Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller broke his silence over the weekend, starting off with a reassuring Facebook update and then several dozen not so reassuring twitter messages. First, Facebook:
“I know you all are probably very confused about me right now, and concerned for my well being. I thank you for that, and please unnastand that everything is fine, and will probably make a lot more sense as time passes. Love you all.”
You can judge me if you want, hate me if you want, say anything you want. This is Amareca, you have rights. Just don’t Harm anyone.
I have walked down much harder roads than this, many times before. I don’t want you to waste thumb energy protecting me, or bashing me.
religion has brought amazing things to the world, you cannot disrespect such an enormous force-Do not bash what has helped humanity survive
on the stupidity of a young man at a challenging time in his life I know I bashed faith as a youth, but YouTube is temp, the Trueth is real
I did some socially unacceptable things last Sunday, that, for some reason has got some of you to hate me, even though at one time you loved
I am caring for myself-if everyone turns their back on me, and you never see me on tv again, that is fine with me-I like living in the woods
But while working with those less fortunate than myself, I have come to realize, WE are all crazy. America is crazy. I just want to shift it
Not a cry for attention, personal glory, or monetary Gain. I did that in my time fighting for the @UFC and Have come to see I was wrong
I am safe, with people that love me, and hope that you will join me. If I ever hurt anyone, I am sorry.
There’s just something about twitter that doesn’t lend itself to effective displays of sanity. Brevity is the soul of wit but 140 characters isn’t very effective when trying to express complex ideas regarding faith, life, and introspection. “I am safe, with people that love me, and hope that you will join me. If I ever hurt anyone, I am sorry” sounds like the last thing you hear from someone before they go on a shooting spree. That worries me. Almost as much as how Mayhem spells ‘trueth.’
