In the video, the YouTuber shared email exchanges between Johnson and a body building coach.

He also pushed products and supplements to his followers under the guise of his natural lifestyle, claiming that they helped him build his impressive muscular frame.
Netizens react to Liver King consuming steroids
While several followers were surprised by the influencer consuming steroids, many critics showed no adverse reaction. Many claimed that they expected so from the beginning of his career. An array of netizens slammed his nine ancestral ways of life that he lives by and expressed disbelief at the Liver King gaining popularity online. A few tweets read:
Joe Rogan sceptical over Liver King’s natural lifestyle
In the past, the podcast host expressed that he believes that Johnson’s lifestyle was a “gimmick.” Speaking about Johnson, Joe Rogan said on a podcast:
“No, that’s a gimmick, that guy. He’s got an a*s filled with steroids is what he got. That’s not a natural body. That guy is shooting all kinds of s&&t into his system to achieve that kind of physique. I don’t even know if there’s a benefit in eating raw meat. From what I’ve understood, talking to experts, there’s actually a lot gained from cooking because the protein becomes more bioavailable.”
Johnson has always claimed to eat a pound of raw liver each day. Speaking about steroids, he has said in the past that he does not “touch the stuff.”
