It feels like it was just yesterday that Derek from the YouTube channel More Pilates More Dates exposed emails from Liver King, confessing that he’s just been on steroids this whole time.
If you aren’t too familiar, Liver King is a fitness influencer who preaches the “ancestral way of life,” which consists of intense workouts, and eating raw meats and organs, saying that the lifestyle is what made him as ripped as he is.
But nah, he was just juiced up. And not like average dude juiced up… he was on more steroids than the average body builder.
Since the emails leaked, Liver King (real name Brian Johnson) sent out an apology that felt as fake as you could imagine.
And with a following as large as his, you know he was inspiring young dudes to eat some liver, buy some of his supplements, and spend who knows how much time and money following his lifestyle path… all while he’s been profiting $100 million a year off of complete BS.
With that being said, somebody has filed a lawsuit against Liver King. And I’m talking about a whopping $25 million class-action lawsuit, according to the New York Post.
The man is New Yorker Christopher Altomare, who has filed a lawsuit against Liver King, and his companies, Ancestral Supplements, LLC and the Fittest Ever, LLC.
The lawsuit accuses Liver King of falsely preaching the “Nine Ancestral Ways of Life,” and constantly appearing shirtless to show off his physique, when in reality his brand included “a dangerous and life threatening diet,” causing a number of his followers to suffer from food-borne illnesses.
On top of that, the diet, consisting of liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, raw bull testicles, and raw sweetbreads, was unsustainable for customers to stay with, ultimately resulted in people turning to Liver King’s supplements.
The suit said:
“Liver King persuaded millions of consumers to adhere to, or abide by, the Eat Tenet by repeatedly making representations to consumers that his near-perfect physique, and optimal health, were solely attributable to his adoption of the Ancestral Tenets, predominantly the Eat Tenet.”
Reps for Liver King say he has not been served yet:
“We have not been served with any lawsuit at this point and it would not be appropriate for us to comment on pending litigation.”
Who knows what the end result will be, but it sounds like this whole steroid debacle isn’t going away anytime soon for ol’ Liver King.
