Outlander’s Sam Heughan is one of the household names in the television industry. He is quite interactive on social media and communicates with his fans and followers. Recently, the star took to Instagram and Twitter and posted a lengthy story detailing ‘six years of constant bullying, harassment, stalking and false narrative’. This turned out to be Sam Heughan’s biggest candid revelation following the Starz drama in 2014.
The Scottish star revealed that he has been falsely accused of manipulating his fans, being a closet-homosexual, trying to mislead or extort them for money and disregarding coronavirus advice. Sam Heughan’s last comment was related to his decision to stay in Hawaii, where he went for a vacation before people started to self-quarantine. Talking about the same, he assured that he is safe, isolated and not a burden to the locals.
It was shocking when he addressed that his co-stars and close ones have been subject to ‘shaming, abuse, death threats, sharing of private information and vile, false narrative'. Sam Heughan also signalled that there was an active legal case against those who have been harassing his friends and family. Even after six years of painful experience, the Outlander star signed off with a kind message for his fans and urged them to stay safe.
Just a few hours after his emotional tweet, the hashtag #WeStandWithSam started to trend. Besides his co-stars and friends, multiple Outlander fan accounts lent their support to the actor. Have a look at their tweets.
