Planet Fitness Allegedly Getting Bomb Threats After Viral Post Says Man Shaved in Women’s Bathroom

After everything these people have done, Planet Fitness has the nerve to claim they are victims?

It’s unconscionable.

The Guardian:

More than 40 Planet Fitness locations across the country have received bomb threats after a conservative movement against the gym’s trans-inclusive locker room policy went viral online.

In the weeks since the backlash against the gym chain started in March, at least 43 locations in Connecticut, Florida, Alabama and other states have received bomb threats, according to progressive media watchdog group Media Matters.

The group said that swift social media backlash, centering on anti-trans rhetoric, is reminiscent of last year’s boycott against Bud Light. Sales of the beer brand fell last year after the company partnered with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney in an advertisement.

Planet Fitness said in a statement that the company has “been working closely with local and federal authorities to investigate these threats and will continue to take action to ensure the safety of our members and employees”.

The backlash started with the rightwing social media account Libs of TikTok posting on X a video of a woman saying that there was “a man shaving in a women’s bathroom” at her Planet Fitness location in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Do you know that Planet Fitness has signs that say you’re not allowed to grunt while lifting?

Do you know they don’t have a squat rack?

This was always a tranny gym, long before anyone ever heard of trannies.

I’m so sick of hearing about “bomb threats.”

If someone made a bomb threat, then arrest them. It’s illegal.

But no one ever gets arrested, do they?
