Charli XCX is taking a break from social media for mental health reasons after facing criticism for her recent NFT venture.
The singer-songwriter issued a statement on Thursday, to explain that she’s temporarily stepping back from Twitter due to the negativity she has been receiving on the platform.
“I’ve always had a pretty open dialogue with you guys and so I just wanna mention a few things that have been on my mind recently,” Charli wrote.
“I have been feeling like I can’t do anything right at the moment. I know social media isn’t exactly a haven for kindness and positivity but generally speaking I always felt pretty safe with you guys on here.”
She continued: “I’ve noticed lately that a few people seem quite angry at me – for the choices of songs I’ve chosen to release, for the way I’ve decided to roll out my campaign, for the things I need to do to fund what will be the greatest tour I’ve ever done, for things I say, things I do, etc.
The singer went on to say that she will be drafting tweets in the future for her management to post rather then doing them herself.
