To avoid slipping into depression, Ayo Makun says he blocks people on social media.

The comedian said he makes it a point of duty to sever communication with people who insult him or his family.

Makun, star and producer of ’30 Days in Atlanta’,  said he would rather block unruly fans than getting upset.

“I don’t like blocking,” he said. “I don’t like shutting down avenues of communication.

“But if you’ve gone out of your way to insult me or my family over the things you cannot proof or defend, I will not give you the room to make me consider jumping into 3rd Mainland Bridge as an option in life.”

The 46-year-old comic said the action has nothing to do with the pride of being a celebrity.

“Blocking you only ensures I won’t have to accommodate any form of depression coming from someone who doesn’t care about how I feel,” he said.

“It’s as simple as getting up from your bed at night to put off the AC when you realise that you are beginning to catch cold.

“This has nothing to do with being a proud celebrity. it’s more about you knowing that I am equally human too.”
