Selena Gomez Says She Deletes Instagram Once a Week Because of All the Cruel Comments

Selena Gomez is trying to avoid haters and online trolls as much as she can.

The 24-year-old singer/actress is currently the most followed celeb on Instagram – she has over 114 million followers – but she admits she has to distance herself from all the negativity and cruel comments online trolls write to her.

“I delete the app from my phone at least once a week,” Selena told The New York Times. “You fixate on the negative ones. They’re not like, ‘You’re ugly.’ It’s like they want to cut to your soul. Imagine all the insecurities that you already feel about yourself and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing—even if it’s just physical.”

Selena also shared in her Vogue cover story that she had to distance herself from Instagram because she was becoming too consumed with it, saying that it was “putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about.”
