Seann say there was then a second wave of the backlash, when people thought he was trying to make himself out to be the victim.

He decided to quit Twitter because it was too much. Instead of trying to be the victim, he was answering questions about mental health.

Seann said: “It’s like, you should be happy that I had a terrible time, just enjoy that and stop getting more angry at me”.
