“Farewell” Actress Awkwafina Bids Her Own Farewell, to Twitter: “I’ll see you in a few years– per my therapist”


Just now, beloved and unique actress from “The Farewell,” Awkwafina, posted two notices. One was an editorial but the next one seems to have been her own farewell — to Twitter

“Well, I’ll see you in a few years, Twitter – per my therapist. To my fans, thank you for continuing to love and support someone who wishes they could be a better person for you. I apologize if I ever fell short, in anything I did. You’re in my heart always”

The editorial is below.

Since Nora Lum, her real name, has erased all her Tweets going back two years, I don’t know what happened to hasten her exit. But obviously it was something bad, which is no surprise on the rough and tumble platform. What a shame. Lum is a sweetheart, and so talented. Someone owes her a big apology.

PS Lum just DM’d me: “I just need a social detox.” Hey don’t we all? Very healthy plan!
