An Atlanta gym owner is under fire after he put up a sign banning police officers and military members from working out at his facility. Jim Chambers, owner of EAV barbell, said that he put up the sign that said police officers and active military members were not allowed to enter the gym because the majority of the gym members are minorities.
"Do whatever the f--- you want, correctly, except crossfit cultism. No f-----g cops," the sign reads.
Chambers told WXIA-TV that people who work out at his gym are generally uncomfortable with law enforcement. Chambers said that he's taken the sign down due to its vulgarity, but plans on replacing it with a clean version. The Atlanta Police Department said his gym rules will not stop them from responding to an emergency at the gym.
Some people are upset that Chambers is banning law enforcement from using his gym.
Just another sign (no pun intended ) of how ignorant some people are nowadays. sigh...— Brian Kirby (@bkirby70) August 9, 2017
