Actress Taryn Manning gave her fans a fright after sharing a lengthy Instagram post yesterday about why she would not be attending the Orange is the New Black Season 7 premiere.

The post, which shows a behind-the-scenes photo of the Netflix show with Manning and her costars chatting, featured a long caption in which the Crossroads actress discussed missing the premiere. In addition, she explained that she’s scared due to cyber attacks.

“Unfortunate uncontrollable circumstances that no one could help with have made it this way. When someone is crying for help from someone who is after your life and soul. Please listen,” Manning wrote.

“No one deserves to have another person single handedly ruin their life to the point they are paralyzed and never leave in fear. I tried to tell everyone. No one cared.”

“This is for anyone who feels alone, terrorized by cyber criminals, cyber bullying, criminals with the intent to cause others distress and isolate them from life, for people who have lost everything due to another humans mental illness and smear campaigns,” the actress also said.

She also stated that her team of agents, managers and lawyers have not done anything to help her.

Lastly, she clarified that she is not suicidal but that she is crushed about her situation.

After publishing the post, Manning spoke with The Blast, revealing more about what’s happening to her.

In the interview, Manning said she is scared to travel and can no longer DJ. She claimed that her nine phones and six MacBooks have all been compromised by a cyber attacker.

I love you @ijnej @ttobie @lvinnecour @nerikyle #terrorized #runiedlife This is for anyone who feels alone, terrorized by cyber criminals, cyber bullying, criminals with the intent to cause others distress and isolate them from life, for people who have lost everything due to another humans mental illness and smear campaigns. This is for you too so you don’t feel so alone. It even happens to people who seemingly have the resources to stop it too. This is for my “team” of agents, managers and lawyers who didn’t do anything to help me. I forgive you though ✝️ I hope you’re happy, you know who you are. Amd you have a RO you violate daily and the other one you’re a disgrace. And no I am not Suicidal. You wish. I’m crushed and making a point how no one cares when you’re down.
