Iggy Azalea's had enough!

The Australian rapper is walking away from social media following paparazzi pictures of her butt in a bikini, and the subsequent online criticism she received for her normal, less-than-perfect appearance.

The photos, which showed Azalea revealing her curves in a pair of tiny bikini bottoms while on holiday with her boyfriend Nick Young, led to some unkind comments from Internet users who slammed her voluptuous appearance.

The "Fancy" singer hit back at critics via Twitter on Wednesday, Feb. 18, vowing to quit social media for the foreseeable future, to avoid being drawn into a host of negative emotions.

"Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol" the singer wrote.

"I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that," she continued. "To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling," she added.

"But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining," she went on. "My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out!" she said (before adding one more comment that the Internet is "the ugliest reflection of mankind that there is.")

This isn't the first time Azalea, 24, has run into trouble in the social media arena. Back in December she became embroiled in a bitter battle with Azealia Banks, who accused her of "making fun" of race issues.

Evidently feeling enraged by the accusations, Azalea fired off a stream of tweets in Banks' direction. "You're poisonous and I feel genuinely sorry for you," she wrote at the time "It's obvious at this point you are a MISERABLE, angry human being. Regards!"
