DL Fave Yashar Ali is Having Some Kind of Breakdown. Tweeting About it

The main thread went down on the 27th but he's added some tweets since then.

He is asking for comfort, (but has a of rules about what not to do or say, which...)

Refers to himself as a "caretaker", not totally clear if he means that as a characteristic of his, or in an active one on one caretaking role.

Says he is experiencing "passive suicidal ideation"

Twitter is for mentally ill people, especially those who have those little check marks.

by Anonymousreply 305/29/2021

This kind of thing is why I can never go full on with taking care of other people - I have boundaries that know that this kind of thing would happen. I don't mind doing some stuff and have done but giving myself completely over to it without recompense of some sort isn't my thing. I think what he should do is directly tell the people he cares for what he wants from them rather than expect them to mind-read him, and if they don't want to reciprocate, then he should move on and stop taking care of them.

Just read Jack Mackenroth FB comments wishing him “all the best” and wonder how many people would actually take the time to go and visit him at the hospital...

I know several younger people like this that would rather hang their ass out to strangers than pick up the phone and call someone. I once saved a friend from doing something by rushing over to his house late at night. It’s sad they don’t know how to interface with others and so completely comfortable living digitally- because it’s such a double edged sword.

Put the phone down and get some real help.

He was a huge, unquestioning Christy Teigen supporter. After her faux apology, he only retweeted without comment.

R13 Yes it is. We had a thread about his bio photo and what he looks like now. I kind of feel bad about it since I'm sure he saw it and likely gets digs all the time. But hey, you put yourself out there, you have to take the good with the bad. He looks like a depressed mess IRL. I don't know why being depressed is coming as such a surprise to him.

He needs a better therapist, because anyone worth their salt would have pointed the depression angle out to him ages ago. He talks about his ADHD being his "real" issue. I don't think so. I think that's just a reason to get a script for legal speed in hopes that he will lose weight.

by Anonymousreply 1505/29/2021

R15 he doesn't need a therapist he need to log the fuck off of Twitter forever. Twitter both attracts mentally ill people and make makes sane people insane.

There are threads not unlike this on DL too. There was a recent one by a guy who said he'd taken care of his parents for 10 years and that he had nothing himself to show for it. He sounded like he was being sent crazy over it.

by Anonymousreply 1805/29/2021

This is probably a byproduct of my having been on the internet too long but I have a real aversion to strangers on the internet expecting me to care about them. I have empathy and I do care about anyone who is going through a tough time, and I feel badly for Yashar, but there's also this weird expectation that I'm *supposed* to care about him because of who he is. I don't.

When I'm on Twitter and someone I know retweets a plea for comfort and/or money because some verified person with a lot of followers is going through a hard time, all I feel is irritation. Don't make demands just because you're Twitter famous.

by Anonymousreply 1905/29/2021

I don't know who that is r18 but he's been here for years, every few months he posts that he's going to kill himself either now or when the parent(s) he's caring for dies. He seems to also be the one who posts occasional threads where he tells a story about how someone who was a caregiver for parents killed themselves after the parents died. I don't know what he wants. Is he a misery troll or does he want help? We can't help him.

Or, perhaps they fucked up and missed one of his 47812 rules what NOT to do to comfort him and now he's pouting. I mean depressed. I mean suicidal-ish, I mean fat, unattractive and needy.

I find that most people who feel they are the caretakers of the world, as he clearly does, are really the ones who need the attention and care. Not one iota of disrespect intended to those of us who are truly in the trenches being a caretaker of a friend or family member. Not at all.

So he's like Edwin in that respect. AND he looks like him too!

by Anonymousreply 6005/29/2021

His post on R48’s link is basically saying that people who have mental health concerns owe it to others and themselves to scream about it publicly. If you don’t do that then you’re not healing. He and mental health-porn idiots like Harry think that their personal issues should be broadcast to the world, as if that would be supportive to actual therapy. To me as a mental health professional, this sort of outward attention-seeking and validation is not only not supportive to treatment/ therapy, but quite the opposite.

