Daisy Ridley Reveals the Reason She Deleted Her Instagram

Daisy Ridley Reveals the Reason She Deleted Her Instagram

Daisy Ridley tries to keep a low profile while leaving Madeo restaurant on Thursday night (September 29) in Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old Star Wars actress recently opened up about why she chose to delete her Instagram account last month, citing backlash over an anti-gun violence post she shared at the time.

“I felt a pressure being on it,” she told Sky. “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. I’m 24. I have a lot of growing up to do. I have to deal with loads of stuff myself personally. For that to be projected with millions of people watching, that is like a bit of an extra pressure.”

Daisy said she reactive her account someday, though.

“I think some people handle it well,” she added. “Just right now it’s not for me, but who knows.”
