I didn’t read whatever article was talking about him getting fired for discrimination, but I’m sure there is more to it than JUST “oh, they thought I had too much muscle so they fired me.” At my job, they randomly drug test, which can include testing for steroids if they felt like it. If he tested positive (not saying he did, just giving a reason why he might have gotten fired, while claiming it was just from being big), then they are perfectly within their rights to fire him. That to me is bullshit, as I don’t agree with the laws on AAS, but that also would not be getting fired just for being a bodybuilder. Again, not saying him being fired has anything to do with illegal drugs, just giving an example.
I just can’t make any sense out of him supposedly getting fired for being a high level bodybuilder, and would have to see CNN’s reasoning to make any real opinion. It could have been AAS, it could have been him having to take too much time off to compete, it could have been something stupid like eating while not on a lunch break, which some places do have rules against. Maybe he was just an idiot or an asshole and he’s just trying to make or find an excuse for him getting fired. I just don’t buy that it was simply for being a bodybuilder.[/quote]
He has worked there for several years so if this was due to some attitude problem, I seriously doubt they let it slide for 5 years or so before doing something about it…but yes, until all facts are known, we can’t make a final judgment.
