JOE BONAMASSA announces he's quitting social media after comments aimed at his looks

22-11-2022

Joe Bonamassa announced his departure from social media. The reason? Some of the Instagram users insulted him.

In a now-deleted post on his Instagram page, Bonamassa explained what happened and how he decided to leave social media. He wrote (via Killer Guitar Rigs):

“So, after sleeping on this I have come to a conclusion. Last night I allowed a few clowns @rich_tones being one of them to cause me to go onstage angry. That is not fair to you the fans.

“Also, This isn’t what I signed up for 8 years ago. Social media has become such a distraction for me. This place feels like it has the maturity of high school and I fear I am gonna be provoked one day into saying something i might regret.

“So I’m leaving this wonderful place to the influencers and good looking. Enjoy it before it destroys your soul. I will see you in real life somewhere down the road and in Riverside tonight.

“Any posts on this page going forward will not be from me. Thanks for the 8 years. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘”

The user in question, @rich_tones, apparently commented on Bonamassa’s receding hairline. You can see the exchange in the screenshot below.