Talking about mental health is great. However, just because you are passionate about the issue it doesn’t mean that you have to make the issue all about yourself. Your own unique experiences cannot be applied to other people, and vice versa. The problem I have with SM influencers and Prince Harry is that instead of highlighting mental health, they make the issue all about themselves and their own struggles. With Ali, the first thing he should do is get off SM, get the professional help that he needs instead of seeking validation on SM.

Also, seeking therapy in private is NOT “being silent”. We shouldn’t put another burden or expectation on people who have mental health issues, that they need to talk about their own therapeutic journeys in public. They don’t and shouldn’t be made to feel that they owe those in their circles to share everything.

Twitter and Instagram are both what you make of them,

On Twitter you can completely ignore politics, only follow some of your favorite publications and sports teams so you're getting links to stories. Especially easy to do with trade publications and bloggers who write about specific industries or cover specific sports, most of whom never get more personal than telling you that they really like Chinese food.

Instagram too, you don't need to follow people who post photos of themselves. There are thousands of photographers who do everything from nature photos to street scenes, running shoe companies that post photos from races, sports teams and leagues that post videos and photos from games, etc.

by Anonymousreply 6705/29/2021

I don’t think he has any friends , family or social life, and Twitter has become that for him. It’s made worse by celebrities engaging with him, it makes him feel important and seen.

He needs help. Chrissy Teigen and Kathy Griffin don’t gaf about him.

He also seems exhausting. Whenever he’s not getting enough attention he will tweet something that gets him trending on Twitter.

by Anonymousreply 6805/29/2021

R62 So true. These confessional threads so often start with, “I don’t usually talk about such things in public but I feel it’s my responsibility to help others” etc etc. Is it not well established by now that there is no shame in seeking help? There is a much of a muchness about this kind of sharing now. But what do I know, I’m old now and avoid drama.

R67 thing with Twitter is, even if you want to avoid politics, it’s very likely many of the people you follow are intensely political now, and will fill your timeline with their impassioned retweets. When I first got on Twitter in 2011, it was mostly fun and playful. Then people who used to tweet about music or cake got obsessed with the Lincoln Project or whatever. That was it for me. Instagram is much less fraught.

R70 No, because he would refuse it. See upthread where he has a fuckton of rules about how he wants and doesn't want to be cared for.

He is a self admitted rich kid and has likely zero genuine support systems (He will blame this on being a gay Iranian as he does when convenient). I find him to be the classic Iranian asshole who came to the US when young and tried to fit in by using his money and his "connections". Which to me seems to be dwindled down to two fag hags who are also Twitter whores, though they seem to have given him the boot. He keeps every way to be in touch open that you can imagine: Email: currentyashar@gmail.com Direct Messages Open Text/Call/Signal/Confide/WhatsApp: 310-795-2497.

r142 Yep, my thoughts and another poster's upthread exactly. I also think Kathy Griffin, (he got her side of the story out after that whole photo debacle, and did a decent job of it), has done her usual bridge burning, while he probably figured they were BFFs.

I hope that with the 65498557511687792645 ways he lists to get in touch with him, someone will request a welfare check, because that would just make his fucking day....OK....night but you get what I mean. This "story" has legs. I've seen him tweet strange shit, but this is indeed different.

I wonder if his daddy (he talks about him sometimes. His dad is old school strict and he holds the purse strings) has cut him off?

I'll bet ANYTHING that's it. Yashar without his (daddy's) money is a nobody. And the one thing that Yashar can't stand for is being a nobody.

How many reports of suicidal ideation to his Twitter acct will get it suspended?

by Anonymousreply 14605/30/2021

I'm not a fan of his but I get what he's saying.

It can be depressing when you're the person who is always offering to help other people but when the time comes that you need help working your way through something, your friends have no idea how to help you so they either pull back or are completely ineffective.

The real problem is: he has no idea how to let people help him if they want to and any help they give is likely not the help he imagines he needs.

He needs to make friends that he can go to and also find a better therapist.

