Her lengthy post explained why the actress has never publicly come out before, knowing that she would be "accused of performative bandwagon jumping."
After her post, she said she would be "jumping off this hell app for a while."
"Twitter is brutal," her post is titled.
"This is why I never officially came out as queer. I added a rainbow to my name when I felt ready a few years ago, as it's not easy within the south Adian community to be accepted, and I always answered honestly if ever straight-up asked about it on Twitter.
"But I kept it low because I was scared of the pain of being accused of performative bandwagon jumping, over something that caused me a lot of confusion, fear and turmoil when I was a kid."
"I didn't come from a family with *anyone* openly out. It's also scary as an actor to openly admit your sexuality, especially when you're already a brown female in your thirties. This is absolutely not how I wanted it to come out. I'm jumping off this hell app for a while because I don't want to read mean comments dismissing this. You can keep your thoughts."
The post continued for two more pages, explaining how she understands that being queer doesn't qualify her for ballroom, but would love to use her platform to get the show off the ground.
