Last month, Star Wars star Daisy Ridley abruptly quit Instagram. The internet assumed that online bullying drove her departure, because, well I mean people can get really out context. However, Ridley recently addressed her decision at the Student Academy Awards, according to Perez Hilton.
Her reasons for leaving the platform? It wasn’t about internet bullying. She just doesn’t want to bother with the pressure of social media. She told Hilton, “I felt a pressure being on it. I was like ‘I need to post. Oh my God, it’s been this many days’. It’s actually been kind of nice not to be on it.”
Anyone who runs a social channel will agree that Instagram takes work. For some people, social media is their work, so why blame Ridley for her Insta-exit.
She’s not the first star to delete her Instagram: In August, Justin Bieber deactivated his account after his fans trolled Sophia Richie, the singer’s new girlfriend.Instagram, as with all of social media, is a method of communication. Ideally, it’s an online conversation that serves as a panel for understanding and appreciation.
But when does the conversation become violent? The “pressure” to which Ridley identify herself is effectively one of the hundreds of fans asking for more. It is also a commonly-cited consequence of the intensity of social media. Daisy Ridley’s departure is just a symptom of a much larger issue: social media pressure.
