After Krispy Kreme announced that it is offering a free donut to recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine, a New Jersey gym owner put his own spin on the incentivized push.
Ian Smith, the owner of The Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, NJ, took to Twitter to say that he offers free gym memberships to those who don’t get vaccinated.
In the viral tweet, Smith wrote: “We believe in health, the real way, in exercise, a good diet, lots of vitamin D, zinc and an environment to de-stress.”
In the light of @krispykreme giving free donuts for getting the CVD vaccine, here at @AtilisGym we are giving free memberships to everyone who does not get vaccinated. We believe in health, the real way, in exercise, a good diet, lots of vitamin D, zinc, and an environment to de-stress.

Since posting the tweet Tuesday, Smith said he received a lot of hate mail as of Thursday morning.
I got a lot of hate mail today. I said something wrong?
