LaKeith Stanfield says he is ‘OK’ after alarming social media posts

Actor LaKeith Stanfield assured fans Tuesday that he is “OK” after a series of troubling posts on his Instagram page.

“I’m ok everyone!” the 28-year-old actor wrote in a message. “I appreciate everyone checking in on me but I’m good. Im not harming myself. Much love.”

Stanfield, who starred in “Selma,” “Get Out” and “Knives Out,” also apologized to his fans “for making you worry.”

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, fans expressed concern over Stanfield’s wellbeing after photos of a pill bottle for Carvedilol, which is typically used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, appeared on his page. Alarming messages accompanied the posts.

“I like to be by myself because i can hurt myself and no one tells me to stop or fakes like they care,” one message read.

“Reality is boring and moves too slow and no one is trustworthy,” another read.

“Outside is crazy imma just stay inside form [sic] now on,” another said. “Bottoms up.”

On Tuesday, actor Patton Oswalt — who appeared on “BoJack Horseman” with Stanfield — told fans that the actor is “is okay” after he expressed concern.

“Just got confirmation Lakeith is okay. Sorry if I overreacted. Okay getting off Twitter for awhile. Text or DM someone you haven’t texted or DM’ed in awhile and tell them a cool memory you have about them. Good night,” Oswalt tweeted.

Stanfield’s publicity team, Platform PR, had also replied to Oswalt’s earlier concern: “Everyone! LaKeith is well. Thank you for the concern. We have spoken to him. The love you all have is appreciated.”
