ALASKAN Bush People’s Matt Brown seemed to shade his family in a new video post.
He admitted some people “still won’t accept” him after his addiction battle.
Matt shared a video captioned: “100 % of my 50 %.”
In the clip, he said: “I’ve looked in the mirror so many times before, and I was scraggly and dirty and I looked crazy and everything. And nowadays, I stay clean and shave, because when I look in the mirror I don’t want to see that guy.
“The hardest thing for me is that no matter how I look, or what I’m doing or how long I’ve had my stuff together, there are people in this world that just won’t accept that.
“And the hardest thing is having to live around them and see them and see the way they react and the things that they say which so just don’t mirror reality in like any form. That’s a lot for me sometimes to have to try and understand and be okay with.”
Last month Matt captioned another Instagram video: “Face your fears it will be ok. I love you.”
He said in the clip: “Yesterday, I hit a milestone- one year completely sober. For the past three years, I’ve been in sobriety, but I’ve slipped three times. And the last time I slipped was on the 20th of March last year.
“So I wanted to tell everybody if life is rough for you or if these hard circumstances that we’re all in right now have caused you to slip or relapse or even just to get into a mindset that you don’t like, it’s human. That happens to all of us, and it’s going to be okay.
“Also, there’s a lot of fear going on in the world right now, and I want to remind you of Batman Begins and what Batman does when he feels fear.”
In February, Matt shared a video on the social media platform updating fans on the passing of his father, Billy, at the age of 68, after suffering a seizure in the family’s Washington home.
He said of the loss: “He was at home. He was with his family, and it’s like he would have wanted it. The truth is it hit me hard. I’m fortunate, though.
“I’m very lucky. Before he passed, I knew that his health problems were getting worse. And I had the hindsight to be able to reconcile with him and find closure with him before he passed.
“Now that he has, I feel good in my heart. I knew that I took the opportunity to do the right thing…”
Billy is survived by seven children with his wife Ami, sons Matt, 36, Bam Bam, 34, Bear, 31, Gabe, 29, and Noah, 26, and daughters Bird, 24, and Rain, 16.
Matt previously resurfaced on social media after several months claiming “lies” kept him away from fans following accusations of rape from two women.
In September, two women accused Matt of violently raping them just days apart after he had spent days drinking heavily.
Matt, 37, posted a short video to his Instagram saying: “There are so many lies in the press about me, in general, it stopped me being able to act, to stand up at the right time for good.”
