Responding to co-star Lori Petty's, who played Lolly Whitehill, comment under the post that said "I love you", Manning replied: “Thx bubs I know you do. And I love you. I am giving up everything to speak on how awful this career is and how awful we are treated. How I never knew if I was coming back yet I had seven optional seasons. How I didn’t even know how to plan my life, organize anything cause everything was a secret. Self-serving bullshit, for whatever sick agenda. How some of the dearest characters were just not there anymore. My pals. Fuck this show. This show hurt me so bad.”
Manning added that she has been the victim of several recent cyberattacks. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she said she would not attend the season 7 premiere of OITNB after a series of hacks targeted her personal information and finances, which has left her too uncomfortable to travel.
