Jim Jones Accuses L.A. Fitness of Racial Discrimination: ‘I Have Been Profiled and Lied On’ [VIDEO]
Jim Jones is known for posting daily workout videos on his Instagram page, but recently he shared a video of him having a terrible day at L.A. Fitness.
The Dipset member accused the popular fitness chain of racially profiling him after they refused to let use a USB port to charge his photo.
According to Jones, who says he a four-year member of the gym, an employee was rude to him when he asked if could plug his phone into one of their computer's USB ports.
"She told me very nasty [that] she not letting me use [the] computer to charge my phone and [that] I was a simple person," he wrote. "Sheesh! I held my composer though went back to workin out another manager came up to me askin if I wanted to talk about wht happen."
"I said no he need to talk to his employees about how they treat customers [that] just want to charge they phone," he wrote. "So as I'm leavin out I wave [bye] to both [the] mangers at [the] same time and she lies and tell [the] [manager] I gave her [the] middle finger but I was waving at both of them and [the] mangers all saw me waving," he continued. "Then proceeds to ask me if I gave her [the] middle finger when he just watch me wave by to [the] both of them, then they threatened to kick me out and get me terminated.
I did not make u work at la fitness u chose [that] urself so [the] least U could do is be helpful and courteous to all ur customers no matter color race [what] clothes there wearing weather u like rap or country music it's [the] gym we just lifting weights," he added. "It's no science class and it's not Fort Knox it's [the] gym a place people go to get in-tune [wit] there mind, body n soul wit no interruptions especially not from [the] staff they suppose to b as helpful as possible as people try to better there health."
Despite the unfortunate incident, Jones was able to get his workout in, but he is clearly upset about the situation.