So, I just called LAPD and they are taking it seriously. At first, they didn't know who the hell he was (ha!) but after I mentioned his relationship with Chrissy and Kathy they got serious really quick. I was asked what race he was (let's discuss that for another time. I was surprised by that question but likely should not have been I suppose.), I told him he was Iranian, and that he's "kind of a big deal on Twitter" which sort of made ME want to kill myself, but apparently all the info I gave them, including his fucking posted phone number, went from a truly angry sounding man yelling SIR, JUST TELL TWITTER SIR, WE ARE BUSY, SIR, SIR, SIR, SIR. To : Thank you, Sir, we really appreciate this, (same guy different attitude) and we will get people out there right away and keep you advised.

It was fucking creepy. But what the hell, I followed my instincts. As much as we are bagging on the guy, he might really be in trouble. And far worse, putting other people in trouble.

Exactly. Good that people called the cops on him and his glamorizing of mental illness as it were just a passing phase that people can commiserate and get over.

It is also perfectly okay to have have days when you feel sad and have thoughts of not wanting to wake up. It’s called life. But my sympathy as a mental health professional ends when you continue tweeting these vague words intended to alarm others into thinking you have passive suicidal ideations persisting 6+ days. You are deliberately opening yourself up to garner sympathy. You are not doing anything to highlight importance of mental health, instead you are trivializing it. There isn’t stigma in seeking MH treatment anymore, get your fat ass out of bed, dial up some MH providers, make appointments, and get the fuck off of Twitter.

Too many celebs and influencers romanticize mental health concerns or mental illness. They get on their platforms and talk about their own experiences as if they’re experts or they pretend to promote awareness. No, all they’re doing id talking about themselves, they don’t raise awareness at all. They only raise their public profile.

It is now a cottage industry on SM, with people exploiting mental health topics and symptoms, in turn merchandizing catchphrases on t-shirts and mugs, or hosting podcasts and shows where the focus of mental health is invariably confined to a narrow spectrum of the celebs’/ influencers’ own experiences. It’s another way for privileged people to be seen as victims as it’s the only avenue for which they can credibly claim victimhood.

"Passive suicide ideation" is a misnomer. Suicide is by definition an active process whereby one kills oneself (that's the etymological meaning as well as the dictionary one), so maybe "non-suicidal death ideation" should be used instead. Mind you, I haven't looked up to see whether this is an established term or if Yashar has just tarted up his bid for attention with an official-sounding name.

R181 suicidal ideation is when you are thinking of killing yourself. But to delineate whether you have plans to carry it out, sometimes providers use “active” to describe it. So by default, passive SI is when you think about it but don’t plan to do it at this time.

by Anonymousreply 19005/31/2021

Suicidal ideation is by its nature passive. Yashar is not stupid. He added "passive" so people wouldn't call the police. He has 1,000 replies to his last tweet of people sending him love and pictures of kitties!! That's all he wants right now. It is not mental health awareness to tweet to strangers on the internet that you go to bed not wanting wake up. He has doctors. He can CALL THEM.

by Anonymousreply 19105/31/2021

Yes the timing is interesting because of the rounds of promotional events and programs that supposedly focus on mental health. I say supposedly because a lot of these endeavors are tangentially related to mental health, many are geared towards life coaching and wellness promotions disguised as mental health awareness. Mental health has become one of the latest topics to be commoditized and monetized. To that end, the PTBs and celebs who latched on to the movement need to frame mental illness/ mental health concerns as widespread and prevalent. Every negative emotion/ feeling is magnified to crisis level. Perfectly healthy emotions such as sadness, disappointment, or regret, for instance, are made out to be negatives, as if well-adjusted human beings are to go through life without experiencing any of these things.

^ The lol dude or lady is a DL troll who delights in keeping schadenfreude stories going for days and weeks. He did the same thing with Jussie Smollett. Weird to keep posting about a local newsguy and a sandwich. He posts from a few devices, never much to say. Lies a lot. Seems to delight in mildly racist commentary. Believes that all gay men are persecuted, all the time. Except the black gays - who always lie. Bitch hates Beyonce too! He's the white racist gay DL elder gay poster. Periodt. Posts from a few devices and never tells the same truth twice.

