Love Is Blind's Carlton Morton sparks concern from fans after worrying cry for help
4 March 2020, 16:29
Carlton Morton appeared on Netflix's dating show Love Is Blind, where he got engaged to fellow contestant, Diamond Jack, before breaking it off in an explosive on-screen row when he came out as bisexual.
With Netflix's Love Is Blind reunion looming, and viewers eager to see where the couples are now, one member of the cast has sparked fears for his safety, after posting that he 'doesn't want to be here anymore'.
Carlton Morton, who initially shacked up with Diamond Jack but they broke up because of a row over his bisexuality, has had a rocky time healing his relationship with his ex-fiancé and now fans are concerned, after he openly posted messages across Instagram and Twitter about just how low he was feeling.
In an Instagram Story post, he wrote: ‘I’m really done. Thanks for the press requests, bookings, etc. I am not doing any press/bookings as of today’s radio interview.’
‘URBAN MEDIA has been the WORST to me. Black lives matter until it’s an LGBT Black life,’ Carlton added.
‘Also, so called “celebrity” friends on social media have every opportunity to defend my CHARACTER yet they don’t! I’ve argued for tons of people. ‘Y’all see ANY of those people speaking up for me? I’M DONE.’
After signing off his final post with a heartbroken emoji and 'goodbye everyone', fans started reaching out, urging him that they were supporting him, despite criticism in the media about what happened between him and Diamond.
He first received mixed feedback from the show when he and ex fiancé Diamond broke things off when he came out as bisexual to her. Some people feel he should have told her before they got engaged, while others acknowledged what a big step it was for him to take, and she shouldn't have flown off the handle.
In a recent interview with CNN, he said: "It's honestly been tough because it's something that I was not prepared for. People say all the time, 'Well you should've known people would react this way,' but it's different when you're receiving death threats."
He also said in a now-deleted tweet that he'd 'cried for help since Feb 13' and he felt 'extremely alone and unsupported', while Lauren ‘LC’ Chamblin, who also appeared on the show, replied to the post saying: ‘Left you a voicemail and texted you earlier today. SO many people care, you just have to let them. Always here for you if you need anything.’
We hope he gets the support he needs.
