Jason Genova

Jason Genova

Jason Genova (born on February 22, 1985) is an amateur bodybuilder and YouTube personality. As of November 2017, Genova has over 42,000 subscribers on YouTube and a dedicated legion of fans.

Early Life

Jason Genova was born in Northridge, California to a Jewish mother and Italian father. They moved to Florida when Genova was a child. [1]

Fitness (YouTube)

Jason founded his YouTube channel in 2008 when a man discovered Jason at the gym and realized his potential. Jason's mental handicap prevents him from fully realizing the consequences of his actions, but his weakness is also his strength.

Not restricted by normal inhibitions, Jason calls for order 66s on his enemies; the order 66 alludes to an event at the end of the Clone Wars (Star Wars) in which the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic turned against their Jedi commanders and terminated them, bringing about the destruction of the Jedi Order.

On September 21, 2015, Jason Genova ordered a 66 on fellow bodybuilder Rich Piana. In his video, Genova's reasoning was because Piana did not sponsor him. When he ordered the 66, he encouraged his followers - also known as "Genova's Witnesses - to execute an online attack on Piana via social media.

According to Piana, he checked his Instagram account and found about 200+ disturbing life-threatening comments on it.

These comments included things like cutting his head off, stabbing him, and threats claiming they know where he lives.

In addition, his girlfriend at the time -Sara Heimisdottir- was also receiving threats on her social media. He also claimed that he had never heard of Jason Genova before receiving these threats.

Piana elaborated on his side of the story:

His reasoning for attacking me was I never invited him to be an athlete on my 5% team? Well I didn’t even know who he was or never even seen a pic of him then 100’s of threatening comments just started appearing on all my social media. I started deleting and blocking one after the other for hours and they just kept coming but eventually they stopped. Then the next day it started all over again but not nearly as many. Then I realized it was him because he could not make new profiles fast enough.

In May 2016, Jason Genova met Rich Piana at a bodybuilding expo in Orlando.

When Piana found out that Genova ordered a 66 on him and asked him why, Genova responded that he was just joking.

He then promised that he would never do that again.

As a way of settling the matter with Jason, Rich said that he would end the animosity between the two if he agreed to a 5-second slap-boxing match.

Genova agreed, and he Piana slapped him several times.

The video was eventually posted online, and Piana received backlash due to Genova's mental disability.

Piana apologized to him over the phone, and they collaborated on multiple videos together before Piana passed away in 2017.
