In a roundabout yet shocking way, “Alaskan Bush People”s Noah Brown is rebutting his brother Matt Brown‘s recent claims against the family.

In one of his latest Instagram posts, Noah Brown aims to “draw attention to the struggle that the families of [addicts] are going through on a daily basis.” In addition, Noah cites several severe mental illnesses, while not naming his older brother directly in the post. He does, however, tag Matt directly and later mention him by name to fans in the comments.

The current “Alaskan Bush People” star’s extensive post comes in response to Matt Brown’s pointed allegations against his family and the show’s production crew. From his mother and father “stealing” and “withholding” show earnings from him, to “bullies” in the production crew pushing him to the “edge of sanity,” Matt has since detailed a horrible “Alaskan Bush People” experience for himself and much of the family.

Matt has not been on Discovery’s popular outdoors show in two years now, and as such will no longer be under contract or NDAs. This in mind, the floodgates are open, and Matt, too, claims to be telling “his truth.”

Noah’s post shares a screenshot of SAMHSA’s National Hotline. Then, he begins his caption with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s 24-7 help number. Then, he begins a long, indirect explanation of how the “behavior” of an addict and mentally ill individual affects their family.

Noah Brown Makes Startling Public Rebuttal Against Brother Matt

“An Addict’s behavior, is erratic compared to everyone else. But when you have researched, studied and observed an Addict’s behavior it becomes predictable,” Noah begins to his Instagram followers.

“They lash out and do anything that they can to hurt you or the people that you care about. They lie, steal, and break into your house,” he continues, never placing Matt’s name within.

Then, however, he begins labeling specific mental illnesses publicly. By doing so, he draws greater scrutiny and blame to his brother, Matt, in a very harmful way.

“When you pair Addiction with mental illness like paranoid schizophrenia… It makes things not only significantly worse and more extreme but also Dangerous,” Noah states. “Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness… Called a “psychosis”— in which a person cannot tell what is real from what is imagined. The main feature of this disorder is the presence of delusions, which are unshakable beliefs in something untrue.”

What follows reads as an attempt to label “Alaskan Bush People”s Matt Brown as “delusional” through his mental illnesses and addiction, in order to discredit his claims against the family. Noah adds that such individuals will “feed into these delusions is to enable and empower them.”

The ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Truth Will Out

In the end, Noah says his message is “intended to draw attention to the struggle that the families of these individuals are going through on a daily basis.”

Noah concludes his Instagram post with “God Bless and stay strong,” which you can view below.
