'Chief Knowledge Officer' Of Crossfit Fired Over Homophobic Twitter Post And Their CEO Didn't Hold Back

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Russell Berger used to hold a high position in the CrossFit corporation until he sent out a homophobic tweet and got himself fired. Considering his position was Chief Knowledge Officer, one has to wonder if he was ever qualified for the job. 

In the tweet Berger supported a CrossFit gym cancelling a LGBT pride event by saying:

As someone who personally believes celebrating 'pride' is a sin, I'd like to personally encourage #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an @indypride workout. The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views is mind-blowing.
