“I get caught up and I spiral when I read things about me online. Also, ultimately it’s very detrimental to my mental state. So, I decided to take a step back. On top of this, delete the app.”
The actor Tom Holland opened up about the effects of social media. Precisely, on his mental well-being. Further, announced via the Instagram video that he’s having a rest.

Also, overwhelming” the 26-year-old actor in Spider-Man: No Way Home revealed on an Instagram video that was posted on Sunday. “I am a bit overwhelmed and spiral out of control when I see things that are negative about me on the internet, and ultimately, it’s damaging to my mental well-being which is why I decided to step back and uninstall the application.”

Many celebrities and fans expressed their love for Holland in the comments section and included Justin Bieber, who posted, “Love you man .”
