Annoyed by the Krispy Kreme deal who gives donuts to vaccinated people Against COVID-19, a New Jersey gym owner decided to offer free memberships to people who refuse to get vaccinated.
Ian Smith, owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr with Frank Trumbetti, made the offer earlier this week:
Last summer, Smith and Trumbetti were arrested for keeping their facilities open, in defiance of a state order that required indoor gyms to be closed. Although a New Jersey city council later voted to revoke the gym’s business license, it reopened anyway.
Last December, Smith boasted of racking up $ 1.2 million in fines for ignoring COVID-19 regulations.
Earlier this year, Smith was kicked out of American Airlines for refusing to wear a mask on his flight home after speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando.
People on Twitter had a lot to say about his offering:
