Orange Is The New Black's Taryn Manning claims Instagram post slamming co-stars was result of 'hack'
Orange Is The New Black’s Taryn Manning has claimed that she has been hacked after she slammed the cast of the Netflix show in a scathing post.
Manning, who plays Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett, appeared to hit out at the show in an Instagram message shared over the weekend, claiming that the “show hurt me more than anything has in my life” and “not one cast member cares about me.
While the post didn't name-check Orange Is the New Black, it did comment on "this show," in an apparent reference to the hit Netflix series.
However, she has since claimed that the post did not come from her, telling fans that her Instagram account was "epically hacked."
My account was so epically hacked. I am back in and I am sorry.

The initial post, shared on July 27, read: “This show hurt me more than anything has in my life and if this is what I have to do to push what I stand for I will.
“I have to speak out before anything happens to me. F*** fame! This show hurt humans. You will never truly know but many were hurt!”
The Instagram caption also claimed that Taryn's team had dropped her, but said “I do not need to ever work again in this town."
The length statement ended with: "Not one cast member cares about me. Just watch.”
Manning’s OITNB co-star Lori Petty (who plays Lolly Whitehill) commented, “Hey. I love you” along with some heart emojis beneath.
The star's account 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 b*******, for whatever sick agenda. How some of the most dear characters were just not there anymore. My pals. F*** this show. This show hurt me so bad.”
Many hours later Manning shared an Instagram post claiming she'd been hacked with a picture of herself with her co-star Uzo Adyba in their costumes.
"My account was so epically hacked," she wrote. "I am back in and I am sorry."
Manning played Doggett in the show since 2013 and the seventh and final season – which also stars Taylor Schilling – was released by Netflix on last Friday.
