Actor Wentworth Miller, known for his role in the FOX series Prison Break, is speaking out after he learned he was the subject of a hurtful meme on social media.
Monday, Miller shared the following powerful post on Facebook:
Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme. Not for the first time.
This one, however, stands out from the rest.
In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons.
Miller's post, which has been shared more than 114,000 times, went on to include links to help anyone who might be struggling. Those include:
- American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
- Active Minds (Changing the conversation about mental health)
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
- The Trevor Project (Leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ young people ages 13-24)
- International Association for Suicide Prevention

The LAD Bible, who shared the meme and is screen-grabbed in Miller's post, has since apologized.
"We want to say we've got this very, very wrong," they said on Facebook. "Mental health is no joke or laughing matter."
