Recently, the 25-year-old rapper, Cardi B deleted her Instagram account. The American rapper took this decision after Azealia Banks called her an 'illiterate and untalented rat' during the appearance on The Breakfast Club.
The singer responded to the comments and wrote in her now deleted, Instagram post: "Just because I mix a few words up forget to use commas or misspell a few words doesn't make me illiterate and doesn't make me stupid." Cardi B later deleted this post and even her Instagram handle.
But, this is not the first time when a celebrity deleted her social media account due to some unfortunate reasons. Celebs including Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and even Kendall Jenner quit social media but were not able to resist the temptation and came back. It will be interesting to see how long Cardi B will not come back to Instagram.
For now, let us take a look at the celebrities who quit social media and after how much time they came back.
Ed Sheeran decided to quit social media for a brief time in December 2015 so that he could enjoy the world. Almost a year after he came back to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but again left Twitter in 2017. Even his Twitter bio says: "I don't use this anymore, please follow me on teddysphotos on Instagram, lots of love x."
In November 2016, Amber took to her Instagram account and said that she is leaving social media for rest of the year. The model technically left the social media for a month and returned in 2017.
In August 2016, Justin Bieber posted a series of pictures with Sofia Richie with whom he was in a relationship if rumors are to be believed. The pictures resulted in hate comments from his fans, and later the star said that he would delete his account if he keeps getting the negative comments. Selena Gomez even jumped in the discussion and commented: "If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone."
After this, Bieber cleared the fact that he loves his fans but deleted his Instagram handle. The star came back to the social media platform in February 2017 and has been active since then.
Kendall Jenner unexpectedly deleted her Instagram handle in November 2016. The 21-year-old model came back to Instagram in just a week's time but did not reveal the reason behind her sudden disappearance.
Leslie Jones faced many racists and threatening tweets in 2016, and that's when she decided to quit from social media. But, just after three days, the comedian came back and tweeted, "Welp … a b***h thought she could stay away. But who else is gonna live tweet Game of Thrones!!"
In 2014, Rihanna quit Instagram after the platform accidentally disabled her account. One of the automated systems of Insta mistakenly disabled Rihanna's account and later apologised by accepting the glitch caused by them. Rihanna did not come back to Instagram for almost six months after the incident.
In 2009, when people were getting acquainted with Twitter, Miley called it quits on the social media platform because Liam Hemsworth asked her to do so. And she decided to make a come back to Twitter almost after three years.
