While Bronson didn't pinpoint the exact cause of his medical emergency, the Vice Records signee shared food pics -- including baked whitefish with rendered sea oil, caribou stew, and raw and cooked whale -- to Instagram prior to his hospital visit.
"Alaskan Mammal Tasting #fuckthatsdelicious," he wrote in the caption of another photo of sliced seafood.
He also offered some words to the wise on Twitter for those food-shaming exotic delicacies. "Don't ever knock someone else's heritage and what they eat just because it's not familiar to you," he tweeted. "Native people live off the land, try it."
When reached by Billboard, a rep for Bronson said: "The emergency surgery was due to complications from ongoing hernia issues from Bronson’s powerlifting days. He’s doing great and is in good spirits."
