'Wheeler Dealers' star is taking a break from social media

Ant Anstead said he has blocked more than 100 people on social platforms recently

Ant Anstead is taking a breather and stepping away from social media for a bit.

The 41-year-old reality TV host made the announcement on Instagram on Sunday, pairing it with a video of his wife Christina Anstead, who he married in 2018, as she walked down a boardwalk while he wishes her a "Happy Anniversary."

"I say, 'Happy anniversary' to the Wifey EVERY SINGLE SUNDAY! Drives her crazy," Anstead wrote.

But that was before he wrote what was really on his mind.

"The world is crazy right now. And for all the good things social media has it also carries a toxic element," he continued. "I have blocked over 100 people in the last few days. Humans are lashing out. And it saddens me!"

The "Wheeler Dealers" star then said he's taking "a little break" from social media and plans to use his extra time "to pamper the wife, annoy the kids, eat a vast about of carbs and watch movies that were made in the 1980s."

The post follows Anstead showing his support for Christina Arnstead's ex-husband, F"Flip Flop star Tarek El Moussa, who became engaged to "Selling Sunset" star Heather Rae Young last month.

Meanwhile, when HGTV announced the stars' engagement, Anstead commented: "Congratulations you two!! (What took you so long .... )."

"Err ... no thank you x," Anstead replied.
