Tom Holland takes a break from the Internet
Being one of the most followed stars on the internet, and being so close to Euphoria star Zendaya, he is bound to feel mental exhaustion. In a video released a few hours ago on his Instagram account, the actor commented on the same, he wrote the post’s caption:
“Hello and goodbye… I have been taking a break from social media for my mental health… Love to you all, and let’s get talking about mental health“
Good for Tom, well deserved break. Social media has taken the turn of bullying others online without consequences. Glad Holland is taking a step back from these people. Much love ❤️

Whether we will be seeing the actor back on social media is not known, but in the end, the decision is up to him. Having worked relentlessly for the past few years and the expected announcement of Spider-Man 4, this is the best time for the actor to take a break.
