Redcon1, one of the world’s fasted growing supplement brands, has announced it would be boycotting the Arnold Classic over Schwarzenegger’s recent controversial “screw your freedom” comments regarding the ongoing pandemic.
Redcon1 Drops Out of Arnold Classic After Schwarzenegger’s Comments
“Arnold entered America with passion that he, too, could achieve the American dream. Of course, it wasn’t easy, and he pushed through language barriers, poverty, and dramatic cultural differences. His dedication to the sport and perseverance helped him not only reach but achieve more than he ever imagined. A guy who had nothing and no advantages, who never made an excuse, and created tremendous success. He became an icon based on his work ethic, his charisma, and his grit. “ Aaron Singerman, Founder.
We’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars being a top sponsor of the event, and this year the exclusive sponsor of the webcast, but we can’t in good conscience continue to support & be involved with someone who has such diametrically opposed beliefs.
With that, we take a hard stance for the rights and freedoms of all Americans, regardless of political affiliation or personal beliefs.
REDCON1 is rooted in the uncompromising unapologetic belief that you are entitled to your opinion and should not be insulted or persecuted for having a varying view.
We choose you and your rights over and above an organization led by Arnold, who isn’t aligned with American views.
“REDCON1 is a mission-based company founded on a simple principle – create the highest quality supplements for people that need to get the most out of their workout and workday,” Redcon1 states on its website.
Redcon1’s words were echoed in their Instagram post below.
