The popular fitness company, SoulCycle is getting social backlash from a lot of customers after it came out that the company’s main investor has been hosting a fundraiser event for Donald Trump
SoulCycle and Equinox rec centers are both owned by Stephen Ross, who is also the chairman and is a billionaire. Stephen is hosting the fundraiser event for Donald Trump in New York where the tickets are going to be priced above $250,000.
Donald Trump is supposed to come to the event and a photo with the president will set you back $100,000. Big names including the model Chrissy Teigen, and entertainer Billy Eichner, lashed out against this move done by SoulCycle and Equinox.
Both have tried to voice their opinions on Donald Trump’s repressive regimes, particularly his actions on immigration.
Mr. Eichner stated “money talks”
The hashtag “BoycottEquinox” started on Twitter.
In an announcement, Equinox depicted Mr. Ross, who likewise possesses the Miami Dolphins American football crew, as a “passive investor”.
Melanie Whelan, CEO of SoulCycle, which gives indoor cycling exercise classes, said the organization “in no way endorses the political fundraising event”.
