Bowen Yang suffering from ‘bad bouts of depersonalization’

Bowen Yang is currently prioritizing his mental well-being.

The popular “Saturday Night Live” star has announced that he will be taking a temporary break from his podcast, “Las Culturistas,” in order to seek treatment for his recurring episodes of depersonalization.

“I will be taking a short break from ‘Las Culturistas.’ These intense bouts of depersonalization have been greatly affecting me, but I am committed to getting better!” Yang shared on his Instagram Story over the weekend.

“Please take care and I will be back soon.”

Depersonalization is a psychological condition characterized by the feeling of being outside of one’s body and the belief that one’s surroundings are not real, as explained by the Mayo Clinic.

This disorder is more commonly experienced by individuals who have gone through traumatic events.

“There was a significant lack of understanding,” Yang explained. “Both sides failed to truly comprehend each other’s perspectives, which resulted in extremely dangerous situations overall.

“However, one constant throughout was the presence of love from both sides,” he added. “This pushed me to question the meaning of love, what needs to be protected, and what aspects of being a queer individual I should prioritize. I consider myself fortunate to have this perspective.”

Yang also acknowledged that while he does not feel the pressure of being the first Asian-American and openly gay comedian on “SNL,” he maintains a constant sense of humility.

“If I were to place pressure on myself to represent the Asian community in a significant way, it would only hinder my ability to think that I am obligated to speak on behalf of multiple individuals,” he further explained.

The “Saturday Night Live” star announced he’s taking a temporary hiatus from his podcast, “Las Culturistas,” to treat his “bad bouts of depersonalization.”

“Taking a very short break from [‘Las Culturistas’]. Bad bouts of depersonalization are f–king me up bad, but I am doing my best to get better!” Yang wrote on his Instagram Story over the weekend.

“Please take care, be soon.”

Depersonalization is a psychological condition in which people have out-of-body experiences that cause them to believe that things around them aren’t real, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The “Fire Island” star, 32, revealed in People magazine’s 2021 Sexiest Man Alive issue that his trauma stems from when his parents sent him to a gay conversion camp.

“There was a huge chasm of misunderstanding,” Yang explained. “Neither side really understood where the other was coming from, and it led to very dangerous situations overall.

“What was always constant was the intention of love from both sides,” he added. “It pushed me into questioning what it meant, what was protected and what I should be protective about in terms of being a queer person. I don’t take it for granted.”

Yang also admitted that while he doesn’t feel pressure as the first Asian-American and openly gay comic on “SNL,” he does have a “constant” sense of humility.

“And If I ever put pressure on myself to represent in any meaningful way for Asian people, then that would just get in my way in terms of thinking that I am destined to speak on behalf of multiple people,” he added.
