“What we’re seeing on Instagram is an imminent threat to teenagers. I am seeing self-harm,” Jennifer said on the program. “I’m talking about starvation… teenagers cutting themselves.”

“I’m on Instagram and I enjoy it. I follow friends and look at art sites and things like that,” Anderson said, but then added, “But I gotta say, it depresses me. I mean, I leave feeling worse than when I got on.”

He continued, “I feel worse about my own life, I cannot imagine what a teenager feels. I mean, I’m supposedly an adult. What some kid feels looking at other people’s lives and how their lives seem much more exciting than their own.”

Recently, Anderson revealed something surprising about him and his plans for his fortune.
