Liver King Wants To Talk About Alleged Steroid Use, But Only On A “Big Mainstream, Long-Form Podcast”

Speaking of lies, online fitness influencer Brian Johnson, a.k.a ‘Liver King,’ became the subject of controversy this week when a rival shared what he claims to be evidence that Johnson has been using steroids.

For those who are just getting caught up, Johnson has amassed millions of followers on social media (1.7 on Instagram and about 3.5 million on TikTok) by promoting what he calls the “ancestral lifestyle.” 

While anyone with eyes will likely not be surprised if Johnson was taking steroids to keep himself jacked, he has always vehemently denied taking performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), and instead pushed his own line of supplements, Ancestral Supplements. 

He fancied himself as the poster boy for “primal living,” throwing spears, looking like a caveman, and encouraging a questionable diet of raw food, which featured a lot of — you guessed it — liver, and also apparently testicles, lungs, and other animal organs. The lifestyle he promotes consists of following what he calls his “nine tenets”: sleep, eat, move, shield, connect, cold, sun, fight, and bond. And maybe a 10th: not wearing shirts.

On Tuesday, a rival named Derek (apparently no known last name) posted an hour-long video detailing how in 2021, Johnson was allegedly on a human growth hormone (HGH) regimen that cost him $11,000 per month, based mostly on what he claims are leaked emails sent from a Liver King email address. 

Derek’s video has been viewed 2 million times in the past two days. Johnson has yet to address the matter directly. He has kept posting, as usual, ignoring all comments related to the scandal. But he did respond to an email from the Daily Dot, and said, without confirming or denying anything, that “in a weird way, I’m grateful for the recent events that have shed light on this complicated-as-fuck topic.”

Johnson said that he would like to go on a “big mainstream, long-form podcast” to “openly discuss this opportunity — to be better.” He also told the publication that with the right audience, he pledged “to tell all.”
