A Mexican family was kicked out of a pool at the Flex Fitness and Recreation Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina for playing Spanish music. A video of the apparent racial discrimination incident was shared by Bianca Figueroa (@esposattoxica) on TikTok, where it quickly went viral and received more than six million views.

The video shows the Mexican family confronted by a police officer who showed up at the venue. A woman from the Mexican family dressed in red then explains what happened in the gym. She told the officer: “It hurts me to see the inequality and the racism. I’ll explain what happened to you and we’ll leave because I understand your job; you are an employee, “was the English overlay description of her speech. The woman then possibly referred to the other guests in the pool when she said,” She has music in English and does not say anything. But we had Spanish music and it came with a bad attitude and disconnected our speaker and tried to take it with you. “

The woman said that one of the white women by the pool complained about the music. Then she said, “Do you know why she called you? Because I said so [the owner] “You are not a businesswoman. They’re not intellectual because we pay customers. ‘ Like you, she should have come to us and said: ‘Please turn off your music.’ But no, she came with an attitude and forcibly turned off our speakers. “The woman added that they would take the owner to court but” would go for you. Because I respect you, not for her. “

Who Owns Flex Fitness?

According to a local news report from September last year, Tangi Brown is the owner of the Flex Fitness and Recreation Center. Speaking to WYFF News 4, she said the gym closed in late March due to the pandemic, but she reopened her business in May 2020 and opposed North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper’s mandate to do commercial deals due to the global health crisis shut down.

Brown said the sheriff gave her permission to operate. However, when the news channel contacted the Henderson County sheriff’s office, Maj Frank Stout said the agency had not specifically allowed stores to be opened. That being said, the sheriff’s department did not strictly enforce the governor’s orders. As a result, all open gyms were expected to maintain social distance and disinfect surfaces frequently.

“If we had to stay closed until now, we would never have survived,” said Brown. “Families are losing their business, just as my family could have lost this business. It’s sad because a lot of people work really hard to have what they have and it’s their life and their life is gone. They lost that. “

Flex Fitness is supposed to beat people up

In a follow-up video, Figueroa claimed that the owners of Flex Fitness “beat up” people defending the Mexican family. She drew viewers’ attention to a comment under her first TikTok, allegedly posted by the owner’s daughter, claiming that a Mexican had referred to her as “White B *** h”. Figueroa said the Mexican woman first responded to a racist tendency that was used against her.

After the incident, the Flex Fitness and Recreation Center was bombarded with one-star reviews on Yelp and Google, with humorous declarations of “I was kicked out”. “I got kicked out for opening a bag of Doritos nacho cheese and was told the only acceptable taste was cool ranch,” one comment said. Another said, “I was wearing a Virgen de Guadalupe necklace and they threw bleach at me while saying 10 Ave Maria. NOT RECOMMENDED! ” The company has also disabled its Facebook page.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help Veronica Ramirez and the Mexican family find a replacement and has raised more than $ 12,000 to date for the $ 100,000 goal. “Our goal is to achieve equality in Henderson County and any surrounding area that happens to come across this page. As well as providing the necessary funds for the representation and relocation in this matter, ”it says on the GoFundMe page.
