The 'Spiderman: No Way Home' actor currently has a stratospheric 67.7 million Instagram followers to whom he addressed his partial resignation from the platform in a video shared last Saturday. For mental health reasons, Holland feel it's crucial for him to take a break from the online world right now.

After 6 week Instagram silence, Tom Holland returned to the app over the weekend to discuss his mental struggles exacerbated by online abuse. Based on the hateful comments he has been receiving online, he's decided to take a break from social media.

In his video statement, Holland explains how social media can be detrimental, "I’ve taken a break from social media for my mental health because I find Instagram and Twitter to be overstimulating, to be overwhelming".

The unprovoked backlash that is second nature to anybody online these days can make social media a toxic place and Holland says "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".

In an effort to destigmatise mental health concerns, Holland posted the video to promote a charity called stem4 which aims to provide education for young people when it comes to mental health management.

"There is an awful stigma against mental health and I know that asking for help and seeking help isn’t something that we should be ashamed of but it is something that is much easier said than done."
