Stephen Fry quits Instagram after being ‘hounded off’
Actor and comedian Stephen Fry has quit Instagram, saying he was “hounded off” the social media site.
Fry, who boasted almost a hundred-thousand fans on the site posted a blank image with the message: “Newspapers, as ever, suck all the joy out of everything. Closing down. It was, briefly, fun. Bye.”
He also posted an image with the words: “Hounded off. Goodbye”.
The QI host is well-known as one of the most prolific tweeters, amassing nearly 9 million followers.
However, he has announced that following his marriage to fellow comedian Elliott Spencer last year, he would take some time to himself off Twitter.
