This needs to stop...

Post Malone is having an incredible 2018. Not only has he released his Number 1 album Beerbongs and Bentleys but he has also collaborated with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign and Swae Lee and performed his own headline set at Coachella. In the space of three years, he has become one of the biggest artists in music today and racked up over 38 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

However, Post isn't immune to bullying. Despite his numerous accolades and chart feats, the 'Candy Paint' hitmaker is often the subject of online name-calling. Just earlier this year, numerous people took to Twitter to petition for Post to go on Queer Eye (before Karamo Brown defended him) and now the 'Rockstar' rapper has revealed that he's stopped using the internet on his phone.

Yes. Such are the insults that Post is subject to, that he's decide to avoid using the worldwide web as much as possible. The 'Ball for Me' star went on Twitter last night to open up about some of the abuse that has been hurled his way by legit media outlets. He wrote: "never googling myself ever again lol. got called a walking STD and a human sir [snot] bubble by 2 different publications."

Post then revealed: "deleted safari after lol." He also went on to add a supportive message for any of his fans who've been called names: "if anyone is having a tough time keep rocking guys. never let anybody tell you shit. you are awesome."

Our hearts. People have criticised Post about valid things before but coming for his appearance just because he doesn't fit a certain mould is not on. It's great to see that Post has used this as an opportunity to inspire his fans but no one should have to avoid the internet because of bullying no matter how famous they are.

We hope that the tolls calm down and let Post Malone be.
