UPDATE: June 6, 2018, 5:30 p.m. PDT Updated with news of Cheif Knowledge Officer Russell Berger's official termination. UPDATE: June 6, 2018, 4:26 p.m. PDT Updated with comments from CrossFit CEO Greg Glassman. A CrossFit executive was fired on Wednesday after calling LGBTQ pride a "sin." Prior to being terminated, he was placed on unpaid leave for a string of homophobic tweets. In the now-deleted tweets, CrossFit's Chief Knowledge Officer Russell Berger congratulated CrossFit Infiltrate, a CrossFit gym in Indianapolis, for canceling their Pride-themed workout. Pride events, including parades and community gatherings, are hosted across the country in June. SEE ALSO: Celebrate pride by streaming these queer-as-hell movies and series on Netflix In an email to its members, the gym's owners said they shut down the event because they "value health and wellness, and they believe that this event does not.” According to Fox 59, a follow-up email from the gym to a member asking for clarification said: Berger tweeted his support for the gym's owners. "As someone who personally believes celebrating "pride" is a sin, I'd like to personally encourage #CrossFitInflitrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an @indypride workout." Then, as if he needed to make it more homophobic, he said he believes Pride events are a "celebration of sin" and then claimed that people calling him out on Twitter were "an existential threat to freedom of expression." it looks like crossfit execs are celebrating pride month a little differently than other corporations pic.twitter.com/k1HGPm8PRA — real housecat (@tousleshommes) June 6, 2018 Twitter users also took screenshots of Berger's other tweets, some of which he had deleted.
