Arrow star Stephen Amell posted a new Facebook video on Wednesday afternoon, letting everyone know he's taking a social media break. It might seem out of nowhere, but the issue stems from the drama surrounding Ahmed Mohamed, a ninth grader who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school. Many high-profile figures showed support for Ahmed on social media, but Stephen, whose wife and extended family are from Texas, tweeted that stereotyping Texas isn't right, either. In the face of vicious backlash, he went on to clarify his words with a series of tweets, and in the above video, he concluded with his need for a self-imposed break. Stephen's point may be valid, but as he stated in a later tweet, "debates in 140 characters don't work."
