LOS ANGELES—The Daily Caller is reporting that troubled Pasadena City College "porn professor" Hugo Schwyzer has attempted suicide for a second time. This second reported attempt comes as Schyzer's escalating mania plays out publicly on mainstream and social media.
“He said the attempt was ‘serious,’ in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation,” reported Robby Soave at 4:30pm. He also said he had been hospitalized again.
Schwyser also self-reported his first suicide to the media within 24 hours of the alleged attempt, and also while he was hospitalized, then under a 72-hour watch. The Daily Caller account contains no additional information about the latest suicide attempt, his hospitalization or anything else the email may have contained.
Earlier in the week, the conservative Daily Caller News Foundation also interviewed Schwyzer fresh off his first failed suicide attempt and several subsequent public meltdowns. The interview, which they called “revelatory,” covered topics like insanity, suicide and sex.
But the Daily Beast had published its own porn professor interview the day before. Sex and insanity were certainly addressed, and writer Richard Abowitz’ also inquired into the potential for another suicide attempt, asking Schyzer, “Are you suicidal? Are you OK?"
“At the moment, don’t worry,” Schwyzer reassured him back. “I am periodically suicidal. I have been hospitalized three times in the past month.”
Probably best to leave the professor alone now, even if, like the Wolfman, he begs and screams to be let out of his locked room to do just one more interview, one more tweet.
