Charli XCX steps back from Twitter for mental health reasons

Charlie XCX is moving away from Twitter for mental health reasons, after facing “negativity and criticism” of the popular social networks platform.

The musician released a statement about the decision on Thursday (Dec. 10), stipulating that he would occasionally compose tweets for someone else to share on his account.

“I’ve always had a pretty open dialogue with you guys so I just want to mention a few things that have been on my mind recently,” he wrote.

“I’ve 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 overall I’ve always felt pretty safe with you guys here.”

“Lately I’ve noticed that some people seem pretty mad at me, about the song choices I’ve chosen to release, about the way I’ve decided to launch my campaign, about the things I need to do to finance what’s going to be the best tour I’ve ever done, about things I say, things I do, etc.”

Earlier this week, Charli (real name Charlotte Emma Aitchison) faced some criticism online after it was announced that she would be performing at the Afterparty in Las Vegas, an event that requires attendees to possess one of 1,500 specialized NFTs.

He continued: “I’ve been dealing with my mental health quite a bit over the past few months and obviously it makes the negativity and criticism harder to deal with when I come across it and of course I know this is a common struggle for the most people. in this day and age.

“But yeah anyway… I just wanted to come in here and say, hey, I’m really here doing my best and working hard to make stuff that’s exciting and exciting and honestly there’s a lot more crazy stuff to come. ”
