Nick went on recalling the time when he helped look after Ryan after the latter got shot by the police and was placed in a coma for months.

To conclude his lengthy post, "The Masked Singer" host expressed regret that he could not be there when Ryan was still struggling. He wrote, "I can’t help but think if I wasnt so engulfed in my own bulls**t I could've been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts... F**k this place!!" Nick additionally tagged "Heaven" as the location of his post.
Reading his post, many urged others who know Nick personally to go check up on him and make sure that he's all right. Not a few also shared some encouraging words to the star. "Please turn to someone you trust and/or a counselor for some guidance. You matter," one said. "Nick please don't kill yourself. your a great person it’s the media trying to make you look like a bad guy."

I'm out!" amid the backlash that he has been facing over the comments he made about white people. In an episode of "Cannon's Class", he compared white people to "animals" and "true savages."
