Talbot refused, cancelled his membership and took to social media to discuss the incident.

According to LifeZette, The former Army staff sergeant wore a “2016 Trump for President” shirt to work out — but was asked by staff at the gym to change his shirt.

He revealed this in a now-viral Facebook video he posted earlier in the week.

As of Saturday morning, the video had been viewed more than 54,000 times and received nearly 2,000 comments.

During the video he says, In it, he says, “I just left CDY Fitness here in Troy, where I was working out. And the owner, Liz, came up to me and said the Trump shirt I had on was offensive and that I needed to remove it to work out there, and [that] it’s linked to racism — which I friekin’ hate that word whenever people use it. It’s used way too loosely. It’s 2019. Get the hell over it. It’s not racism.”

WATCH:

CDY Fitness has since deleted it’s Facebook Page, a direct result of the outrage CDY Fitness received over the incident.

Talbot had worn the shirt to the gym on several occasions in the past according to Drew, but she had received many complaints about it, including from African-American and Hispanic gym members.

“I said, ‘Jake, we’re friends and I love you, but I’d appreciate it if you didn’t wear that shirt in the future,’”  she told him.

“This was about protecting the comfort level of all members and keeping politics out of my gym. Sadly, it has done just the opposite,” she added.

RIght Before CDY deleted its Facebook page,  the owners generated a post to the page saying they did not want their gym to be a political forum and that they wanted “everyone to feel safe and comfortable there.”

“I am deeply saddened by the amount of hate this event has garnered,” the post read. “I will personally and publicly continue to defend my stance for tolerance and against hate no matter the financial consequence.”

Talbot — who had worked out there for years — and two other members canceled their memberships, also according to LifeZette.

“I’m not going to go back to an establishment like that,” he said, as KSDK noted.

The Blue Checkmark Brigade have come out in full force just like we knew that they would. After all, they can’t stand the idea of not having an iron grip on all your information. They don’t want Conservatives to have anything that prevents the big tech oligarchs from spying, censoring, and banning anything that isn’t “politically correct” or is “out of context” as Facebook loves to say as an excuse for suppression.

All you have to do is take the SIM card out of your old phone and pop it into SIM card slot in the Freedom Phone.  It’s really is that easy to get your privacy back. And the dual SIM card slots are so that you can add additional storage for things like photos, videos, or anything you want!

First, The Daily Beast wrote an article saying that the Freedom Phone is, “just a budget Chinese phone“. This couldn’t be further from the truth. While it is an incredible deal, a mere $449.99 with code “MAGA” (compared to a $700-$1000 iPhone12) it IS NOT manufactured in China. Although the Daily Beast might have a “one-China policy” The Freedom Phone is actually manufactured in Hong Kong. You’ll remember Hong Kong from the HUGE protests where they waved American flags and fought hard against the authoritarian Chinese government who was trying to take control of their country. Patriots recognize Patriots, and that’s why Freedom Phone is PROUD to have their product manufactured in a country that is actually fighting with boots on the ground against one of the biggest enemies of the USA.
