Just one day after the final season of Orange Is the New Black premiered on Netflix, actress Taryn Manning went on an epic rant about the show in a now-deleted Instagram post that she claims was written by a hacker.
In the lengthy post, Manning wrote that the “show hurt me more than anything has in my life” and said that “not one cast member cares about me.”
She began by addressing several topics including human trafficking and racism, before explaining that her “life was stolen from a criminal who’s mentally ILL,” adding, “No one cares to help so I am dedicated to learning how to make a difference.”
“This show hurt me more than anything has in my life and if this is what I have to do to push what I stand for I will,” Manning continued. “I have to speak out before anything happens to me. Fuck fame! This show hurt humans. You will never truly know but many were hurt!”
The actress added: “I do not need to ever work again in this town. I’ve been dropped by everyone for having a backbone. I was dropped because a person terrorises me daily and them too. So my team, they just turn away. Like a car accident. Rubber neck but don’t help. Fuck show biz. A disgrace.”
Manning ended her caption by writing, “Not one cast member cares about me. Just watch.”
In response to her claims, her co-star Lori Petty commented, writing: “Hey. I love you.”
“Thx bubs I know you do,” Manning responded. “And I love you. I am giving up everything to speak on how awful this career is and how awful we are treated. How I never knew if I was coming back yet I had seven optional seasons. How I didn’t even know how to plan my life, organise anything cause everything was a secret. Self serving bullshit, for whatever sick agenda. How some of the most dear characters were just not there anymore. My pals. Fuck this show. This show hurt me so bad.”
The following day, Manning deleted the post and claimed to have been hacked.
“My account was so epically hacked. I am back in and I am sorry,” she wrote alongside a shot of herself and OITNB co-star Uzo Aduba.
