AceShowbiz - Carlton Morton, who once appeared on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" as Cynthia Bailey's assistant, felt like giving up. He was overwhelmed by criticisms following his altercation with fiancee Diamond Jack on Netflix's "Love Is Blind" after he came out as bisexual.
"I'm really done. Thanks for the press requests, bookings, etc. I am not doing any press/bookings as of today's radio interview," he wrote before adding, "URBAN MEDIA has been the worst to me. Black lives matter until it's an LGBT Black life."
He continued, "Also, so called 'celebrity' friends on social media have every opportunity to defend my CHARACTER 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."
He added in the caption, "Thanks for the 3 of y'all who supported me in this. I feel alone and don't want any of this life anymore. I'm fighting ALONE. And it HURTS."
His post sparked concerns about his wellbeing. "Does anybody know his family? I'm concerned for his safety," one commented. Another wrote, "You beautiful soul, I understand feeling misunderstood and unaccepted. Please know you are not alone, you're a brave man and you will find the love you deserve." One similar comment read, "Don't let anyone steal your joy!"
When Carlton came clean about his sexuality on screen and had a big fight with Diamond, he got supports as well as criticisms. The majority of the critics took issues with him for not being honest with his then-fiancee from the start, something that she was also upset about.
He defended himself back then. "Because in the beginning, you will pre-judge me," he told her. "If I had told you on the first date, would you have given me a chance? You wouldn't have."
