The last slide of the video reads: I WANT OUT.
The clip’s caption said, “I’ve been quiet a long time now. I want out of this, and I don’t mind people knowing. They took my grief process, my spirit, my money, my car, my home, and everything possible in order to ’protect me.’ Well, I need protection from them.”
In addition to: “I have worked my broken heart to quits since my dear Katie left for Home. I do not deserve this. This is a scary step but I don’t see what else to do here. I am ashamed of my family and embarrassed. I am beyond done. I have my spirit back. Get. Me. Out. Please.”
Williams has been present at events with his father in recent months. In November, Hank Williams Jr. was inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, and his son was with him.
Williams told People in August of 2020 that he “definitely broke and went through a really, really, really hard time.”
Through tears, he explained: “I’m still climbing out of it. But it’s the ’still climbing’ part that is the most important. That’ll just always be a big part of my story.”
