Being the incredible actor and person that he likes to portray himself as, however, Tom Holland also realizes that he has just shy of 70 million followers on Instagram. So, he didn’t just want to ghost his fans without explaining his decision to leave.

A quick scroll through his profile reveals Tom Holland hadn’t posted in a little over a month before announcing his departure. Moreover, the actor only really took to his Instagram once a month for the past several months. So, this isn’t an actor that was wildly engaged with his followers are super active on his profile. His departure announcement, however, sounds like he was someone who spent a lot of time browsing Instagram.
