(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A fitness expert who rose to prominence online by flaunting his lean body while claiming to eat raw liver and bone marrow acknowledged this week that he lied about using performance-enhancing drugs.
Brian Johnson, also known as “Liver King,” previously stated in interviews that he was bullied as a child and thus opted to get jacked to “impose my will.”
A YouTuber named Derek, who operates the popular channel More Plates More Dates, shared an email he claims he received from the Liver King last year, which supposedly displays the thousands of dollars in steroids that the fitness guru takes each month.
In a profanity-laced video released to YouTube on Wednesday, Liver King admitted the claims were genuine.
He said he made the video to apologize for screwing up because he’s humiliated and ashamed after deceiving and misleading so many people.
“Before social media, I was rich and anonymous. And after social media, I’m still rich, but no longer anonymous.”
He said he never expected the kind of exposure in the public eye he received. “It’s been tricky as f*** to navigate.”
“Clearly, I did it wrong. And I’m here now to set the record straight.” “I have used steroids. “And, yes, I am on steroids, which are being checked and treated by a skilled hormone physician,” he explained.
He said he tried different peptide combinations to boost his growth hormone levels, but they didn’t work. He said he tried pharmaceutical-grade growth hormone, and he’s finally succeeded in maintaining therapeutic levels in the normal range.
He says he takes six ccs of testosterone each week, or approximately 120 mg of testosterone per week. He said he does not use additional steroids like Nandrolone or Winstrol because he’s tried them before without success.
“When I talk about the 85% of the population that suffers from self-esteem issues, that’s me,” Liver King said of his use of steroids. I’m a part of that statistic, which is why I work myself to death at the gym.”