Yashar is an ass & worse. The I miss my uncle in Iran is a new one for him today. So R361 got right on it too. Likes to change it up from the persecutor to persecuted. That troll talks big about posting things on Twitter - but he clearly does not. It's very easy to embed a twitter post to PROVE what you posted and it's very easy for us Twitter followers to read recent replies to Yashar. That weird guy who keeps on going is living his not so great life on DL. Some of us have actually reported and or responded to Yashar's tweets on Twitter. Not out of game play or shittiness. And in my case not out of concern for Yashar. BUT, he's dangerous and wrong for others. I find it fucking disgraceful. Anyone else would be removed for inciting and encouraging suicide. I don't want the guy to kill himself, but we're pretty sure he is in no danger of that. Even if he does hang himself from a door knob - announcing it for 8 days and nights on Twitter is pretty sick.

I'm would link my twitter messages to Yashar, but I'm not about to divulge my picture and profile to DL posters. My pics are on some of the best ASS and legs threads here though. Not posted by me - but y'all welcome.

Kathy G posted something completely unrelated to Yashar, but I still think it was a subtle message to him to stop being so self indulgent. When Kathy Griffin calls you out as self pitying, you're already in the deep end.

And yes R374, you've got his number. He's really fucking with his followers. Thousands of people should report these tweets and get him banned from Twitter. Instead he'll be made a martyr for speaking about "mental health issues."

Posting everyday and night that you wish you would never wake up is called everyday life for millions of people. It's not right or OK, but to label it passive suicidal ideation is nothing but attention grabbing alarms and manipulation of thousands of people in his case. Any good therapist will tell you that we should not expect to be happy most of the time. In real life during suicidal crises - people offer to help, check in with your as much as they can and answer your calls anytime. They also give offer you resources, most of them shit to be honest. As Anne Sexton said, real suicides never ask why - they just want to know how. I have no doubt that Yashar is getting other attention for his state of mind. He should leave his dumb, vulnerable twitter minions alone. He's gonna push someone over the edge while he stuffs himself with chocolate cake in his bed. Surrounded by his devices.

As a borderline I think that claiming day in day out that you want to end it all and not act on it and actually do it feels really manipulative: he's not immediately suicidal but he really manipulates people into telling him that everything's gonna be fine and [bold]how they love him[/bold]. DBT pulls your head back out of your self-inflicted darkness so that you get a chance to see the whole perspective, the whole game and it feels like his game right now is "I feel awful, please tell me that you love me". Day after day after day. Typical BPD BS however painful it is for him. But it does get better if you get the right therapy. Which he definitely has access to. Good luck to him.

What a cunt. He's not so indirectly tailcoating off of Anthony Bourdain's suicide, ("passing") and humblebragging about being "helped" by him before he died. It's all about him. I would like to knock Anthony's name out of his mouth but it is too full of doughnuts for me to get a good angle.

OMG, he never stops with the name dropping. Bourdain was obviously a troubled soul himself, but at least he didn't sit around on his ass whining and wallowing in self pity every day. He had a rich life full of experiences. Yashar is privileged enough that he could be doing any number of things with his time instead of being a useless boil on the ass of society, but he is far too lazy and narcissistic.

R421, if you really hate him, you’d want him to live so he can continue living a pathetic live.

For all his supposed values, I can guarantee you that Yashar would trade places with someone like Aaron Shock any day of the week. That’s the attention he wishes he could have. He’s ugly and even though he’s rich, that’s still not enough to land him a man. Imagine being rich and still not getting dick? Really sad.

by Anonymousreply 42306/06/2021

Even though he’s gay, he gives off an asexual vibe. I’m surprised Twitter hasn’t banned him yet for promoting suicide chic, because that’s exactly what it is. Saying you WISH to not wake up (euphemism for death) and “wish” is passive as opposed to “am going to”. Doing this day after day, I can’t imagine his therapist or the “help” that he claims to be getting is okay with this type of behavior.

