Being famous comes with its consequences— one of them being having to see negative comments said about you online.

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

“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 said.

Please take the time to watch my video, and should you feel inclined to share it with anyone who it may resonate with — it would be greatly appreciated,” said Holland.
