Iggy Azalea quits Instagram

Rapper previously decided to leave Twitter to focus on recording her new album

Iggy Azalea has quit Instagram with her management announcing that the rapper has extended her break from social media.

News of Azalea’s departure from the social network was announced yesterday (March 6). A representative for the rapper, who has 6.6M Instagram followers, posted the following message:

“Until further notice Iggy’s Instagram will be run by management. Iggy is taking a break from social media. She loves all her Azaleans!!”

Azalea previously explained that she decided to leave Twitter as it was making her so angry it was affecting the recording of her new album . Azalea announced her decision to take time out from social media earlier this month (February) following a number of incidents involving individuals attacking her online.

Earlier this year, Azalea responded to the criticism she has received for her role in hip-hop, claiming that it was “100,000 per cent to do with the fact I have a vagina”.

In December of last year, Azealia Banks accused the Australian of picking and choosing from black culture but ignoring larger issues, such as protests sparked by the deaths of African-Americans Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police.
