Inactive Gym Leader? Not at all.
I can vouch for this too; I see him on AIM quite a lot.
Did anyone contact him or give him any kind of warning before doing this, or was it by surprise? Seems kind of unfair to take away his gym when he spends so much time on AIM and has even battled/updated his gym recently.
