Kodak Black Addresses Suicidal Tweet: ‘Thugs Need Love Too’
Kodak Black raised the alarm for his 3.8 million Twitter followers on October 7 when he tweeted a series of troubling tweets.
“So Lonely Depressed Sad & Fucked Up. Nobody Love Me Nobody Cares … I’m Everywhere @ Once … Friends Playin In My Head … Girls Playin Wit My Heart. Wish I Can Go Back To The Start I’ll Never Be Famous. Sitting In My Room Crying Feel Like Killing Myself.”
Shortly after, he disabled his social media accounts, worrying friends, family and fans even further.
But according to a recent update, Kodak Black is on the mend. On Saturday (October 9), Akademiks posted a long iPhone note from Kodak, apologizing for his actions.
“I mean maybe that wasn’t the best thing to tweet and very selfish of me to let a thought like that succumb,” he began. “I apologize to me for doubting myself like I ain’t a raw ass gangsta ass n-gga but thugs need love too you know and it’s totally unfair to the people that DO love me, that DO care & wanna see me happy and successful, however that looks like!”
Kodak Black then thanked his supporters for expressing their concern while acknowledging how alarming his tweets were.
“I understand I made a bold statement, but don’t worry I’m not suicidal and have no plans on harming myself. I been in maximum prisons people committing suicide and die from the hands of their cell mates right next to me, I been beaten by authorities 1,000 miles away from home no point of contact to family, never contemplated taking myself out.
“I got a great support system & surrounded by love, somebody put a false rumor in my head that drove me to the edge that I can’t say but all in all I’m ok! I’m really in need of a vacation but being on probation keep me stuck in this unhealthy environment where my only choice is running round the hood thuggin.”
The 24-year-old Floridian concluded with, “No matter how strong you are everyone have their days and it’s ok, as a general I swear to never show any signs of weakness that shit ain’t Zool Fa the people that look up to me. I lost one of my snipers to suicide.
“Mental health issues and depression is real but I see this Lil fuck n-gga happy to see my vibe off and decides he wants to kick me while I’m down. Don’t worry I got enough energy and yo bitch ass gave me all the motivation I need to keep stepping. #NightMare.”
Kodak’s post comes days after he reportedly checked into a 90-day drug treatment facility for failing a drug test. On Friday (October 8), TMZ reported Kodak asked a judge to allow him to finish the last 30 days in another facility outside of Florida.
