Aaron Paul is taking a much-needed rest.
The “Breaking Bad” star announced Monday that he will be taking “a break from all things social media.” He gave no specific reason, but cited the need to “focus on work and family.”
Paul isn’t the first celeb to say goodbye to social media, temporarily or otherwise. Back in June, “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown quit Twitter due to trolls harassing her.
“Call Me By Your Name” star Armie Hammer took a temporary break from Twitter after a spat with a BuzzFeed journalist over an article written about him.
Earlier this year, Kanye West notably stepped away from social media, returning to spark controversy numerous times since.
In September, Selena Gomez announced on Instagram that she would be taking a break from social media and hasn’t posted since, aside from a few promotional tweets in early October.

Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.
Most recently, Pete Davidson deleted his Instagram account following his split from Ariana Grande and this post that worried his fans: “I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so.”
