According to Daily Mail , nutrition company REDCON1 announced to stop supporting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s fitness events, after the star’s statement regarding vaccination in a recent interview.

Previously, responding to CNN , the Terminator actor shared that a virus (corona) is killing people en masse. 

“You have the right not to wear a mask, but you know, you’re an asshole if you don’t comply with that rule.

Because doing that is how you protect yourself and protect the Americans around you,” he said.

Schwarzenegger believes the best way is to get vaccinated, wear a mask, wash your hands at all times and keep your distance. However, regulations “take away freedom” and his statement received negative reactions.

Responding to Schwarzenegger’s statement, Aaron Singerman – founder of REDCON1 – wrote on Instagram: “Anyone who says ‘take away your freedom’ is not American, and REDCON1 is a brand that supports freedom.

We support freedom and therefore we do not want Arnold to go against this principle.”

Singerman said he has attended the Ohio-based Arnold Classic fitness show for 15 years and sponsored the event for the past 10 years.

“We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to sponsor this program. However, we cannot continue to support and accompany someone whose beliefs are contrary to our company” – Singerman stated.

According to Daily Mail , Arnold Schwarzenegger has repeatedly shared his views on preventing Covid-19. However, this is the first time he has been opposed.
