Halsey Deactivates Twitter After Cyber Bullying, But Is She Back?

Halsey has become synonymous with the Tumblr generation while she's struggling to gain approval from Twitter users. Over the weekend, the singer-songwriter deactivated her Twitter account with no reason or explanation behind it. However, it is not a surprise to Halsey's own fans, as she's always been outspoken about her problems with social media.

Fans who wanted to check out Halsey's on April were hit with a rude awakening. They were taken to a message that read that her page "doesn't exist." Some believe that Halsey deleted her account for no reason, while others think it's because of the trolls who slammed her for supporting fellow singer Kehlani, who attempted suicide last week after her involvement with two men went viral on the social media site.

"Come on now. I support Kehlani 111110% but Twitter obsessively tells me that I should have gone thru [and] killed myself," the singer reportedly tweeted before she deactivated her account. "Why are you turning something as serious as mental health into a competition? Low-key misogynistic."

Last month, the singer publicly pleaded to her fans waiting outside Radio 1. In the video below, Halsey's heard saying "please don't be mean to me" after fans remarked on Twitter that she intended to ignore them after her long day of press interviews. She told her fans to stop sending her mean messages on social media.

She has been outspoken about mental health and social media, and has encouraged her fans to do the same. If only most of them would listen to their pop idol.

In an interview with Billboard, she was quoted saying, "I talk to [my followers] like real f***ing human beings, because they are," but that "there's also a sense of entitlement, where they feel like they have the right to chastise me like they would a friend. And sometimes you want to be like, 'Who the f**k are you to say that?' "

In that same candid interview, Halsey opened about the time she was into a heroin addict and she tried to commit suicide.

"I was 17. He was 23, and he had a really serious heroin addiction. I had tried to kill myself. I was an adolescent; I didn't know what I was doing. Because I was 17, I was still in a children's ward. Which was terrifying. I was in there with 9-year-olds who had tried to kill themselves."
