Heartbreak High star Chloe Hayden reveals ‘devastating reason’ for quitting social media

Heartbreak High star Chloe Hayden has announced she is quitting social media after receiving death threats online.

The Australian actress, 26, told her Instagram followers on Sunday, her management now will be monitoring her social accounts.

‘Due to recent events, moving forward, my team will be managing and monitoring all my social accounts,’ she began.

‘Over the last year, I have been inundated with several dozen death threats, detailed suicide prompts and horrific, intricate abuse each and every day.’

She continued: ‘It’s inescapable and is deeply effecting my mental and physical well-being.’

Chloe went on to say ‘her team will be monitoring and reporting all hate speech and threatening language to federal authorities.’

‘It is vital for you all to know that this behaviour isn’t tolerated. I’m aware multiple of you have received similar messages, and I urge you to do the same,’ she added.

Chloe said her platform was always ‘welcoming, safe and an open haven’ but these ‘values aren’t shown right now’.

‘My connection and communication with you all is something I’ve always found so special, and that I cherish and value so deeply; but is something we don’t currently have the privilege of doing,’ she continued.

‘My hope is we can get back to that, but for now, in order to keep my community and myself safe, it is vital for me to take these steps.’

Chloe has become one of Australia’s brightest rising stars having even stared her own podcast ‘Boldly Me’ on Nova.

She also has a book called ‘Different, Not Less’ and has worked tirelessly to promote inclusion and diversity.

The star hit the headlines in February after she was denied access to the sensory room at Marvel Stadium at Harry Styles concert in February.

Taking to social media at the time, Chloe said: ‘I’ve spoken with the CEO of Marvel Stadium and we’ve discussed steps forward.

‘A second sensory room is being built, and they have committed to retraining their staff. I plan on keeping them accountable for both.

‘Don’t you ever say that raising your voice is futile.’