R416 I had that very same thought upthread. An advent calendar of assholery.

R420 That he's starting to publicly shame people who disagree with him via quote tweet (a screenshot frozen in time no less), with his saccharine, innocent reply of "I'm only helping myself and others" is horrible, and shows just what a nasty piece of work he really is. He's a bully who feeds on all of the drama.

I'm disgusted, but not surprised that he's stepped the drama up an ugly notch. Telling timing though. People were starting to move on to other things, and the big fat fucking baby can't have that! I feel bad for Cindi. That was a great tweet she sent, and it must have really hurt his fee-fees for him to go to that trouble.

Don't forget to keep reporting, He's being very careful with his wording lately, so it's harder. He indeed has been at this game (and that is exactly what it is to him, a game for attention) for a long time.

When I’ve been suicidal , most of the time no one except maybe my sister or partner has even known I’m struggling. I mean I’m sure people can tell I’m not great by looking at me, you wear depression on your face I think but my point is I’m sure not running a tally on social media everyday to burden other people with.

r439 I am the same way (also bipolar, also suicidal many times and hospitalized for it half a dozen).

When I was younger -- teens and early twenties -- I was more likely to tell friends and family. Now, in my late 30s, I don't tell anyone. With one exception several years ago, when I voluntarily committed myself, the times I'm closest to suicide are the times I'm the least likely to want someone to know.

In my youth, I didn't appreciate what a burden that information is to another person. Age brings perspective in all sorts of ways.

People you love in life die, sometimes unexpectedly and sometimes prolonged in painful manners. These events are part of life’s milestones, people have to learn coping skills to deal with them. It’s not easy but you acknowledge these challenges and do the best you can. What you shouldn’t do is become a SM pest wallowing in it for weeks and deliberately portraying your travails as serious mental illness. It’s not a cry for help but a cry for attention when you do that.

So true, R105. It’s also very telling that he has the wherewithal to be picky about and voice the kind of help and support he does [italic]not[/italic] want to receive.

It’s like someone on a ledge threatening to jump telling friends and strangers who are yelling for him to come down, “I don’t like your tone. Oh, and you haven’t been polite enough. And you aren’t really convincing me. And, by the way, I’ve already tried that.”

Read the article r520 Gay is literally the least of it.

The article is worth reading not just for the Kathy bits, but those are still some tasty bits. Here is one, and it's tame compared to other said bits:

Griffin declined to speak about Ali on the record. However, a representative for the comedian offered a statement on her behalf: “Sometimes you make a new friend and that friend turns out to be quite a different person than you thought they were."

I'm very surprised that Susie Tompkins, now billionaire, who I once knew WAY back in the day, when still trying to get Esprit off of the ground. She was a fucking piranha (in a good way, really), got sucked in by him.

Less surprised by the Getty woman. They kind of live to be taken advantage of. Drama queen family.

Dear moron R520, the guy is a grifter and seems to be a bit of a psychopath.

Also, he converted to Catholicism and includes as his besties Megyn Kelly and Jenna Ellis. At times he has been a very fat mouthpiece for some very ugly, Republican talking points. The DL crowd loves nothing more than going after grifting frauds like Ali. And I love nothing more than watching the carrion pile.

...By then, Ali had found a new friend. In the spring of 2017, comedian Kathy Griffin’s life was quickly unraveling following a photo shoot in which she posed holding a prop resembling Donald Trump’s decapitated head. Death threats poured in by the thousands. Griffin was promptly fired from her gig at CNN, venues canceled her upcoming comedy tour, and lucrative endorsement deals disappeared overnight. The Secret Service launched an investigation. Griffin was as radioactive as a celebrity could get. Desperate, she turned to an unlikely savior—one of her favorite Twitter personalities who’d often been complimentary about her on the platform.

