If you're just signing onto Twitter, you're probably seeing that Planet Fitness is trending. It's all because some guy named Boosie made transphobic comments about Dwayne Wade's young child, who recently came out as transgender.
Here's what he said: "Dwyane Wade, you gone too f*cking far, dawg. That is a male. A 12-year-old. ... Don't cut his dick off, bruh."
The manager at Boosie's local Planet Fitness told him he was banned from the popular fitness center. Boosie then made some homophobic comments and recorded it.
"Do not go to Planet Fitness, they racist, they haters. They just put me out Planet Fitness for what I said about Dwyane Wade son. And they said I said in a video one of they employees was f****ts or some sh*t. ... They got roaches in that b*tch. Manager who was gay refused to let me n Planet Fitness because of my past actions on social media about gender etc. They racist, they have roaches, n they shower water don't get hot !! Get out ya feelings lil b*tch... B*tch u want a gay child but don't nobody want to have a baby for yo sissy a** now u mad."
He shared it on social media. Boosie finished the post with a pretty interesting hashtag: #roachfitness.
Boosie is a rapper who hails from Louisiana (I had to look him up because I've never heard of him). He's been around since the 1990s and has produced many albums. He's even worked with A-list rappers.
My Two Cents
Planet Fitness is a JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE. If you go in and you're making transphobic and homophobic comments, you're going to be kicked out. It doesn't matter who you are, if you are verbally threatening to people, expect consequences. I side with Planet Fitness on this one. Zero tolerance for transphobes and homophobes!
