Why Kerry Washington is Quitting Social Media


By Victor Trammell

There’s a trend going around in Hollywood with celebrities dumping social media.

In the past few years, stars like singer/songwriter Rihanna and actress Megan Fox have taken temporary hiatuses from sites like Instagram and Twitter. The latest celebrity to quit social media is Scandal star Kerry Washington, 39. Washington used her Twitter and Instagram pages to make the announcement this week.

This week, the expecting mother posted a relaxing video of  waves washing up a heart drawn in the sand on a beach. Washington also posted the following message along with the video:

“It’s time for me to take a teeny break from social media. Feeling called to be a bit more quiet and still. Not sure how long it’ll last but don’t worry, I’ll be back soon enough.

This space has become such a community. I’m very grateful. Thank you ?
I’ll be thinking of youz and I’m sending love to you wherever you are… #MermaidGram” (Kerry Washington’s Instagram Page)

This move by Washington is definitely appropriate considering that she is expecting her second child with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha, a retired NFL defensive back who formerly played with the Oakland Raiders.
