Just a few days ago, Minnie Driver was "mad about" Twitter.

But now, the About a Boy actress is leaving the social network, after being the target of "mean" comments that bullied Driver about her bikini body.

Driver, who has a son, Henry, 5½, had been snapped in a cute green two-piece while vacationing with her family in Miami, prompting an influx of hateful comments.

"You try being photographed when you don’t know it’s happening, when you’re on holiday with your kids," the actress Tweeted on Wednesday.

Although it's not clear what those negative comments were, the 44-year-old followed her Tweet with an announcement that she was quitting "this Twittersphere for a while" because it's "too mean sometimes, about your body, about your soul."

Not all the comments were hateful; fans also expressed their support for the actress in 140-character bursts following her announcement.
