Richard Spencer loses gym membership after confrontation

White nationalist Richard Spencer lost his gym membership this week after being approached by a Georgetown University professor.

According to a report by BuzzFeed News, Spencer’s membership was revoked after Christine Fair, an associate professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, described her encounter with Spencer online.

“First, I want to note that this man is a supreme coward,” Fair wrote. “When I approached this flaccid, sorry excuse of a man and asked ‘Are you Richard Spencer,’ this pendulous poltroon said ‘No. I am not.'”

The gym later notified Spencer that his membership is terminated “effective immediately.” Spencer confirmed to BuzzFeed News that he had been kicked out of his gym following the interaction with the professor.

“I don’t know [why they revoked it],” Spencer told BuzzFeed. “I was a well-behaved member of this gym, I did not cause any controversy.”

“I’m really a model-gym goer. I don’t bother anyone. I don’t talk to anyone. I really just go and lift weights,” he added.

Spencer has been a controversial political figure in recent months, and was also kicked out of the Conservative Political Action Conference in February.
