Muslim Black Lives Matter activist gets real about mental health on Twitter
Blair Imani has spoken out about prioritising her mental health
Muslim American activist, Blair Imani, known for campaigning for Black Lives Matter and gender equality rights, has taken herself off Twitter, after getting real about mental health.
"My mental health has to come first," Imani said in one tweet.
"Hello everyone, I am going to be offline for a while. I’m having a lot of paranoia and suicidal thoughts. My mom is going to take me to the hospital so I can be on suicide watch. Thank you for your patience at this time," she wrote in a tweet on January 20.
Imani is still engaging on Instagram Stories directly, but is only engaging on Twitter via her manager, Mariel Limon, who will be running her account until February 1.
'I need to get something off of my chest'
The "paranoid" breakdown came two days after Imani claimed that she had been "manipulated" by an "FBI agent" in a Twitter thread dated January 18.
Imani posted on her Insta story that she is still appearing at Period Con on January 26 and 27 in New York City.
