Spider-Man fans share support for Tom Holland taking a social media break

Spider-Man fans share support for Tom Holland taking a social media break

Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland has received an outpour of support since his video on stepping away from social media for his mental health. The MCU star is not new to taking a hiatus from platforms like Instagram. Though this time, it seems the online toxicity aimed at the star is the reason behind his departure. “I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming,” said the Uncharted actor in a video posted on the platform.

Holland has been quite inactive on social media in the past weeks and the Marvel actor addressed his absence to his followers on Instagram. In his long message, he stated – “I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online and ultimately it’s very detrimental to my mental state. So I decided to take a step back and delete the app.” Holland also shined a light on a charity that he and his family support.  Since then, Spider-Man fans have cheered on for his candid message and prioritizing mental health.

Holland has been one of the most talked about celebs in Hollywood since his successful run as Spider-Man. But after No Way Home, the actor’s future as the friendly neighborhood Spidey has remained unclear. The star has expressed his desire to see the role get diversified with other iterations as well.

“I would love to see a future of Spider-Man that’s more diverse — maybe you have a Spider-Gwen or a Spider-Woman,” he said speaking with People. “We’ve had three Spider-Mans in a row; we’ve all been the same. It’d be nice to see something different.”

Several high-profile stars have taken social media breaks in the past or have even entirely quit the platform after being subject to online harassment. In 2018, Kelly Marie Tran deleted all her Instagram photos after facing extreme bullying for her role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

On the bright side, Holland is still actively working on projects and is next expected to appear in the Apple TV+ series The Crowded Room, currently in production.
