The gym owner said he only confronted the vet because other members of the gym complained.
An Army veteran who wore a Trump shirt to the gym he’d attended for eight years, was allegedly labeled a racist and asked not to don the apparel again.
Staff Sgt. Jake Talbot wore a “2016 Trump For President” shirt to CDY Fitness in Troy, Missouri, and was quickly told by gym owner Liz Drew that the shirt was racist and offensive, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
Talbot says he began working out before being approached by Drew who told him the shirt was offensive. “It’s offensive to her and others. It represents racism, and it’s racist,” Drew reportedly told him, according to Talbot.
Talbot continued working out and soon after posted a video to Facebook describing the encounter.
