Comedian Gabriel Iglesias is backing out of several upcoming tour dates after he revealed he is struggling with “health and emotional issues.”
On Wednesday, the comic wrote on Instagram that his issues “needed attention asap” and that “attempting to work through my problems was not going over and I had to stop everything before things got worse.”

Wednesday’s post follows another earlier in the week in which he wrote “the problem with going down the wrong way is sometimes you take people with you. I’m not where I need to be, but I’m refocused and hopeful.”
Iglesias has canceled the rest of his tour through March. He was scheduled to appear at venues across the United States, from Texas to Pennsylvania.
To my fans: I can not apologize enough for the sudden cancellation of recent shows. I'm dealing with some serious health and emotional issues that needed attention asap. Attempting to work through my problems was not going over and I had to stop everything b4 things got worse. Failing to make better choices and never taking a break in 20 years of intense touring has finally caught up to me. I need to get better b4 I can return to making people laugh and smile. I applaud my management for doing their best to protect me but my fans need to know the truth. Fluffy is fine but Gabriel needs help. #gabrieliglesias #FluffyGuy A post shared by Gabriel Iglesias (@fluffyguy) on Mar 1, 2017 at 1:46pm PST
In several interviews, Iglesias has spoken about the toll touring takes on him. In a 2014 interview, he talked about his diabetes and its impact on his health. The comedian dropped almost 100 pounds to deal with the condition, but still didn’t take time off his grueling tour schedule. He also released a few stand-up specials with Comedy Central, most famously “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy.”
Fans on Twitter and Instagram, where Iglesias has 1.2 million followers, offered support for the comic.
