Kids learn from their parents' actions...
And Gold’s Gym listened!
Seriously, he, a celebrity with a sizable following, shamed the body of someone who worked there… While she was at work. What did he expect?
The gym used Twitter to alert the fans who informed them about the Snapchat that Griffith had been barred from the franchise worldwide. They even tweeted at each concerned user individually—talk about commitment to acceptance. And to my above question about Nathan’s expectations…
Apparently, what he expected was not this.
Despite the fact that this isn’t the first time Nathan has taken heat for fat shaming, it seems that he was surprised that people had a problem with his post. The notoriously volatile “star” did not take kindly to those condemning his decision to shame the trainer publicly and without her knowledge.
Instead, he doubled down on his criticism of the total stranger just days later when speaking to The Real Mr. Housewife.
“I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t get jujitsu lessons from someone who didn’t do jujitsu or get my hair done by a hair stylist with fu**ed up hair. Hence I wouldn’t be going to a trainer that didn’t practice what they preach. To most people, (they think) I’m the biggest douchebag and I really don’t care anymore. The only people who got offended were people who were overweight. If they have a problem with me making a justified comment then they can go f**k themselves. America is becoming filled with a bunch of non-working lazy a** crybabies and I’m getting sick of it. We are so worried about making everyone feel comfortable that it’s f**king up our society.”
