• Tom Holland takes a break from social media
  • The whole experience is not good for his mental health
  • He tries to explain himself to his fans

"Spider-Man" star Tom Holland (26) has chosen to turn his back on social media for the time being. The British actor says goodbye to Instagram and Twitter for the sake of his mental health.

Tom Holland has around seven million followers on Twitter and almost ten times as many on Instagram (as of August 2022). However, fans on social media might have taken things a bit too far and made the actor more than uncomfortable with their comments.

In an Instagram video, we see Tom confessing that he finds his massive online presence "overwhelming" and has chosen to delete his social media apps from his phone.

"So I've been trying to make this video for about an hour now, and for someone that has spent that last 13, 14 years, however long I've been acting…I cannot seem to say what I need to say without 'um-ing' and 'ah-ing' every five minutes" the actor begins to say in his video.

Tom Holland tries his best to explain the situation

Tom tries to explain his current situation to his fans as best he can:

"I have taken a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming..."

When he sees his name online, the star just can't help but read what has been written about him. This causes him to get into a mental state of mind that goes nowhere and only makes him feel uncomfortable.

Tom Holland explains himself in his Instagram video:  "Ultimately, it's very detrimental to my mental state, so I decided to take a step back and delete the app."
