Khloe Kardashian needs a break.

After negative comments and jokes about Kardashian and her husband, Lamar Odom, began trending on Twitter on Wednesday, the E! star said she's had enough.

"The negativity that I see, hear, or read today is out of control," Kardashian Tweeted Wednesday morning. "I'm signing off Twitter for a little so I can remain my positive self."

While the 26-year-old star didn't specify what exactly caused her to go Twitter-silent, one possible cause could be Odom's interview with Playboy magazine where he said, "I was kind of surprised at how intelligent she was," and also, "When people see us in person, they see Khloe's not small. I'm not small."

UPDATE: Well, that didn't last long! After about an hour with no Tweets, Kardashian returned with renewed optimism. With a plea to vote for Odom for the All-Star team, praise for Britney Spears's "Hold It Against Me" song, and excitement for American Idol, Kardashian must've realized that the old adage is right: Sticks and stones can break my bones, but names will never hurt me.
