Erin Moriarty RETURNS to Instagram with emotional message to fans… ONE WEEK after quitting platform when Megyn Kelly accused her of being ‘obsessed’ with plastic surgery

Boys actress Erin Moriarty returned to Instagram on Friday – just a week after she left the platform and promised an ‘extended, if not permanent break’.

Her decision to leave the social media network came after Megyn Kelly accused Moriarty of being obsessed with plastic surgery.

She has the Kim Kardashian lips, she made her nose so skinny, it looks like a pencil now,’ Kelly said. “I find it like a sign of mental illness.”

Moriarty, 29, hit back by dramatically announcing her departure from Instagram, explaining that she was not deleting her page but would stop posting because the public had ‘lost the privilege of this account’.

But this Friday, she relented, posting an Insta Stories message, expressing her gratitude to the ‘vulnerable’ fans who ‘came forward to talk to me’ and ‘stories that should be heard MUCH more than mine ‘ to share.

The caption was accompanied by a photo of her cradling one of her dogs while shooting a happy smile at the camera.

She began her message to fans by explaining that she was ‘dropping in to say 1) I love you all 2) v grateful to hold my little guy again.’

Moriarty added: ‘and 3) to those who came forward to talk to me and were vulnerable enough to share: you are fucking amazing. stories that should be heard MUCH more than mine. I do believe we have a long way to go. meanwhile: talk to me.’

The Jessica Jones alumna insisted: ‘I want to hear. safe zones, empathy and/or sympathy, and catharsis: a medicinal combination. trust me.’

Moriarty announced her initial departure from Instagram a week after Kelly sparked backlash with a recent podcast episode in which she took aim at Moriarty’s appearance.

Moriarty chose not to completely deactivate her Instagram account so fans could still see her scathing message directed at 53-year-old Megyn Kelly.

She told fans and haters alike that they had ‘lost the privilege of this account’.

Moriarty, 29, explained in a highly emotional statement that she is not deleting her social media account - but will instead take an 'extended, if not permanent' break from being online

The actress wrote: ‘The only reason I haven’t deactivated my account is because I’m going to leave it here. Otherwise, consider it disabled.

“I will not have access to it for an extended if not permanent break.

‘Social media is not something that came naturally to me and it was an investment of energy to connect with you.

“And I am appalled by the response, the reductive assumptions and the aforementioned video (of Kelly’s comments) which is a prime example of such harassment.

‘It broke my heart. You broke my heart. You have lost the privilege of this account.

‘The way this was spoken about, the way I was spoken to, I will not accept. I was in a hole and I was consumed by this personal situation at hand.

‘You never know what someone is going through, social media is a platform that is not representative of a whole person, and regardless there is no excuse for the words spoken directly to me or about me.’

Moriarty shared the reaction nearly a week after Kelly’s controversial podcast comments, saying she had ‘no idea what was going on’ amid social media frenzy as she goes through ‘one of the most challenging weeks of my life’.

‘And I specifically thought that as I was coming up this period – so stressed that I was BARELY able to eat and sleep – I thought ok, I’m going to come out this 10 pounds thinner and the verbal abuse/accusations will fly, ‘ she continued.

While Moriarty said she expected viewers to suspect she was on drugs or hit her with “a flippant ‘just eat a burger’ comment,” she was surprised by the hostile response that came instead.

“You learn to become Teflon and move on — I had NO idea what was going on this time,” she said in the post.

“Receiving a message about a disgustingly fake, counterproductive to the point of being ironically misogynistic video of Megyn Kelly commenting that way (sic) – to learn the widespread nature of this left me horrified.”

Although Kelly claimed in her appearance that the image of Moriarty, which the actress recently shared on her Instagram before it was deleted, was from “a year ago”, Moriarty said it was actually much older.

Moriarty, 29, branded Kelly's comments about her appearance as 'totally misinformed, inaccurate and looking for clickbait'.

She said the photo was ‘actually taken about a decade ago before I was of LEGAL DRINKING AGE’, and called on Kelly to ‘maybe do some research that would take 30 seconds’.

“How completely misinformed, inaccurate and clickbait seeking people who follow us and think are informed is appalling,” Moriarty said in the angry post, which contained a number of grammatical errors.

The comments in question came on Kelly’s podcast with journalist Michael Knowles earlier this month, where she accused Moriarty of ‘completely changing her face’ with plastic surgery.

She made the comments in response to Moriarty sharing the allegedly decade-old photo this month, while Kelly continued: ‘She has the Kim Kardashian lips. She made her nose so thin that it now looks like a pencil.

‘She has, like, what looks to me like cheek implants.

‘More and more young women are doing it.

‘It’s not about an objection to plastic surgery, it’s about an obsession with turning yourself into this false version of yourself… I find it like a sign of mental illness.

‘It is extremely disturbing. This is just a massive turn off for me. I really want to get into the heads of these young girls and say, ‘Please don’t do this,”’ she said.
