supplement company REDCON1 drop Terminator star
Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has been dropped by a bodybuilding sponsor following his "anti-American" rant about "screwing your freedoms."
The spokesperson for the sports supplement company REDCON1 said the company decides to ditch the former California governor because of “anti-America” comments, USAToday reported.
Not only that, but the company is also pulling out of next month's Schwarzenegger bodybuilding event.
The spokesperson told The Hill in a statement:
"We understand the importance of public safety as well as the responsibilities of all event organizers."
"These are unprecedented times, and we’re aligned with public safety for all," the spokesperson added.
"We elected to discontinue support due to Arnold’s comment, ‘Screw Your Freedoms.’"
"With the global influence, Arnold beholds we find that ideology dangerous and anti-America and community."
REDCON1 founder Aaron Singerman addressed dropping Schwarzenegger as a sponsor, saying that as a “patriotic pro-freedom brand,” they “can’t support his opinion with our dollars.”
Schwarzenegger told CNN host Bianca Golodryga and retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman that people who are still are in denial need a reality check.
"Because you are supposed to protect your fellow Americans around you."
