A fitness instructor is being accused of tearing down a poster of kidnapped Israeli kids outside a popular Los Angeles gym … and he says he’s “proud” to be doing it.
The incident went down Wednesday outside the iconic Gold’s Gym in Venice — the man crumpled up the poster and chucked it in the trash. He’s asked about why he ripped it down, telling the man filming he’s proud of himself, before adding “Get the f*** away.”
The man in question has been identified as model and fitness trainer Zaid Shaat — his social media profiles say he’s a “Lifetime Natural Athlete,” and that he loves to “motivate people to live a healthy lifestyle. I am passionate about helping people achieve their goals and dreams.”
Worth mentioning that Joe Gold, the founder of Gold’s Gym, was Jewish … and folks online have been letting Shaat have it over what he did outside the L.A. hot spot.
As you know, Hamas first attacked Israel on Oct. 7 killing thousands and taking more than 200 civilians hostage — all of which sparked war as Israel retaliates.
The problem, and growing controversy, involves the deaths of civilian Palestinians killed as Israel launches airstrikes into Gaza aiming of snuffing out Hamas.
