Comedian John Crist comes back online

Christian comedian John Crist appeared online July 15 to thank fans for their “undeserved” support as he sought treatment for sexual sin and addiction.

In a Facebook video, his first in eight months, Crist said he spent four months in a treatment facility and plans to continue in recovery.

In November 2019, a Charisma magazine investigation reported allegations of sexual misconduct by Crist, 36, toward young female fans.

Crist said he takes full responsibility for the choices he made.

“All my comedy videos were pointing out hypocrisy in some way … and the most embarrassing part of this whole thing is the biggest hypocrite was me,” Crist said.

In comments, thousands of fans expressed their support and excitement over his potential return. (TAB)
