When you have neglected your antidepressants for so long that you feel the initial side effects of taking it the first day you get back to it. Nausea is not fun. But yay, I’m being responsible? At least for today.
day following the release of a new solo record and video, Wu-Tang affiliated rapper Andre Jonson, AKA Christ Bearer, was taken to a hospital following a failed suicide attempt. He threw himself from a second-story balcony after deliberately severing his penis. Members of his group, North Star, who live in the same building as him, heard his fall and his screams and raced to the ground floor to find him running around screaming incoherently.
The Internet has mainly reacted with shock, a lot of WTFs and surprised/concerned emojis. But many are hung up on the penis aspect of this case, using the opportunity for a quick dick-joke or flippant comment about mental illness. Billboard embedded the Northstar song “Crazy” in their article that broke the news about this story. Tasteful. Twitter users have, of course, been using this as the opportunity to make dick jokes. Because how else should you respond to a man’s suicide attempt?
This is so fucked up though. Mental illnesses really seem to be the new wave of shit people wanna make fun of, I see it on here all the time too.
