On Monday afternoon, Jim Jones shared an Instagram video in which he accused the staff at L.A. Fitness of racial profiling. The footage was shot at the chain’s Los Angeles location on S. Flower Street, where employees apparently refused to let Jones charge his phone on their computer.
“So, I’m in LA Fitness and I’m trying to get a charger, and they’re trying to kick me out and terminate me,” he said in the video while confronting two employees. “The lady lied on me. She said that I gave her the middle finger in L.A. Fitness, and then she tried to tell me that I’m getting terminated for me asking for a charger in L.A. Fitness. I have yet said anything to anyone. I haven’t raised my voice to anyone. I haven’t did anything to anyone. So, right now I feel like I’m being profiled in L.A. Fitness.”
