Last year, Lucian Piane—the musical mentor on RuPaul’s Drag Race—had two very public Twitter meltdowns that caused him to espouse political conspiracy theories and encourage the use of racial slurs. Today Piane provided an explanation for the cause of his behavior: A marijuana overdose.

On Piane’s Instagram, he posted the following explanation:

After his public meltdowns, RuPaul herself pleaded for compassion and Piane later launched a “bomb-ass” crowdfunding campaign for a new album which only gained $55 of its $120,000 goal.

No matter the cause, mental episodes of any sort can have lasting effects, so we’re hoping that Piane continues to get whatever help he needs.
