“I’m here. The Liver King.”

The influencer posted a video of himself outside Buckingham Palace and captioned it as:

"Too many UK Primals have not left the comfort of the cave... complaining about the cold... and not expressing their highest and most dominant form. As the CEO of the Ancestral lifestyle... it's my goddam responsibility to change that."

As Liver King reached the Buckingham Palace gate without a shirt, but with a pair of dumbells, he seemed to have infuriated a number of social media users who felt it was unethical and unsympathetic of the influencer to go between mourners in such a manner.
