During his latest rant, which initially started off as a response to trolls body-shaming him, Carter unleashed his frustration on all his followers.
In a now-deleted tweet, he wrote, "The way people talk about my weight is like high school times a million." He continued, "Yes. I'm skinny now. I've been very stressed and going thru [sic] some shit and felt like I needed to explain myself ‘cause so many people are asking me and talking about me being too f***ing skinny."
He continued to explain that "it's kinda hard being me" and called the haters out for bullying.
Yes. I'm aware ok. I go through shit and have been really stressed out and I have a stupid medical condition called a hiatal hernia...— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 22, 2015
It's kinda hard being me. But I'm good I promise. I love you guys and I appreciate your support i go through shit like everyone else— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 22, 2015
I suffer from a SHIT ton of anxiety trying to handle with my fam personally the best way I can— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 22, 2015
But then, things took a strange turn. He decided it was time to remind his almost 500,000 followers that he was the next Michael Jackson… according to the King of Pop himself.
So now.... It's time. In a lotta different ways I need to grow and be the best man I can be and my love is pure it started just as young as— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 23, 2015
MJ and that's why we both connected because we really were and still out the only ones of our kind.— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 23, 2015
Fans immediately tried to call his bluff, but Carter confirmed his claims were true.
No he compared himself to me. I knew Michael VERY well and spent lots of time with him. Just stop right there. https://t.co/Jbi0rSpsOe— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 23, 2015
He said in another since-deleted tweet, "Remember one very important thing, Michael passed down the torch to me. I never had to ask for him to do that."
In the end, his tweets nearly broke the Internet. People expressed their confusion, disgust and puzzlement, so Carter tried to elaborate — but his execution wasn't great.
Little do you guys know.... When Dookie gave me his JACKET PERSONALLY he was passing a torch to me verbatim don't need 2 explain myself— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) November 23, 2015
After a failed explanation, Carter pretty much proved he has no idea what it means to "pass the torch."
