Silverchair’s Daniel Johns Says He’s Quitting Instagram Because Of “Cruel People”

Former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns says he’s going to delete his Instagram account “soon”, after supposedly receiving comments from “cruel people”.

Posting to Instagram early this morning, Johns captioned a blurry image with the caption, “A lot of you have been mean lately. To that I can only say I love you.”

Then, a few hours later, Johns shared an image of what he says is a doll, along with the following caption:

“I’m gonna delete this account soon but thanks so much to the nice people ! Really , really thanks ! And to the cruel people …….. it’s been an absolute pressure # there’s something bigger than all of us so love one another like a paper aeroplane that will land in a palm tree.”

The two posts, which you can view in full below, have received hundreds of comments from fans telling Johns not to delete his Instagram account, and to ignore the haters. At the time of writing, the account is still active.

Last week, Johns also shared an image of himself (above) giving the finger to the camera. The photo was captioned, “Feeling the love.”

In October 2016, Johns used his Instagram account to preview some new music from his studio, after releasing his debut solo album Talk in 2015.

A long-awaited collaboration between Johns and Empire Of The Sun’s Luke Steele is also “coming soon”.
