Rapper and reality star Jim Jones says he was unjustly mistreated by LA Fitness employees.
Jim Jones asked one of the gym’s employee if he could plug his phone charger into the computer at her desk to charge his phone. The woman angrily refused and told Jim he was a “simple person” for asking, says Jim. He held his composure and continued his workout.
During his workout, Jim says the gym’s manager walked over to him and asked if Jim would like to talk about his exchange, to which Jim replied that the manager should teach his employees how to treat people. As Jim was leaving, he waved goodbye to the manager.
The female employee who initially told Jim off claimed he flipped her the middle finger instead of waving. Although the manager saw Jim waving, he agreed to terminate Jim’s membership, says Jim.
And this is where the video takes off.
