LOS ANGELES, April 11 (UPI) -- Minnie Driver has announced her intent to take a break from Twitter after people body-shamed her.

The 44-year-old had become the subject of ridicule earlier this week after she was photographed on vacation with her son Henry in Miami. The actress and mother looked healthy in a blue bikini, but many tweeted comments that denigrated her body and criticized her looks.

The star expressed shock over the photos on her Twitter Wednesday.

She later posted that she plans to take a break from Twitter because of the negative comments.

Driver will next appear on film in Blackbird. The movie debuts in theaters on November 14.
