Tom Holland claims he is avoiding social media in order to concentrate on his mental health.
The “Spider-Man: No Way Home” actor, who hasn’t been active on social media in recent weeks, briefly appeared on Instagram on Sunday to declare that he has removed Twitter and Instagram from his devices.
The 26-year-old actor claimed in the three-minute clip that social media applications had started to be “detrimental” to his mental health and that reading about himself online causes him to “spiral.”
He informed his 67.7 million followers, “I have taken a hiatus from social media for my mental health since I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming.”
“When I read stuff about me online, I get caught up in it and spiral, which is incredibly bad for my mental health. I therefore made the decision to back up and delete the program “explained he.
Holland, who is presently dating Zendaya, his “Spider-Man: Homecoming” co-star, also took use of his “very, very brief” comeback to promote the youth mental health organisation Stem4, which he supports through his company The Brothers Trust, which is based in the UK.
He continued, “I know that asking for help and receiving help isn’t anything we should be ashamed of. But there is an enormous stigma regarding mental health.
Holland thanked his followers for their “love and support” before announcing that he was “going to withdraw from Instagram again.”
I love you all and I’ll talk to you soon, he said.
Fans and other celebrities praised Holland for his openness in the video, including musician Justin Bieber, who added, “Love you man.”
Ricochet, a professional wrestler, wrote: “Man, you inspire so many people. Your physical and mental well-being, though, is what important, so take care of yourself and return stronger than before!”
