It is indeed very saddening that the Strongman himself has to take down the poster of Arnold Schwarzenegger from his gym. Arnold, who was Mr. World back when he was young, awas considered to be the epitome of fitness and bodybuilding. But a comment from Mr. World’s side got Brian Shaw upset. The comment was regarding the Covid pandemic. Arnold commented that screw your freedom as people were misusing their right to freedom even in these hours of distress.
So, this comment of Arnold created turmoil on social media. And thus, many fans turned against him. Schwarzenegger talked on social media that, People are still taking the virus casually and ignoring the fact that the life-threatening virus is still between. This somehow aggravated the fans. Thus, a fuss was created out of it.
Why did Brain Shaw Show his Contempt Towards Arnold?
Brian was also among the fans who followed Arnold wholeheartedly until Arnold made these statements on social media. Brian considers Arnold a great inspiration for him and others who pursue fitness and bodybuilding as their career. But what aggravated Brian was that Arnold told about sealing freedom from people. As too much freedom gets people.
So on that, Brian made a post on social media writing that Freedom is important. Thus, this was a counter to what Arnold said. Brian also added that it aches his heart to remove the poster of Arnold from his gym’s walls. Brian got emotional, and further added that Arnold became his inspiration since day one, from the day he started training. It is indeed a sad day for Brian because he has to give up on his inspiration and take down his poster from his training area.
He thus decided to boycott the coming Arnold Classic and not be a part of the program either as a sponsor or participant. At the very end of the post, he added that Freedom for Americans doesn’t come for free and he will always stand strong in favor of freedom and one’s right to freedom.
