Carlton Morton, star of Netflix’s hit dating series, “Love Is Blind,” is having a pretty hard time after the show premiered.
You may recall, Carlton made a love connection and proposed to Diamond Jack, but their relationship when up faster than kerosene drawers in a fireplace when he revealed he was bisexual AFTER she accepted his proposal.
Carlton received a lot of backlash and death threats on social media, as did Diamond.
At one point, he took to Instagram writing:
I’m really done. Thanks for the press requests, bookings, etc. I am not doing any press/bookings as of today’s radio interview. URBAN MEDIA has been the WORST to me. Black lives matter until it’s an LGBT Black life.” “Also, so called ‘celebrity’ friends on social media have every opportunity to defend my CHARACTER,” he went on to write, “yet they don’t! I’ve argued for tons of people. Y’all see ANY of those people speaking up for me? I’M DONE.
See the original post below:
It appears some interpreted the post as a cry for help or Carlton alluding to harming himself and a 911 call was placed for a wellness check.
TMZ caught up with Carton Morton in Atlanta on Friday and he said that he plans to get therapy to help him through this tough time.
I’m ok. I had a very tough day and some people apparently wanted to check up on me and that’s all I can really say about it right now. It’s kind of embarrassing. I just feel like the world hates me right now.
Actually, I’m heading to therapy right now just to talk about my mental health it’s very important. I feel like therapy is everything and it’s something that in the black community we don’t really talk about, so it’s very important right now to go to those types of sessions.
I want the fans to know that I’m dealing with this the best that I can. Obviously, every day is new, waking up to death threats in my DMs, social media comments, just feeling again like I have to rally behind myself constantly.

Carlton and Diamond have since made peace on the “Love Is Blind” Reunion Show.
I wish him the best.
