“Equinox and SoulCycle customers are boycotting the high-end gyms and studios after learning that owner Stephen Ross plans to host a fundraiser for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Ross, who is the chair of the company that owns both fitness brands, is hosting the lavish fundraiser at his Hamptons mansion on Friday, the Washington Post first reported.

Donors will reportedly shell out between $5,600 and $250,000 to attend the event, with some of the highest-paying donors getting greater access to talk to and take photos with Trump.”

  1. Stephen Ross knew what he was doing, he just didn't expect the backlash. Well I for one do not feel sorry for him, your greed made you ignorant and disrespectful to those gym members who have made you rich over the years, because of your yearning to curry favours at this fundraiser for this racist, lying toe rag they call Donald Trump.

  2. Brooke is pretty for a black. Refreshing to see a black girl not wearing foot wide hoop earrings covered in tats and speaking like ghetto trash. Classy gal!

  3. These companies can't even own up to their racism. Stephen Ross is a bogus owner that is a bigot incognito. The Dolphin's are a plantation owner franchize. That's why they lose every year as a suck ass team.

  4. Members of Equinox and SoulCycle should just cancel their membership. All it takes is a simple phone call. No need for this racist president to benefit financially from hard working Americans.

  5. The violence of free speech?
    That is a rather poorly formed argument. I would suggest that free speech is one of the mechanism that enables rights, including those of minorities and oppressed peoples. But like all rights, when they are unbalanced, they turn into little more than fallacies. This is true of free speech also. It's only a right when it is balanced against other rights.

    But to call it the violence of free speech? that sets a convenient but negative standard that doesn't help in the long term.
