Be honest, would you lick a toilet bowl in exchange for 15 minutes of online fame? Nope? That’s what I thought. Unfortunately for him—and for the rest of the internet—that’s not the case for wannabe influencer Larz, who made headlines back in 2020 when he was admitted to hospital with COVID-19 just days after posting a video of himself licking a toilet bowl in the hopes of going viral on TikTok.

Now, Larz’s revolting past antics have been topped by something even more stupid that he’s recently said. Speaking on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Monday 24 October 2022, the 23-year-old claimed that he stopped speaking to his non-famous relatives when his influence started to grow.

“I’m just more famous than everyone and I won’t talk to people who aren’t unless they get the same amount of followers as me,” Larz told hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O. When Henderson asked him if he ever gets lonely after cutting off his family, Larz simply responded that his famous friends are better company.

“I do miss them sometimes, but I can talk to Cardi B or someone like that,” he said. It should be noted that, although the California-based influencer seems to think A-listers such as Cardi B would happily speak to him, he’s only got around 422,000 followers on Instagram—a number that pales in comparison with the American rapper’s 142 million followers.

Larz went on to reveal that he has nine siblings but has blocked all of them on social media and won’t unblock them until they significantly increase their follower count.

This is not the first time Larz shared such views either. In 2019, he appeared on the chat show Dr. Phil with another influencer, Bameron Kall, where they discussed how they had licked tubs of ice cream and spat mouthwash back into the bottle in viral videos.

It was then that Larz told the TV personality: “I don’t talk to my family. They’re irrelevant. None of them has followers. If they got followers or got rich, I’d probably talk to them again.”

Unsurprisingly considering how little intelligence he’s shown so far, Larz also bragged he had “lots of money” from paid sponsorship deals across his social media accounts, where he posts pictures with luxury cars and celebrities.

Around the same time as Larz’s toilet-licking stunt, Ava Louise—a then 21-year-old social media influencer—went viral for licking a toilet seat as part of the ‘coronavirus challenge’. She recorded herself licking an aeroplane toilet seat on her way to Spring Break and said she didn’t care about putting other people at risk, because it was worth the attention she was receiving.

During an appearance on Dr. Phil, when asked what she was thinking when she decided to lick a toilet seat on the way to Spring Break, Louise responded: “One, I had way dirtier things in my mouth at Spring Break. Two, I bleached it. Three, private plane. I flew down on my sugar daddy’s plane with my best friend. So really, it wasn’t that dirty.”
