Ana de Armas' Viral Fan Page Returns, Account Owner Explains Why It Was Taken Down

The viral fan account created for Ana de Armas is back on Twitter after being deactivated just a couple days ago.

The account made headlines earlier this year for the funny tweets they would write about all of the times Ana was spotted by paparazzi. Back in April, they revealed that Ana actually blocked the account on Twitter, which made the account’s following grow even more.

The owner of the account has released a statement to explain why the page was taken down.

“This account has always been one of absolute support for Ana de Armas. This account would not exist in the first place if I was not a fan of hers. Let me emphasize that: I am a fan of Ana de Armas,” the statement began.

“The past few months have been a whirlwind ever since I applied a tone of constructive criticism to posts of candid photographs. This tone was so that I can take control of a narrative, even though it is not mine to begin with, and make people know that, as an Ana de Armas fan, I am aware that she should not have allowed herself to to be portrayed by the paparazzi in an unfavorable light during our current moment in time,” the statement continued. “Furthermore, this tone was also used to highlight the inaction with her platform for social causes that need attention. There has never been malicious or harmful intent with my account; I was just trying to get my frustration out there that my idol could improve and be a better public figure.”

“For the sake of my mental health, I voluntarily deactivated this account to take a short break. It got to the point where there was hate coming from all sides. For the first time, I felt that my account was a bubble for hate — even directed towards me, personally, as the owner of the account. Nonetheless, I want to take responsibility for the indirect nature of my posts allowing a breeding ground of bullying, misogyny, and hate speech in relation to Ana in the comments sections for her public behavior, especially involving the relationship she is in currently,” the account owner said. “I condemn all of that, and I hope that if you follow this account it is because you are a fan. Moving forward, I will be careful with what I post on the account, since I understand that not everyone shares my sense of humor and this account is clearly tied to how Ana de Armas is perceived by others. The mission of this fan account is not to tear her down, but to celebrate & respect Golden Globe nominee and movie star Ana de Arms. From now on, I will make sure to uphold that.”
