John Wayne Bobbitt is weighing in on rapper Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson, who cut off his own penis this week as part of an apparent suicide attempt.
Andre Johnson cut off his penis and jumped off a second-floor balcony in North Hollywood, Calif. Incredibly, he survived this and is in stable condition.
While doctors failed to reattach the member, he will live to tell about this. And if any one person can relate to this kind of trauma, it is John Wayne Bobbitt.
In 1993, Bobbitt became something of a tabloid sensation after his frustrated wife Lorena took a kitchen knife and sliced off his manhood as he slept.
While he lay bleeding and wailing on the bed, she tossed his detached penis out into a Virginia field. She quickly caught up with reality and called 911.
The former Marine, then 26, underwent a successful reattachment surgery. Johnson was reportedly not so lucky, but Bobbitt still understands his pain.
"You have got to get lucky," Bobbitt told Fox 411. "It’s about doctors and it’s about time."
