  • Erin Napier regularly interacts with her Instagram followers, but recently posted a powerful caption about her recent efforts to prevent drama on the 'gram.

  • Following an increase in trolling incidents and hate comments, Erin has decided to shut off her Instagram comments until 2021.

Can’t we all just remember the golden rule and treat others how we want to be treated? It’s pretty safe to say that’s what Erin Napier wishes.

On Wednesday, July 8, the Home Town co-host took to Instagram to share a not-so-candid post of herself and her husband Ben, accompanied by a powerful caption about her plan to take a stand against harmful Instagram hate.

“Turning off comments till 2021 feels like a good move,” she began her post. “It’s getting harder to shoulder every opinion from every direction at all times about everything when everyone is freaking out constantly. There’s too much noise. It’s like this: We’re each making a bed and can’t see how far the sheet is hanging on the other side. We can’t see what we can’t see. So the best we can do is show compassion in our differences and understanding that we’re never going to be able to see all things the exact same way because our experiences are not the same. It’s nothing to freak out about. No need to shove. Have mercy. Show grace. Social media is for fun. So here, enjoy this totally candid and unposed image. (P.S. I am bad at analogies).”

While we’re unable to see how her followers felt about the social media move—given comments are shut off, of course—we bet many of them (ourselves included) are supportive of the choice, while others might be disappointed
