    Was there ever an explanation for the weird chest? Is it just a bad angle?

      That and he could be more overweight than it appears but he’s sucking in his gut.

        I read somewhere that it is a symptom of a certain type of artificial muscle-building drug that goes overboard on the chest muscles but that was a reddit comment from a while ago so its probably bullshit.

          And there’s almost no muscle on that chest. Even if there were, there’s no muscle that can get that thick on the bottom ribs (the serratus for instance is quite flush with your rib cage)

          I think the explanation I heard through a similar source was something about asthma or something similar causing it. Could also be entirely bullshit.

            There was a story a while ago about how these pictures were staged and designed to show the muskrat in the worst ways possible. It was basically super cheap publicity.

            This post is an example of how these pictures propagate and keep that goat a household name.

            Steroidal asthma medication does cause barrel chest. Is that related to the pic? No idea.

      If you watch his latest appearance on Joe Rogans podcast, he actually looks like a normal human. This picture is probably either really just a bad angle, or it’s been photoshopped.

          I sometimes like to watch his videos when he has someone on that’s into conspiracy theories and the likes. About as entertaining as the alex jones gay frogs remix

      i have a similar build to him and when i cut out enough carbs for long enough; i look like him; when i don’t, i’m just plain old good fashioned fat.

      you know he’s cutting out the carbs/fat because there’s not much back fat; but the chest still sticks out like he is still fat, as it does on me; i would sympathize with him if we wasn’t one of the richest men on the planet and a raging asshole at the same time.

    I get the attitude that when mocking shitbags anything is fair game, but this sort of thing lumps in Innocent people with the shitbag.

        When this picture was making the rounds, someone complained that sharing it wouldn’t have any impact on the wealthy and powerful, but would make average people with the condition self-conscious. I’m glad that that was not an absolute truth!

      Yep, I agree. The innocent tiny humanoids that benevolently ride larger humanoid mechs should be compared to this asshole.

        Just like some people like to try to appear morally superior by being offended on other people’s behalf

        Both are fucking obnoxious
