Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd has announced that she has left Twitter.
Here’s what you need to know:
“Saying goodbye to my 211,000 Twitter followers,” Dodd wrote on Instagram on June 6, 2022. “This is for you, trolls. It’s like having a toxic friend. You’re happy to get off, but it’s not worth it in the end. There is too much hate and too many fake accounts on this platform. This is where the abandonment culture was born and I’m done. When @elonmusk.ab takes over I might be back, but until then you can find me here on @instagram #twitter #trolls #bots #spam #fake #losers #woke #bye”
Several fans chimed in to support the decision.
“Will miss you there Kelly! Thank god we have you here and hope you do more lives here,” one wrote.
“I wish everyone would do that! We must CANCEL CULTURE,” one fan wrote.
“Good for you,” someone wrote. “You do NOT need a platform that doesn’t recognize you AT ALL.. Your verification request will be ignored IF YOU ARE A PUBLIC PERSON! All they do there is tell lies and spread rumours, especially in the housewife community. There are so many trolls out there just trying to bring people down.”
“Kelly you have so many fans who love you for speaking the truth and these cupcakes can’t handle it!” another person wrote.
But just as many had negative reactions to her announcement.
“Get a life off social media,” one wrote.
“You’re the sellout. Getting that CLOT SHOT even though you had Covid. You’re sold out!” someone wrote.
“Abandonment culture is a myth,” wrote another fan.
Before Dodd deleted her Twitter, her husband Rick Leventhal shared a screenshot comparing Dodd’s unverified account to over 200,000 followers who got less than 9,000 views for a video and a parody account with almost 50,000 views for the same video.
“Hey @elonmusk @Twitter can you explain how my wife
@kellydleventhal with 209,000 followers has under 10,000 views for a video and @HeatherDumbrow with 3,000 followers has almost 50,000 views for the same video? Asking for a friend… #shadowban,” he tweeted.
Several fans commented on the tweet.
“Some people don’t like them that much? Why does that trouble your cold, dark heart?” A fan tweeted.
“Because nobody likes her! Go on her Twitter for two seconds and you will see.” wrote another fan.
“Did she put you up to it?” someone asked.
“How smart can he be? He married Kelly.” Another fan tweeted.
Dodd had previously tweeted that she was unable to get her confirmation badge back after changing her name on Twitter despite having a high following count.
Dodd’s tweets have often been controversial, including her tweet comparing the Uvalde shooting to 9/11, a tweet accusing Harry Hamlin of being gay, and Dodd was even banned from an event after a Joke she tweeted about transgender people returned to organizers.
