Gold's Gym Manages to Fat Shame, Be Misogynistic, and Offend Pears in One Post
First they came for my significant birthing hips, and I did nothing. Then they came for the pears, and I was like, what the hell? What did those pears do for you?
Gold’s Gym Dreamland, an Egyptian franchise of the fitness giant, recently posted this really swell ad on their Facebook. It went over well.
They apologized…in a very specific way.
As Scary Mommy points out, the pear is only one example of shamey posts on the site:
But this story has a happy ending, thanks entirely to the internet being a magical place of weirdos and wonder. Because now every Gold’s Gym Facebook post is being pear-bombed.
On behalf of all pear-shaped women, fuck that. Fuck it all. Be whatever size you goddamn want, who gives a pear-shaped fuck about it? It doesn’t matter if you’re pear-shaped, eggplant-shaped, parsnip-shaped, or one sexy-ass blueberry. Fuck ‘em. I’m just gonna go live my pear life and not give six dicks about it.
Me IRL. BYEE.
