Some believe that a new Netflix video on a psychopath life coach is essentially an advertisement for his company.
The streaming platform just published The Psychopath Life Coach, which chronicles the tale of Lewis Raymond Taylor, a 33-year-old man who has built a fortune from his coaching academy, The Coaching Masters.
Following Taylor’s transformation from prisoner to millionaire, the documentary explores his lifelong struggles with antisocial personality disorder, emotionally unstable personality disorder, and bipolar II disorder.
He was continuously in and out of jail as a result of his tragic and violent childhood, until one event changed his life.
After nearly murdering a guy and leaving him in a coma for three days with terrible injuries, Taylor made a drastic life shift and launched his business.
However, after watching the show, several individuals stated that it appeared to be promotional material.
Many labelled it a ‘long advert’ on social media.
‘If you were considering watching The Psychopath Life Coach on Netflix, let me save you an hour and a half of your life and tell you it’s an advert for the guy’s company,’ one person shared on X, formerly Twitter.
‘A very long, disturbing advert.’
‘The Psychopath Life Coach is just a very long advert. Why do Netflix buy this c***p. It’s so obvious that the subject of the documentary also produced it,’ someone else wrote.
Another added: ‘Starting to believe The Psychopath Life Coach is as good as he claims because he appears to have convinced Netflix to run a 90-minute advert. My god how did someone commission that.’
Others agreed, with one viewer stating it ‘lacked independence’ and was plainly ‘advertorial’.
‘This felt like an advert, when I was expecting a thorough look into his business practices,’ someone wrote.
Ahead of the documentary’s release, Taylor said that he’d battled with ‘very obsessive and very compulsive’ behaviour traits, as well as addictions to sex, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and gambling.
He then went on to explain how using his ‘psychopathic traits’ could be an advantage as a life coach, listing how he was ‘logical, ruthless, assertive, not emotional and doesn’t really have a good perception of fear’.
The businessman also insisted The Coaching Masters is ‘not actually a cult’ adding: ‘I’m not bothered if people think it is.’
The Psychopath Life Coach is streaming on Netflix.
