A number of psychologists have today expressed extreme concern for Tallafornia star Philly, after he made a series of comments about himself claiming to be a “success” in life.
Alarm bells were raised when Philly got into an aggressive online row over this photo.
The picture was taken as a joke, but produced this erratic response from the TV “star”.
Why Philly hates overweight people so much we may never know, but when we spoke to behavioural psychologist Richard Higgins, from Trinity College he said:
What’s worrying here is that Philly seems to have lost his sense of humour. He does not perceive this as a joke and is demonstrating a poor ability at picking up on social cues. Including the aggressive response back, it appears that he is displaying traits and characteristics of someone with Aspergers Syndrome, which is a condition that falls under the autistic spectrum. It’s a worrying sign that he should really get checked out, before he turns into a complete bell-end.
The professor went on to comment that his delusional comments – littered with horrendous spelling mistakes – and threats about legal action, shows not only a very low IQ but also how he is falling out of touch with reality. Another possible signal that his mental health is deteriorating rather quickly.
Professor Higgins further commented on the star’s state of mind and said:
Not only is the aggression, lack of humour and near infantile attempts at spelling a very concerning issue, but also the fact that he appears to consider himself a success in life is the most worrying sign. If he attributes his success as being recorded on camera while drinking heavily and being rejected by numerous women, then, for his own sake, he needs to be evaluated by a mental health professional to prevent any further long term damage from happening.
Fans have taken to the star’s Twitter page to offer support and to try and encourage him to get the help he needs. They are hoping that someday he may realise that drinking on camera and not being able to spell are things that every single person in the country could do and don’t really warrant the title of success.
Everyone here at The Potato is wishing him a speedy recovery. We hope that he’ll be able to take a joke, that he may be ok with fat people and that he will be a true success some day – and not just by getting locked and rejected by the opposite sex. We all can do that.
