When Joss Whedon exited Twitter Monday apparently because of some deranged carping over his superhero sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the filmmaker not only became the latest bold-faced name to quit the social-media site, he became the latest to do so for a pretty damn-straight good reason.
Here are top five most legit concerns that have turned stars off Twitter:
1. It's a den of harassment and abuse.
Actress Zelda Williams took a break from Twitter on the day her father, Robin Williams, committed suicide — not because of the family tragedy, but because two users sent her links to faked death images of the iconic comic.
"I feel sick. Bye Twitter," the wife of singer John Legend wrote. "Taking my talents to Instagram."
Whedon's name can be added to this list if a tweet by fellow Marvel director James Gunn ( Guardians of the Galaxy ) is any tip-off.

Bruce Jenner is trending (but not always selling). Justin Bieber is huge (if the cause is right). Harrison Ford is just plain hard to get.
If ever there was a volatile market, it's celebrity memorabilia. Some days you're hot — as Jenner Wheaties boxes reportedly were in the wake of the Diane Sawyer interview about his gender transition. Some days you're cold—as a signed football by Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was at a Chicago auction this spring.
And some days you're just — well, you don't know what you are. Sure, maybe a seller thought he or she could move a Miley Cyrus autographed color print for $500 on eBay, but the listing closed with no takers.
"Major movie stars and major rock stars fetch more than anybody," Maddalena says.
As far as a driver of value goes, perhaps nothing beats scarcity.

Bieber attended Rihanna's afterparty at Up & Down in the West Village and, according to guests, he was the life of the bash. "It seemed like everyone wanted to be at his table," a source tells Yahoo. "And he was hardly hurting for female company."
Justin's most famous ex, Selena Gomez, was in attendance, as were all of the ladies the Biebs has most recently been linked to: Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, and model Shanina Shaik (who was Bieber's date for the aforementioned boxing match Saturday). So which gal did he spend his time with? Well, all of them.
"Justin and Selena said hello and talked briefly, but it looked like it was just a friendly exchange," says the partygoer, adding that Gomez stuck close to gal-pal Lily Collins. "[Justin] and Kendall hung out together and danced with a group of friends for a while."
As for who was really on Justin's mind all night, he may have given a clue early on. On the way out of the main event, he told TMZ, "Yo, Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball."
Your move, Selena.

Taylor Swift kicked off her 1989 World Tour Tuesday in Tokyo and among the thousands of fans in attendance was her biggest one: her mother.
Despite having recently been diagnosed with cancer, Swift's mother Andrea Finlay was photographed arriving at Tokyo's Narita International Airport alongside Taylor's father Scott. During the concert, several fan accounts posted photos of Andrea and Scott inside the arena.
Swift's parents are usually a staple at her tours, but in April, when Taylor wrote about her mother's cancer diagnosis, she warned fans that her mom wouldn't be at as many of her shows as usual, due to her illness.
"She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour," Swift wrote of her mother. "She’s got an important battle to fight."

What's up with Kevin Bacon's face? The actor shared a crazy unrecognizable photo on Twitter, sending his fans and followers into a tizzy.
The photo was matched with a (relatively) non-descript caption: "Greetings from the UK!"
The actor didn't comment on the obvious and jarring difference in his face. For the record, only back in late February, it looked like this:
Bacon, 56, has maintained a relatively lean appearance for the duration of his career, so the sudden and drastic change understandably prompted his fans to express their shock and concern. Some took to Twitter and made the requisite Bacon jokes:
@kevinbacon you need to stay off the bacon and maybe be Kevin salad for a change
@kevinbacon Kevin Extra Bacon.
@kevinbacon too much Bacon?
Others were simply confounded.
@kevinbacon Wait, what?
@kevinbacon WHAT IS THIS?

There are plenty of Ryan Gosling tributes out there in the vast world of the Internet. There's Feminist Ryan Gosling, that video of a young Gosling dancingrather provactively, and the viral phenomenon "Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal" a collection of Vines consisting of Gosling's trademark serious, smoldering face mashed-up with Ryan McHenry feeding him cereal, creating the appearance that Gosling just won't oblige.
Earlier this year, McHenry had captured a moment of Ryan Gosling on BBC1 and posted it to YouTube, in which Gosling admitted he did in fact, love cereal, contrary to what McHenry's Vines might lead someone believe. The two had also interacted on Twitter this past April, joking about Gosling's love for cereal:

Monday night's hot ticket was New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, but for those who didn't get a highly coveted ticket to the fashion event of the year, at least there's the internet and its creative reactions to what the stars wore.
Rihanna's massive train was a particular favorite.
It reminded most people of food.
There were also comparisons to Belle.
Anne Hathaway came dressed in Star Wars Day-appropriate formalwear.
And Sarah Jessica Parker's headwear made quite the splash.

1. Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs Make First Official Appearance Together The Met Gala is an event where couples like to make their red carpet debuts and such was the case for Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs. The Twilight actor, 28, and British singer, 27, attended the soiree and proudly posed for photos together for the first time since they began dating last September. News of their engagement leaked in early April.
Twigs showed off her new bling in a Christopher Kane dress while Pattinson looked dashing in a black tux. Oh, and the betrothed duo didn't have to worry about running into Pattinson's ex Kristen Stewart either. She is currently in Seoul, South Korea, for Chanel's annual resort show.

If you had plans to name your future children Kylie or Kendall, you might want to consider something else. Especially if you think he or she is going to have a predilection for acting/entertainment/fashion/posing naked and becoming a viral sensation.
The Insider With Yahoo can confirm Kylie and Kendall Jenner filed for several trademarks on their respective monikers last month.
Kylie is attempting to trademark both her full name for use on items like tote bags and such, as well as just "Kylie" for " entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture; entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a celebrity, actress and model." B ack in August, the 17-year-old filed to trademark "Kylie's Lip Kit ... for The Perfect Pout," so you might want to rethink your poorly made plans for starting a business based around the masochistic #KylieJennerChallenge.

The 19-year-old daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger has left SOBA Recovery Center in Malibu, California, and will continue her treatment at home. Baldwin recently checked out of the facility after undergoing three weeks of treatment for emotional trauma, but will still participate in SOBA's programs, a source tells People.

She added, "Someday I'll feel ready to share my story."
It was her uncle Daniel Baldwin who introduced Ireland to SOBA Recovery Center.
"I love Ireland very much. I am so proud of her for finding the courage to take these very important steps in her life," he told People . "SOBA is the best possible place for her to be."
