On July 3, Jennifer Love Hewitt quit Twitter. Why? She didn’t like the ‘negative vibe’ and ‘threats’ coming from followers on this platform. Will the world miss this famed actress’ tweets? Probably not – they can get the latest news about her through several magazines. Here’s a list of three other celebrities who should also quit social media and rely more on press releases and gossip rag interviews.
Isn’t it amazing that the same thing that makes a guy excel in one area is the very thing that brings him down in another. Baldwin is known for his passionate spirit. This quality fuels his acting roles – making him one of the best thespians to grace the big screen. But, this same attribute causes him to rant and rave saying things on Twitter that are hateful. Example: a gay-bashing tweet that has the public asking for Capitol One to let him go.
Fans cheered when American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino earned her GED in 2010. The idea that she’d become an adult without having a high school education was heartbreaking. Unfortunately, knowledge doesn’t necessarily equal enlightenment. Three years later, Barrino posted a message on Instagram referring to same-sex marriage as a sin. Consequently, this belief is common amongst evangelicals. The problem: this crooner has children out of wedlock – one of which was with a married man. As the scripture goes – let he who has not sinned throw the first stone.
What happens when a child star worth millions takes a break from Hollywood and gets on social media? She sends out ‘cray-cray’ tweets of herself in matted blond wigs and ridiculous clothing. This person also talks about her attraction for a rapper in hyper-sexual terms no one is comfortable reading. By now – you know the above context is about Amanda Bynes. Fans were used to seeing her overboard behavior on Nickelodeon; it was funny. Sadly, these days, her antics are just disconcerting making onlookers wish for some kind of intervention and a closed Twitter account.
In conclusion, Jennifer Love Hewitt paved the way for her celebrity peers to follow buy quitting Twitter. Only three of them are listed above, but others know what they do on social media is borderline too. Setting up profiles on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is fun – but only if the user manages them wisely.
