LaKeith Stanfield posts worrying videos to Instagram
On the night of August 10th-11th, actor LaKeith Stanfield caused a huge amount of concern for his 900,000 Instagram followers after he posted a string of worrying videos to the social media site.
The videos, which have now been deleted, appeared to show Stanfield pouring alcohol into a pill bottle according to Newsweek.
The concerning posts were made even more troubling due to the captions used by the 28-year-old actor, who turns 29 tomorrow, August 12th.
On one of the posts, Stanfield wrote: “I like to be by myself because i can hurt myself and no one tells me to stop or fakes like they care.”

One Twitter user wrote: “I hope LaKeith Stanfield is ok. This is alarming. Hopefully some good folks in his life are going to check on him ASAP.”
