Bella Thorne may be saying “goodbye” to social media for the remainder of 2018. Yesterday, Bella took to Twitter to say that she would be taking a year off of social media.
The actress took to Instagram to post a picture of herself wearing a pink bra, and it said, “I decided to take a break from social media for the rest of the year.”
She also had the same message for her fans on Twitter as well. According to multiple reports, it may have something to do with past “slut-shaming” online.
Currently, it isn’t known whether or not Bella is seriously taking time off or not, but today, she posted a video of two dogs fighting on her Instagram Stories, so maybe she’s continuing to use it.
I have decided to take a break from social media all together for the rest of the year. I love you guys. ❤️

Thorne has been in the media lately promoting her latest movie, Midnight Sun, which came out on the 22nd of March. In addition to her promotion for the film, Bella opened up about facing slut-shaming comments online.
Thorne said to Entertainment Tonight last month that some people look at her online and call her a “slut” because of the way she dresses.
Moreover, Bella said the conflation with revealing clothing and child molestation is particularly offensive. She explained, “If someone says like, ‘Why do you dress that way? Is it because something that happened when you were younger?'” Thorne said she wishes peoples’ comments didn’t dig in so badly all of the time.
The Babysitter alum comes under attack from social media trolls sometimes, including, unfortunately, Rob Lowe, who reposted her Tweet on his Instagram account for the sake of shaming her.
Bella complained about the traffic one day in California, not knowing that it was due to a natural disaster. Rob re-posted her message on his account to embarrass her, despite Bella admitting she didn’t realize it was because of an accident.
