Actress Daisy Ridley, who quit Instagram this year, says social media is bad for mental health.

“The more I read about teenage anxiety, the more I think it’s highly unhealthy for people’s mental health,” Ridley said, reports theguardian.com.

“It’s such a weird thing for young people to look at distorted images of things,” she added.

Ridley has been vocal about quitting social media. She left Instagram after facing backlash for sharing a post about victims of gun violence.

She will next be seen reprising her role of Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
