The ignorance of some people is just astounding. Ketan Aggarwal, 30, lives in London and is autistic. In May 2015, Ketan attended a spin class at a Virgin Active gym near his home. His spin instructor actually called him stupid several times (over the microphone) and to his face and in front of about 30 other gym members.

Talk about embarrassment.

Ketan was also criticized for asking for a change in music (we all know that some music just doesn’t motivate you to work any harder). Ketan, far from being stupid, took matters into his own hands.

Guess what? He won! Ketan didn’t hire a lawyer – he went toe-to-toe with Virgin Active’s lawyer and won! Ketan claimed that he had been discriminated against. The courts awarded him £1,390 ($1728.28), and he got a written apology from Virgin Active.
