In other news, in reaction to Stephen “tWitch” Boss’ death by suicide, popular filmmaker, Tyler Perry, has spoken openly about his own attempt at suicide.
tWitch, a former DJ for the Ellen DeGeneres Show and a contestant on “So You Think You Can Dance,” passed away on Wednesday, December 14, at the age of 40.
Speaking in a video shared via his Instagram page on Thursday, December 15, Tyler Perry expressed shock at the sudden demise of tWitch.
“The World Lost a Bright Light. I’ve only met him a couple of times,” Perry said. “He was always full of life, it seemed like, such a light.”
He added that owing to tWitch’s death, he feels compelled to share a message to those who are going through a hard time.
Reflecting on “dark” times he has experienced in his own life, Perry said, “I just want to take you back to a time in my life when I tried to commit suicide, a couple of times, because it was so dark I didn’t think it would get any better. I had endured so much pain, so much abuse, sexual abuse, it was all so hard to just move through that I thought the only way to make this better was to end my life.”
He further urged those going through a difficult time to talk to someone and seek help.
“I know it may seem like there’s no hope, but please reach out to someone … call, ask for help if you are dealing with anything that is emotionally taking you to a place where you think you want to end your life.”
