In Liver King‘s video, titled “Liver King Confession… I Lied.” he admits, “The truth is…I have been willing to do whatever it takes to bring the Ancestral message mainstream… but the road to progress should never compromise one’s integrity.”
“I can be better… I must be better… I will be better starting immediately. I goddam earned the criticism… and you sure as hell deserve this apology,” Brian writes in the description.
Liver King had been accused of using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) but denied such claims on multiple occasions. In the video he says, “Liver King the public figure was an experiment to spread the message, to bring awareness to the 4,000 people a day who kill themselves, the 80,000 people a day who try to kill themselves. Our people are hurting at record rates.”
“I made it my job to model, teach, and preach a simple elegant solution called ancestral living, then nine ancestral tenets, so our people no longer have to suffer, so that we can collectively express our highest and most dominant form. This is why I fight. This is why I exist,” Brian explained.
Later in the video he admits, “When I talk about the eighty-five percent of people that suffer from self-esteem issues, that’s me. I’m part of that statistic.”
