Over the weekend, Matt & Nick Jackson (The Young Bucks) announced they were leaving Twitter. Nick's account was deleted while Matt's account was purged and rebranded as "Young Bucks Official."
Papa Buck explained that the brothers needed a break from the "toxicity" of Twitter, which is why they decided to step away. In a post on Instagram, Matt elaborated on their decision to leave.
"First off, I acknowledge how ridiculous it is that I even need to talk about this, but it’s clearly a distraction. My brother & I decided to leave Twitter permanently a few days ago. We realized it took precious time away from our family who’ve already sacrificed enough time as it is. Also, we’ve noticed how it seems to stifle our creativity. Lastly, after taking numerous breaks this past year from Twitter, we found it to be healing to our mental health, so getting off completely was the next step. This will not change how we interact with our amazing fans, as we’ll continue to put out our best content online. Never be afraid to say hello to us whether it’s on social media or in person. Thanks so much for the support. We love you all very much. Happy holidays!"
The Bucks' decision to leave Twitter came after heavy online criticism of the AEW Dynamite main event segment, which saw a Dark Order Creeper throw phantom punches. The Bucks were able to find some humor in the segment, poking fun at it in the recent Being The Elite.
