Stokes returned to social media about an hour later, saying it was ‘f**king absurd’ that he couldn’t post a photo of himself with his sister ‘without death threats’
“The fact that I can’t post a photo with my little sister without death threats is just absurd,” he wrote in a follow-up post about an hour later.
‘Have a grip. Family always comes first and at the end of the day if you don’t know my sister and have the audacity to send me horrible messages then go ahead and click unfollow.
Stokes then hinted that he would take a break from social media after the online attacks.
“I will forever be a person who ALWAYS puts my family first. That being said, and with that stupid shit. I’m out. See you when I see you,” he concluded.
Some social media users mistakenly assumed Walker was his new love, which likely led to the ‘awful messages’ he received
Stokes was last linked to his Outer Banks co-star Madelyn Cline (pictured on the show)
Stokes was most recently in a relationship with Cline, 24. The duo, who play John B and Sarah Cameron on Outer Banks, first sparked dating rumors in 2020, after sharing they were in quarantine together.
They confirmed their relationship later that year and went on to accept Best Kiss for Outer Banks at the 2021 MTV Movie and TV Awards, where they shared a passionate kiss on stage.
Stokes and Cline called it quits months later, with a source telling People in November that “they’re definitely broken.”
The following month, Stokes was spotted passionately kissing a mystery woman at Eden The Lounge in Orlando, Florida, in a viral video obtained by TMZ.

The former couple hold hands in the footage, which was also shared by Stokes. “It was our start to filming,” Cline told Us Weekly of the photos.
Val Bragg, who claimed to be the woman in the pictures, denied the rumors she was the reason Stokes broke up with Cline in a TikTok video.
She insisted he was “single” when she met him, explaining that she had received “many hateful comments” from people calling her a “house wrecker”. She added that she was “not dating” him – they were “literally just two drunk people making out”.
During this time, Cline has been linked to DJ Zack Bia. In December, they were spotted dining at Giorgio Baldi’s house and attending a Lakers game on his 24th birthday.
