I’m not going to invest much time on what I consider a rather petty matter, but it has come out that Bodybuilding legend Lee Priest has upset a brother of Zyzz, the young man that grew a small empire with millions of followers worldwide. In my limited experience of the man, Zyzz was a free spirit who also happened to have a great, aesthetic physique with good lines for a fitness model. However when Lee Priest, a man known for speaking his mind, was asked what he thought of Zyzz he said ‘I think he’s an idiot’, and when Zyzz’s brother interjected by saying ‘why do you call him an idiot, you’re speaking ill of the dead’ (or something along those lines), Priest responded by saying ‘if he wasn’t an idiot he wouldn’t be dead’.
These are the facts, I won’t be offering my opinion on this matter as it is extremely sensitive, but I will say that Zyzz’s way of life didn’t fit in with Priest’s ideology, but then again, Priest’s doesn’t exactly fit in with many other peoples… so who’s to say what’s right or wrong. Priest was asked his opinion, so he gave it, it’s as simple (or complicated) as that.
