WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) – A year after his demon-era Instagram live sessions went viral at the start of the pandemic, Justin Laboy has rebranded his social media fame and added a TV talk show starring Diddy’s son and a constant output of conversation start contributions.

The 29-year-old former professional basketball player, whose friendship with NBA star Kevin Durant helped boost his online profile early on, was yelled at by Beyonce and sat down with Chris Brown and Saweetie for the new Revolt TV show, the Bären bears the name of its social page: Respectful Justin.

The Valentine’s Day premiere marked the first time many of Laboy’s fans had a chance to see his face. He’d remained masked in most of the photos, adding a sense of secrecy to his identity, even as his hilarious and apologetically risky observations about sex and relationships grew in popularity.

Shadow and mask on, Jubilee 11s laced up while recently promoting the TV show at a West Hollywood hotel. Laboy said he was not hiding, “I am an open book.” Laboy (pronounced LUH boy) is his first name, not a nickname, and the social side has always been his creation, he said.

Laboy says he grew up the youngest of five children in a “broken family” in Queens, New York, and had an early ambition to “break generational curses.” He ended his career as a professional basketball player overseas after torn Achilles tendons and the realization that “I wouldn’t be the next Michael Jordan or LeBron James”.
