    Rich Piana in medically induced coma

    According to TMZ.

    "Pro bodybuilder Rich Piana was placed into a medically induced coma this week after suffering a medical emergency at his Florida home, law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports.

    46-year-old Piana has competed and won several bodybuilding competitions over the years -- including Mr. California -- and has become an Instagram sensation, racking up more than 1 million followers.

    Law enforcement sources tell us ... emergency personnel responded to a possible overdose call at Piana's home on Monday afternoon. When they arrived, Piana was unresponsive and was transported to a nearby hospital where he was placed into a medically induced coma.

    Unclear how he's doing now. We're working on the story."

    Probably tried to off himself after the whole racist tape thing came out.
    I bet that hurt his brand a ton.

    Damn shame hope he recovers well. I am sure he was trying to get away from the pain of shame etc..
    He is coming down from a peak and that shit sucks.

    I hope he can coast down with dignity. He has a lot of haters. It can get overwhelming. Good luck and God bless Mr. Piana.

    Really if you think about it the guy wont get any bigger or more famous. He has reached that point in the game where he has to come down from his prime. Not everyone can do it as gracefull as dorian yates.

    I bet that everything will be blamed on his steroid use and they will completely ignore the actual drug that he over dosed on.

    Guys I've done some sick twisted sadistic shit in my time (that has resulted in death) but I wouldn't wish a medically-induced coma on my worst enemy.

    Whatever you think of Piana, give the guy a fucking break as he's in a medically induced coma ffs

    You do understand that they're loading him up with barbiturates in an attempt to save his brain.

    You still want to take this piss out of him after a team of medical doctors (and nuerologists) have decided that the best thing they can do for him is to load him up with barbiturates in an attempt to save his brain.

    I've been in some fucked up situations in my life........... surgery to re-attach tendons after self-inflicted injuries........ 4 and a half weeks in a hospital bed with a severe liver injury............. transferred from a remand prison to the loonie bin..........

    but I can safely say I've never been given barbiturates to induce a coma TO SAVE MY FUCKING BRAIN.

    Cop the fuck on. We all like muscles and we all like being strong, but cop the fuck on. The chap might die soon, so unless he's been molesting children or burning down houses with families inside, give the cunt a break.

    So we are supposed to sympathize with you to because you more than likely were a cutter and hit a tendon?

    Come on. I hope he doesn't die. Thsts it. He's not in my prayers or daily thoughts.

    Same for you, so your mad because he don't care you possibly tried to off yourself?

    Maybe its that line of thinking that out you there in the first place.

    Rich got a hot wife, drives Bentleys and has a home the size of Texas.

    He made his bed and that's that.

    No, that's not my line of thinking.

    I live in Northern Ireland. If you join any church here, you'll probably meet someone who murdered people during the Troubles here. I spoke to one guy face-to-face who had walked up to a few people with a handgun and shot them in the chest, killing them. We had a conversation for a little while, and I almost told him that I felt that what I did was worse than what he did (i.e. abusing someone to the point of suicide).

    Throughout our life, we all have people who we hate and who we wish weren't around. Some of us choose to forgive. Others resort to more drastic measures. I can safely say though, from my own personal life experience, that suicide is the worst way to go. And even worse if you deliberately caused the suicide of another person.

    For what it's worth, my forearm injury was as a result of me putting my elbow through a glass window. Shards of glass went into my arms and chopped two tendons. I had anger issues at the time.

    I don't know what Piana did. I don't know if it was accidental, or semi-deliberate, or deliberate, but I can sure as fuck tell you that he doesn't need to be ridiculed and derided by the likes of YOU who contribute fuck all to this forum other than to take shots at people.

    If you don't like me, or don't like my poems, or don't like my faggot bottles of Rosé wine, then fine. That's ok, I mean considering I'm not in a MEDICALLY INDUCED FUCKING COMA.

    Don't be a fuckpig all your life. A few years or decades from now, you might think back on Piana's death and think "aye, maybe the cunt didn't deserve to die". You might even go the same way.

    In the mean time, don't lose sight of the fact that a human being deserves to be treated as a human being.

    To my knowledge, Piana hasn't molested any children, hasn't murdered anyone, and hasn't burned down any houses with families insides. If you still think it's laughable that he's in a MEDICALLY INDUCED FUCKING COMA then I can only suggest you go to the Hare Krishna's for a month, or do 10 days of silence with a Buddhist group, or do a residential 3-month rehab, or go find a nice mosque or born-again Christian church near you.

    Piana is a human being, just like me and you. I hope and pray that he makes it through this.

    Theres so much slashing of ones character going on and the reciprocal loop that it's really annoying.

    Rich Piana is obviously an attention seeking personality, which has its pros and cons. The pros are he built a whole brand by himself (I think), something extremely few can. The cons are when he gets this kind of negative attention, he probably feels it many magnitudes more than others do.

    Perhaps Rich Piana didn't do it for me in regards to motivating/inspiring me, Ronnie Coleman did during my teens and thats why when I go to the gym people stare in awe as I load the bar for deads or squats... For all those who he helped (which is undeniably in the millions), he deserves credit for the positivity he contributed to in this world.

    And lets not forget to not create another loop of slashing peoples character...

    Let me say this. There is a human life at stake here. Yes it's his own wrong doing and yes most ppl don't like him. But like him hate him at least be respectful. U can smash him all you want when he is back up again but till then can we be at least sympathetic? Or don't say anything bad? What he took to get into this coma is irrelevant steroids will be blame.

    I actually don't care who blames what. More concerned about the individual in a medically-induced coma. I don't care how he got into that situation.

    I'm looking over his posts here, and he seems to have taken shots at plenty of able-bodied people. Can't see any instances of him taking any shots at people in medically induced coma's.

    As an aside........ I only let myself write one poem per day but it's past midnight now so I can start on 'Ode to a Bodybuilder'.

    He hit his head and are keeping him in a coma to prevent seizure. I dont know much but its a toss up at that point.

    Just terrible. Bad way for a legend to go, he better wake up.
