YouTube ‘primal living’ guru Liver King, who built a $100m fitness empire, admits he’s actually on steroids
The influencer claimed his ripped physique was purely down to his raw meat diet and rigorous exercise regime.
He knows damn well he took those roids to achieve a look so he could shill stuff online. How you gonna lie in your coming clean about lying video?Johnson’s facade, however, has now dramatically dropped. In a video uploaded to his YouTube he revealed: "I lied, and I misled a lot of people…Yes, I've done steroids, and yes, I am on steroids, monitored and managed by a trained hormone clinician."
Johnson blamed his actions on his insecurities: "When I talk about the 85 percent of the population that suffers from self-esteem issues, that's me. I'm part of that statistic.”
The persona, he said, was “an experiment to spread the message [and] to bring awareness to the 4,000 people a day who kill themselves, the 80,000 people a day that try to kill themselves,” adding that his “fight” was to promote “ancestral living” as a solution.
Johnson also confessed that he wasn’t fully aware of the consequences, saying: “Before social media I was rich and anonymous, and after social media, I'm still rich but no longer anonymous…I never expected this kind of exposure in the public eye.”
