Minnie Driver is the latest celebrity to take a self-imposed break from Twitter.

And we can’t say we blame her one bit.

The About a Boy star responded in disgust Wednesday to the reaction of users after paparazzi pictures of her walking in Miami hit the Internet this week – and were met with a harsh critique.

“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,” Driver wrote.

She then bid at least a temporary farewell:

“I’m out of this Twittersphere for a while. It’s too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul. Not worth it.”

Other stars who have announced their departure from the social media network include Jennifer Love Hewitt, Charlie Sheen, Miley Cyrus and Alec Baldwin.

All eventually returned. We’ll see what the online future holds for Driver.
