Actor LaKeith Stanfield’s Cryptic Instagram Posts Cause Concern Among Friends And Fans
LaKeith Stanfield, known for his roles in the Academy Award-winning film Get Out and the popular FX series Atlanta, posted a series of cryptic Instagram posts on Monday scaring friends and fans alike. The posts came one day before the actor’s 29th birthday.
One of the since-deleted posts showed Stanfield pouring liquor into an empty pill bottle. He 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.”
He wrote in another post, “Reality is boring and moves too slow and no one is trustworthy.” The actor captioned a third image, “Outside is crazy imma just stay inside form now on.”
Not only were these frightening and cryptic posts deleted, but all of Stanfield’s previous posts on Instagram are now gone. Before they were removed, fans took pictures of the posts and shared them on Twitter.

Comedian Patton Oswalt was one celebrity to express concern for Stanfield. He later tweeted, “Just got confirmation LaKeith is okay. Sorry if I overreacted. Okay getting off Twitter for awhile. Text or DM someone you haven’t texted or DM’ed in a while and tell them a cool memory you have about them. Good night.”

Stanfield added an Instagram post late Monday, assuring his fans and followers that he was well. “I’m ok everyone! I appreciate everyone checking in on me but I’m good. Im not harming myself. Much love.” He followed the statement with a red rose emoji. This post is now the only one on Stanfield’s Instagram account.
The actor’s publicists also posted about Stanfield’s condition. “Everyone! LaKeith is well. Thank you for the concern. We have spoken to him. The love you all have is appreciated.”
