Christian comedian John Crist broke eight months of silence after seeing his rising popularity come to a screeching halt amongst reports of sexual sin and addiction in 2019. 

John posted a 4 minute, 39 second video today on his Instagram channel thanking fans for their "love, care and support" for "me as a human being." You can watch the full message below. 

 


John revealed he has been in treatment for four months, away from electronics and being sent letters and messages from his sister during that time. "Certainly undeserved, based on decisions I made in my personal life, but incredibly humbling to receive." 

"I assumed that I was living in a community of people that would be the first to look down on me and judge me and point fingers on me," John explains, "and I felt nothing but the opposite during this process."

John uses the message to take ownership of the hurt and embarrassment that was caused while talking about the healing he's been going through. He also acknowledged the personal hypocrisy with much of his comedy calling out other hypocrisies. "I was portraying a person on the internet that I was not behaving like privately, and that's on me."

"I want to be part of the solution," John concluded. "I've been doing that in my personal life and I'd like to make that transition in doing that publicly."

John concluded the video by saying, "Thank you all for the love, support, and care. I can't wait for the future. I'll see you soon."
