Ariana Grande is taking a break from social media.
The singer announced the news on Monday after a Twitter follower shared a picture from Grande's Snapchat account.
"Yeh ! i'm prolly gonna post on der for a little while & take a breather from twitter & ig for a little," she wrote. "just sometimes can't help but bump into some negative sh-t that really can bum u out and it's not worth it honestly. promised i'd always tell you. i love u sm ! be well & happy."
The star has already taken the initial steps by disabling the comments on her Instagram account.
The news comes shortly after her fiancé Pete Davidson deleted all of his photos from his Instagram account. The move came after the Saturday Night Live star received backlash for writing "what a cutie" on a photo of Grande's grandfather, who recently passed away.
"Are you guys all insane? I was talking about how cute her grandpa is. What's wrong with that?" he wrote. "You guys will really look for anything to attack people. It's sad."

"Guys seriously," he commented on an Instagram post in which the duo expressed their love for each other.
So, it looks like the two are dodging the negativity by avoiding the social platforms completely.
The real question is, will this social media hiatus last?
