Riled up by the constant trolling on Twitter, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has said she is quitting Twitter for a while. She says she will be taking a break from the microblogging website and wished peace and love to her fans before signing off.
“I’m going off Twitter for a while. It’s just too negative. Peace and love to all !,” she wrote in a tweet on Saturday. While Sonam did not give details about what specifically was causing her distress on Twitter, recurring trolls on her timeline could be a reason.

Recently, the actress came under fire due to a post where she complained about the pollution in Mumbai, over which trolls tweeted that she should travel by public transport if she has such issues.
“It’s because of people like you, who don’t use public transport or less fuel consumption vehicles. You Know that your luxury car gives 3 or 4 km per litre mileage and 10 /20 AC’s in your house are equally responsible for global warming. First, control your pollution,” the man had written.
And it’s because of men like you that women find it difficult to use public transport for fear of being harassed

In her reply, Sonam wrote, “And it’s because of men like you that women find it difficult to use public transport for fear of being harassed.” She was then trolled even more for assuming the man to be a sexual harasser without any proof or provocation.
The Veere Di Wedding actress, however, is currently active on other social media platforms.
