A Wisconsin gym is facing backlash after advertising a workout called “I Can’t Breathe” with a picture of a man kneeling.

Anytime Fitness issued an apology Wednesday: “No matter the intent, we absolutely do not condone the words, illustrations or actions this represents.” Jen Dunnington, co-owner of the Anytime Fitness location in question, also issued an apology on Facebook.
