She was asked to leave because her attire was “inappropriate” and apparently people were offended by her tiny baby bump. This is not the first time Planet Fitness has been in the media, previously asking a woman to leave because she was too toned, and another woman was asked to remove a head scarf she wore for religious reasons(they’re being sued over that one).
