Pro Gamer “FaZe Censor” Responds to Anabolic Steroid Accusations

Pro Gamer “FaZe Censor” Responds to Anabolic Steroid Accusations

Censor has a passion for bodybuilding and a physique that shows it. So the steroid accusations are to be expected.

Douglas “FaZe Censor” Martin, a professional gamer best known for his Call of Duty videos on YouTube, also spends a lot of time in the gym pursuing his passion for bodybuilding. FaZe Censor has developed a respectable physique and likes showing it off on social media. And anytime someone builds a little bit of muscle, the steroid accusations are sure to follow.

Fans, subscribers and followers of his Twitter, Instagram and YouTube accounts seemed to have spent a lot of time debating whether or not Censor is “natty or not”. So many commenters were convinced Censor was on the juice.

The steroid comments became too much for Censor when he uploaded a photograph of himself wearing a Gymshark Fitness tank top on October 30, 2018.

One admitted steroid user with the username “jphysique7” claimed that he had done so many cycles that he “knows when someone is running gear or not”. And Censor was definitely a steroid user.

“Vicious.goat called Censor a “little man on steroids”.

“Ben9_6dover” asked “my boy on some juice – what’s your stack bro?”

“Bryce.carlini” said “Mmmmmmm steroids”.

Meanwhile, “Nico_el_pico” simply shared the hashtags #steroids and #fake.

Censor says he is 100% natural and has never used anabolic steroids.

Enough was enough. Censor decided to post a YouTube video to address the steroid accusations on November 25, 2018.

“I’m 100% natural, and always have been,” Censor insisted. “You guys could all obtain this physique, as well.”

“I’ve been doing this for seven years… If I ever did take steroids, I would be an absolute unit.You guys would see it. I’d be bench pressing 550 pounds or something like that.”

The only topic that seemed to gain more attention than Censor’s alleged steroid use was his relationship with the “world’s sexiest weathergirl” Yanet Garcia. Censor notably ended their 1-1/2 year relationship so that he could focus more time on playing video games.

Specifically, Censor wanted to dedicate his time towards winning the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship in Douglas, Ohio on August 15-19, 2018. His team did not win. They placed third and took home prize money of $100,000.

However, the majority of Censor’s income comes from monetizing his very popular YouTube channel. With 2.6 million subscribers and an accumulated 500 million views since November 2011, Censor is estimated to earn well over $100,000 per year from YouTube advertisements. His net worth has been estimated to be between $500,000 and $6 million.

Steroids or not, Censor has a lot of things going for him. But long after the “natty or not” debate ends, people will continue to wonder why in the world he ever broke up with Yanet Garcia.
