Taryn Manning Is Trying to Take Back Her Social Media Meltdown

We’ve seen the last of Orange is the New Black, and some of the stars are taking that harder than others. Taryn Manning, who played Pennsyltucky, had an epic meltdown on Instagram where she went off on her agents and generally sounded suicidal.

Here’s the text of the now-deleted post, from Fox News.

Ahead of the premiere on Thursday, Manning captioned a photo of the “OITNB” cast on set, “I love you all so much. Have a great [premiere] tonight. I love this photo. I miss you all so much. I wish I could be there. Unfortunate uncontrollable circumstances that no one could help with have made it this way. When someone is crying for help from someone who is after your life and soul. Please listen.”

She continued, “This is for anyone who feels alone, terrorized by cyber criminals, cyber bullying, criminals with the intent to cause others distress and isolate them from life, for people who have lost everything due to another humans mental illness and smear campaigns. This is for you too so you don’t feel so alone. It even happens to people who seemingly have the resources to stop it too.”

She also blasted her professional team, writing, “This is for my ‘team’ of agents, managers and lawyers who didn’t do anything to help me. I forgive you though. I hope you’re happy, you know who you are.”

She got dropped by her publicist after that and probably figured out that she was going to have trouble finding work, so she decided, like a week later, that she needed to walk that back.

I believed that Jessica Alba’s account got hacked because I don’t think Jessica Alba believes that “retarded f*****s did 9/11.”

With Pennsyltucky here, well, she appears to be referencing an incident where she was stalked and why bother to hack someone’s Instagram just to make a post like the one Manning deleted. Now, I don’t know for sure she wasn’t hacked, but I know what I believe, and I think you probably came to the same conclusion.