She DM’ed Ali, and as fate would have it, they discovered a weird connection: they’d both attended the same high school in Chicago, and Ali recalled attending a party at her house in L.A. years later. Initially, they discussed simply doing an interview to clear up the Trump matter. But as their relationship grew closer, Ali morphed into Griffin’s unofficial advisor and shadow publicist. He introduced Griffin to sympathetic journalists, schooled her in the intricacies of social media, and strategized about which publications and late-night talk shows would best serve her career rehabilitation. Eventually, Ali took an even more active role in her comeback, writing a glowing profile of Griffin for New York. When Ali said he was coming to L.A. in the spring of 2018, Griffin invited him to stay at her 13,000-square-foot Bel-Air mansion. According to a source close to Griffin, he ended up living there for nine months. (Ali insists he stayed less than six.)

Playing a similar role for Griffin that he’d played for Newsom and Buell, Ali became the comic’s confidante-slash-executive assistant, though he was never on Griffin’s payroll. He took an active role in managing Griffin’s social media accounts, helped her set up a merchandise company, and came to her defense in a property dispute by posting an embarrassing audio clip of a wealthy neighbor screaming expletives. He made a brief cameo in a Keeping Up With the Kardashians Christmas special, which he attended as Griffin’s guest. He did Griffin’s grocery shopping and cooking, jobs that usually fell to Griffin’s paid staff. In exchange, she let him live in her home rent-free and lent him one of her cars. But as the months wore on, Ali became increasingly reclusive, holing up in his bedroom and rarely leaving the house. Staff members assumed he was busy writing, but people around Griffin grew concerned when he started receiving official government mail at her home address.

One evening in the fall of 2018, Griffin invited journalist Joan Walsh, the national affairs correspondent for The Nation and a former political analyst for CNN and MSNBC, to join her for dinner. After Ali made an appearance, Walsh began probing Griffin about the nature of her relationship with him. Walsh says she got the sense that Griffin wanted Ali to leave but was too intimidated to force the issue. “I completely believed that she was uncomfortable and maybe even afraid, and I sympathized with her,” says Walsh. After listening to Griffin’s story and seeing her evident anxiety, Walsh told her host, “Kathy, you got yourself a grifter. You have to get him out of here.”

It would take several more months, but Griffin finally asked Ali to leave in early 2019, enlisting two part-time male assistants to help oversee the packing of his belongings. Then they ordered him an Uber and sent him on his way. (Ali says he only stayed with Griffin at her urging, and left of his own volition. He says the comedian even threw him a going-away party when he moved out.) Griffin declined to speak about Ali on the record. However, a representative for the comedian offered a statement on her behalf: “Sometimes you make a new friend and that friend turns out to be quite a different person than you thought they were.”

I don’t have any sympathy for Kathy and other rich and famous people who got fooled by grifter Ali. They had their egos stroked by someone who said all the right things and acted as unofficial personal assistant. They fed off each other until the more powerful party got sick of having a mooching sycophant who showed his true colors.

That righteous moxie propels a lot of Ali’s reporting. But it also makes many of his pieces highly reductive—most have clearly identifiable villains and victims and a crusading hero in the person of Ali himself. While no one can doubt he’s helped expose serious malfeasance, the public fallout that often results from his crusades has at times been hurtful and troublingly lacking in nuance. Once, when he was talking about the impact of his stories, I asked him if he ever felt any remorse about attacking people who once considered him a friend. “Never,” he said. “It doesn’t bring me down because I’ve been getting results. If I wasn’t getting results, it might. There’s no story I’ve ever done where it was a one-time mistake.

by Anonymousreply 54506/09/2021

Fact, in CA it is illegal to be recorded without BOTH parties consent:

Back at the Four Seasons, as I turn off my recorder and get up to leave, Ali is in an upbeat mood, eager to share. (I later discovered he had been secretly recording me, as well.) He tells me he’d be happy to sit and chat for several more hours, but it’s getting late. I affix my mask and we exchange pleasantries, bump fists, and make plans to talk again. It’s now dusk, and the snarled traffic on Doheny is an unwelcome sign that the world—after a truly horrific year—is finally getting back to normal.

As I exit the driveway, I steal a glance over my shoulder and notice that Ali is still seated at our table, alone, avidly scrolling through his phone.
