Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe has deactivated his Twitter account. Blythe had become increasingly well known in recent months for his controversial rants on the social networking service. He outlined his reasons for leaving with the following missive:
“Looking at twitter lately makes me realize that bothering to read some of this pure SHITE is, in fact, making me less intelligent. Therefore I shall be forced to remove it from my phone for a bit, thereby eliminating the temptation to glance at it on the shitter or in line at the Kroger in between cursing & putting away grocery carts.
I have too much shit to read & do to peruse even one more inane comment. I feel my cerebrum actually shrinking even as I type this, so I leave y’all to it for a bit with this piece of advice- go outside, read a book, help yer neighbor out (or even a stranger), write some music, poetry, lyrics whatever, call yer Mom or Grandma or whoever, go skateboarding, take a walk in the woods, stare at yet belly button & contemplate the meaning of the universe- WHATEVER. Just go enjoy LIFE for a bit. I will be.”
