Dirty Kanza Founder fired over ‘inappropriate and insensitive’ comment

Lifetime Fitness have both reported that Dirty Kanza founder Jim Cummins was fired over an ‘inappropriate and insensitive’’ comment on social media. This is the second incident this year the event has come under criticism, the first was a protest about the event name Dirty Kanza being derogatory.

In a statement Saturday night, Dirty Kanza owners Life Time Fitness confirmed it had “parted ways” with Cummins. Cummins had recently posted on a personal social media account describing the shooting of Rayshard Brooks by an Atlanta police officer as “justified.”

“Following a review of the post made by the founder of Dirty Kanza, we found it to be inappropriate and insensitive, and we stand against it as an organization,” stated Life Time. “As an outcome of our investigation, we have parted ways with this individual.”
