Just a few weeks after quitting Twitter, Iggy Azalea is now signing off of Instagram as well.

A message posted to her account on Friday read, "Until further notice Iggy's Instagram will be run by management. Iggy is taking a break from social media. She loves all her Azaleans!"

So, why is she stepping away from the popular photo sharing site? She didn't say, but the announcement came shortly after she posted the photo below and explained why she was upset by it.

"This is me standing in front of my home, which has a 6ft high blacked out fence around it. No one should be made to feel like their own home is a prison because even your garden may be grounds for a photoshoot," she wrote. "I really just want to urge my fans to be aware of what you are enabling when posting these pictures. It is illegal to post images of someone in their home or property with a long range camera. I'm asking in the nicest way possible to please think twice about that. You're home is supposed to be your place of peace. I just want mine to be that too same as everyone else."

It might have been that or it might have been the same reason that drove her to take a break from Twitter - all of the hate that is constantly being spewed at celebs.

When the "Fancy" singer quit Twitter, she explained that she was seeing too much hate and it was making her an angry person. "I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining," she wrote.

Along with the other 6 million fans who were following Iggy on Instagram, we're sad to see her go, but we applaud her for noticing that it had become such a negative thing for her and doing what she needed to do.
