Actor LaKeith Stanfield has sparked concern over his well-being among his fans on Twitter. He received an outpouring of support on Twitter after posting a series of alarming posts on Instagram. His posts had left fans worrying for him for his disturbing posts.
LaKeith Stanfield, well known for his roles in films like ‘Get Out’, ‘Sorry to Bother You’ and ‘Knives Out’, uploaded some videos of him pouring liquor into a blood pressure pill bottle before drinking it. Along with the video, the actor had captioned the post, “I like to be by myself because I can hurt myself and no one tells me to stop or fakes like they care.”
In another post, the Atlanta star wrote, “Reality is boring and moves too slow and no one is trustworthy.” Additionally, he mentioned that he’d like to be inside because “outside is crazy.” The comedian Patton Oswalt then shared these posts on Twitter and wrote, “I have no way to contact Lakeith Stanfield directly. I’ve reached out to some friends we have in common. But can someone on here who knows him PLEASE reach out to him? Like RIGHT NOW? He’s posting stuff on IG that has me worried for his well-being. Thank you.”
Although the 28-year-old actor later deleted the video, people already saw them and were quick to reshare it on social media. They requested people who know the ‘Atlanta’ star to check on him. A user wrote, “Someone please check on lakeith Stanfield. he’s posting some really alarming and worrying stuff on his Instagram page. i’m extremely worried and scared rn. comments have been turned off on his page.”
