Spider-Man star Tom Holland reportedly took time off from social media last week after he was seen struggling with depression. In recent months Holland has been open about how much he relies on social media for his personal well-being and what he calls a “crutch”. He said at the beginning of 2019 that he was feeling anxious and had lost hope in his career. He said he felt “depressed” and “unmotivated”. In February he revealed that he had turned down movie roles for financial reasons and for fear of becoming typecast as another superhero. He told GQ magazine: “I don’t want to do it forever.”

Tom Holland’s father Peter confirmed that his son was suffering from anxiety and depression. His mother Julia added that they were trying to help him cope with his problems but that it was hard work. She told the Mail On Sunday newspaper: “His social media use is a crutch for him. That’s not what we want for him.”

“It’s really difficult,” she added. “He’s got to look after himself. But I’m proud of him for doing it. He does have anxiety and depression.”

Peter said that his son was dealing with the pressure of being famous and having fans following him around. He added: “The paparazzi and people stalking him are something we’ve never dealt with before. And it’s just getting worse.”

Tom Holland has continued to tweet regularly since he left social media last week. He has posted several videos for his fans to enjoy including clips from Marvel movies. One video showed him playing guitar and singing along to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off.

Many stars, including Tom Cruise and Oprah Winfrey, have spoken out about their struggles with depression. Last year Tom Cruise opened up about his battle with depression and admitted that he had considered suicide. He wrote on Instagram: “Depression is no joke. If you feel depressed, please reach out. You’re not alone. There is always hope.” Others who suffer from depression include Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Mariah Carey.

Mariah wrote in her blog post: “You’re not alone. Depression doesn’t discriminate.”

Tom Holland may be taking some time away from social media but he did tweet last night saying he was going out to eat with friends.

Tom Holland’s mom Julia said that she hoped he would return to Twitter soon and give his fans some updates. She said: “We love him so much. We hope he comes back soon.”

Despite all the talk about his mental health and how much he relies on his followers, Tom Holland only has 10 million followers on Twitter.

Tom Holland first became known for playing Spider-Man in the blockbuster film series Spider-Man (2002).

He went on to play Tony Stark/Iron Man in Iron Man 2 (2008), Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and Civil War (2016).

He starred alongside Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth in Avengers: Infinity War (2018).

After filming finished, Tom Holland returned to New York City where he lives with his parents. He was spotted leaving his house wearing a black T-shirt and jeans while carrying two bags.

Buttigieg to airlines: summer flight cancellations ‘unacceptable’

As US President Donald Trump continues to take aim at his former administration’s travel ban, Mayor Pete Buttigieg wants to make sure that the president knows what he thinks about airline cancellations. On Tuesday (March 4), Buttigieg tweeted out a link to an article published earlier in the day titled “Trump plans to block flights to Europe.” In the article, the author writes that “President Donald Trump said he would soon issue an executive order blocking U.S. carriers from flying to Europe,” adding that the move “came after days of criticism over his travel ban targeting seven Muslim-majority countries.”


The piece continued: “However, officials say they have not been given any details yet on how the ban would work, or whether it would apply only to U.S.-based carriers. A White House official told Reuters that the plan was still being finalized.”


In response to the news, Buttigieg shared a tweet from John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) in New York City, asking: “@VP @realDonaldTrump I’m worried we’re going to start seeing some flights cancelled today. Do you want us to do that?” He added a link to the full story that accompanied the tweet, which reads: “Airline CEO says Trump’s proposed EU travel ban could cause $50M worth of canceled flights.”

“I know the cancellation of summer vacation trips would be unacceptable if it were coming from anyone else. And if you’d asked me last week, I’d have agreed. But I don’t think any American should be forced to choose between their family vacation and our country. That’s why I am absolutely opposed to the idea of putting people who follow our laws around the world on a blacklist simply because of where they live,” the mayor wrote.


He concluded: “And if you’re wondering why I’ve never supported Trump’s racist policies before now, let me explain. We shouldn’t have to pick between protecting America’s values and protecting the rights of those abroad.”

Buttigieg to Airports: Cancel Flights to Europe


Mayor Pete Buttigieg is calling on Americans to cancel their flights to Europe amid reports that President Trump may attempt to implement a travel ban affecting European nations.


In a tweet posted Tuesday, March 4, Buttigieg shared that he is “concerned we’re going to see some flights cancelled today. Does the president want us to do that? If so, @VP I’m worried we’re headed down a dangerous path here.” He then linked to a Washington Post article featuring the same headline.

When asked by Twitter user @briandean_ about Buttigieg’s stance on the matter, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor replied: “John F Kennedy airport JFK/EWR. Not a good place to put someone whose travel status is unknown. No need to add to the anxiety of folks already nervous about international travel. Thanks.”


Buttigieg has expressed opposition to the Trump Administration’s recent travel bans directed towards several Islamic majority countries, including travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and Chad.
To date, Buttigieg has not commented publicly on the latest reported travel ban proposal. He did, however, voice his concerns over the original travel ban issued on Jan. 27, 2017.


On Jan. 27, 2017, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Order 13769 entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The order indefinitely suspended the admission of refugees and barred entry into the U.S. for 90 days to citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Libya*, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen. The order also placed restrictions on all refugees entering the U.S.

  • – On Feb. 2, 2019, the Department of Homeland Security announced that the U.S. government had removed the Refugee Admissions Program cap for the fiscal year 2020. As a result, the number of refugees allowed to enter the U.S. from the above countries increased from 50,000 to 110,000.
