YouTuber and conservative commentator Steven Crowder said on Tuesday that things “took a turn for the worse” after his lung partially collapsed.
The story: Crowder, the host of “Louder With Crowder,” on Friday revealed that he suffered a partial lung collapse while recovering from a recent surgical procedure.
On Tuesday, Crowder again took to social media to provide an update on his health and recovery. He posted a photo of himself lying in a hospital bed and suggested that he could “physically feel death.” He ensured followers that the issue was “fixable.”
“Last night took a turn for the worse. Ever actually get so close that you can physically feel death? He’s a dick. The good news is, it’s fixable and these things happen. I’ll be back before you know it. Thanks for the support,” Crowder tweeted along with a photo of himself.
Worth noting: While many on social media wished Crowder a speedy recovery, others did not.
“This dude made fun of George Floyd’s death. He doesn’t think our lives matter so I feel the same about his,” someone wrote.
“Don’t fight too hard now. Might just be your time,” another tweet said.
“Nah it’s cool man, feel free to die. Don’t hold up on my account,” one tweet read.
How we got here: Crowder had previously announced in a June 29 video that he was having surgery in July. He said he had a “connective tissue disorder” that led to his “chesting caving in on [his] heart.”
On July 11, Crowder said he underwent “pectus surgery.”
In the same Twitter thread, Crowder, who has been posting regularly about his recovery on social media, wrote “12 lbs of fluid in one night” after the surgery. He discussed how the surgery has changed his appearance and posted a shirtless selfie of himself.
On July 23, Crowder posted a video on Instagram at a shooting range, informing followers that “recovery is okay.”
“It could be going better. I’ve been retaining fluid around the lungs, so everything is excruciatingly painful. Including breathing,” he wrote. Crowder explained that if the situation does not get better, “the next stop would involve being re-admitted and popping in another chest tube. That would suck. Basically, people go through a lot worse, and so I’ve no right to complain. But things are pretty rough right now.”
