Taryn Manning claimed her Instagram was hacked on Sunday, a day after posts were deleted, which had slammed the rest of the Orange Is The New Black cast.
‘My account is hacked and I am sorry for these messages,’ she wrote on the front of her page, adding an frowning face text emoticon. ‘I am back in now and was able to erase!’
After the account was offline for a time, the 40-year-old actress had put up a pair of posts Sunday, with one referring to the alleged hack: ‘My account was so epically hacked. I am back in and I am sorry.’

The second half of the post was focused on the show, its cast and the entertainment business as a whole.
‘This show hurt me more than anything has in my life and if this is what I have to do to push what I stand for I will,’ the post read. ‘I have to speak out before anything happens to me. F**k fame! This show hurt humans. You will never truly know but many were hurt!’

The post continued: ‘I do not need to ever work again in this town. I’ve been dropped by everyone for having a backbone. I was dropped because a person terrorizes me daily and them too. So my team, they just turn away. Like a car accident. Rubber neck but don’t help. F**k show biz. A disgrace.’
It ended with the statement, ‘Not one cast member cares about me. Just watch.’
Earlier this week, Manning made the decision to skip the OITNB premiere for the seventh and final season after revealing that she was recovering from a cyber attack that has caused her tremendous emotional distress. She also alarmed people when she shared another post where fans thought she may be suicidal, which she denied.
A slew of people again shared their concern for Manning in the comments section, along with their confusion over the posts. Co-star Lori Petty, who portrayed Lolly on OITNB, wrote, ‘Hey. I love you,’ along with three heart emojis.
A response from the page read: ‘Thx bubs I know you do. And I love you. I am giving up everything to speak on how awful this career is and how awful we are treated. How I never knew if I was coming back yet I had seven optional seasons. How I didn’t even know how to plan my life, organize anything cause everything was a secret.
It continued: ‘Self serving bulls**t, for whatever sick agenda. How some of the most dear characters were just not there anymore. My pals. F**k this show. This show hurt me so bad.’
