thursday (10Apr14) to express her dismay with the messages and reveal she is taking a break from the site.
She writes, "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 adds, "I'm out of this Twittersphere for a while. It's too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul. Not worth it."
Driver isn't the first celebrity to log off from her Twitter profile - Jennifer Love Hewitt and Megan Fox have also previously shut down their pages after becoming frustrated by bloggers.
