Controversial anti-virus legend John McAfee posted a bizarre tweet on Friday, saying that his enemies had spiked something he ingested.

I apologize for my three days of absence, but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina and just woke up. My enemies maged to spike something that I welcomed. I am, however, more difficult to kill than anyone can imagine. I’m back again.

“I apologize for my three days of absence, but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina and just woke up,” McAfee tweeted. “My enemies managed [sic] to spike something that I [sic] taken. I am, however, more difficult to kill than anyone can imagine. I’m back.”

McAfee followed by a tweet with photos of what appears to be him laying in a hospital bed.

The 72-year-old British-born tech exec founded the computer anti-virus company McAfee Associates in 1987. He eventually resigned from his namesake company in 1994.

In the past few years, McAfee has garnered more attention for his run-ins with the law than his technical ability.

In November 2012, Belize police search for McAfee as a “person of interest” in connection with the murder of the American ex-pat Gregory Viant Faull, who was found dead of a gunshot wound, and who was also a neighbor of McAfee. McAfee refused to answer the police questions, out of fear that they would kill them.

McAfee eventually fled Belize and was spotted in Guatemala, where he was arrested for illegal entry into the country, detained and eventually released to the USA.

In 2013, McAfee’s island home burned down under circumstances he described to Fox News as “suspicious.”

In 2015, McAfee was arrested in Tennessee for driving under the influence and one count of possession of a firearm.
