Hailey Bieber has finally revealed the reason behind leaving the popular social media platform, Twitter, after marrying the pop star, Justin Bieber.
The 24-year-old model, Hailey Bieber, uploaded a video on her official YouTube channel, where she talked about the “effects of social media and online bullying” with psychologist Jessica Clemons via videocall.
Why did Hailey Bieber leave Twitter?
Hailey Bieber revealed that she began receiving an unprecedented amount of negative attention after marrying the “Off My Face” singer, Justin Bieber in 2018.
“I think one of the biggest things I struggled with for sure was the comparison aspect of body comparison and looks comparison and behavior comparison,” Hailey talked about the negative attention she got. “I think when you’re going through a situation where you just have so many people hounding you with the same thing over and over and over again, it starts to mess with your mind and then you start to question everything and you’re like, ‘Is there something that I’m not seeing that they see?'”
But this wasn’t all as the criticism reached “such a low point” that she started doubting her own sanity.
“I don’t even have a Twitter anymore because there was never really a time where I would go on there and it didn’t feel like it was a very toxic environment,” she explained. “The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m gonna throw up.”
For Hailey Bieber, the cure to fight all the negativity is just to reduce her usage of social media. She does this by only browsing popular social media apps on the weekends.
“I want everyone to like me, it’s like my downfall at times and I’m working through it,” she confessed, “I think one thing I’ve had to come to the conclusion of is trying not to feel like I owe everybody an explanation or owe anybody anything, and really just try to correct what I need to correct personally behind closed doors.”
Hailey also revealed that her 27-year-old beau, Justin Bieber, was a big help in her time of need.
“I really have to give him credit for it because he’s been doing this so much longer at this really massive level,” she said. “Life is way better this way.”
