Equinox, SoulCycle chair fires back after anti-Trump activists plan boycott


>>BOYCOTT SOUL CYCLE! BOYCOTT SOUL CYCLE!>>Dana: ANTI-TRUMP ACTIVISTS ARE CALLING TO BOYCOTT SOUL CYCLE AND EQUINOX AFTER LEARNING THE OWNER OF THE MIAMI DOLPHINS PLANS TO HOST A FUND-RAISER FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP OUT IN THE HAMPTONS. ROSS IS CHAIRMAN OF THE PARENT COMPANY EQUINOX AND SOUL CYCLE. HE SAID I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AN ACTIVIST IN THE DEMOCRATIC PRODUCT. I HAVE KNOWN DONALD TRUMP FOR 40 YEARS. I HAVE NEVER BEEN BASHFUL ABOUT EXPRESSING MY OPINIONS. I HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT LEADERS OF BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE TO ADDRESS THESE CHALLENGES. LAWRENCE JONES EDITOR AND CHIEF OF CAMPUS REFORM AND FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR. HE’S ALSO AN EQUINOX MEMBER. I THINK YOU LIKE TO GO TO THE GYM. WAS IT LESS CROWDED TODAY?>>YEAH, IT ACTUALLY WAS, YOU KNOW. LOOK, I GO THERE. IT’S A CLEAN GYM. IT’S THE CLEANEST GYM IN TOWN. BUT IT’S VERY LIBERAL. NOT LIKE YOU SEE FOX NEWS ALL OVER.>>Dana: I GO TO EQUINOX, TOO. THERE’S NEVER FOX NEWS ON. MAYBE ONE TIME I SAW IT.>>SOMETIMES IN THE MORNING THEY’LL DO IT. FOR THE MOST PART, VERY LIBERAL. YOU CAN SEE THE POLITICAL STANCES FROM THE MEMBERS IN THE GYM. THAT WAS NEVER A PROBLEM FOR ME BECAUSE I JUST WANTED A CLEAN GYM. AT THIS POINT, WHAT ELSE WILL THEY BOYCOTT? EVERY SINGLE THING THEY DON’T WANT TO DO ANY MORE.>>Dana: IN THE COMMERCIAL BREAK I WAS SAYING IF YOU’RE LEFT OF CENTER, YOU HAD TO CANCEL YOUR NEW YORK TIMES MEMBERSHIP BECAUSE OF A HEADLINE AND YOU CAN’T GO TO EQUINOX OR SOUL CYCLE.>>THEY DON’T LIKE QUICK FIL-A. EVERY PLACE I WANT LESS CROWDED, THEY’RE BOYCOTTING.>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE CAMPAIGN HAD A TWEET. THEY SAID, OR A STATEMENT. HE’S A GREAT AMERICAN EXERCISING HIS FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT IN REGARDS TO STEVEN ROSS. EQUINOX IS LIKE, DON’T BLAME US. NEITHER EQUINOX OR SOUL CYCLE HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE EVENT THIS WEEK AND DO NOT SUPPORT IT AS IS CONSISTENT WITH OUR POLICIES. NO COMPANY’S PROFITS ARE USED TO FUND POLITICIANS. THEY COULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THAT AND NOT SAID THE PART ABOUT DO NOT SUPPORT IT. THEY SAID WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. THEY HAVE TO GET IN THERE.>>RIGHT NOW DURING THIS PR CRISIS, THIS IS WHAT THEY HAD TO DO. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT’S A BAD STANDARD TO SET THAT WE START BOYCOTTING. THE FACT THAT A MEMBER OF CONGRESS DECIDED TO DO THAT IS PROBLEMATIC. THEY’RE DOING THAT ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES. JUST LIKE THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS.>>Dana: LET ME SHOW YOU THIS TWEET FROM KENNY STILLS WITH THE DOLPHINS. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT ROSS’ FOUNDATION. HE SAID YOU CAN’T HAVE A NONPROFIT WITH THIS MISSION STATEMENT THEN OPEN YOUR DOORS TO TRUMP. NONPROFIT BASICALLY SAYS EDUCATE AND EMPOWER THE SPORTS COMMUNITY TO ELIMINATE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, CHAMPION SOCIAL JUSTICE AND IMPROVE RACE RELATIONS. HOW WIDESPREAD IS THAT BELIEF THOUGH? I THINK IT’S PRETTY WELL DYED INTO THE COIFFE.>>PEOPLE ARE MISSING THE POINT. WHEN BUSINESSES GET INVOLVED IN POLITICS, THE PEOPLE THAT ARE BUSINESS OWNER, THEY’RE SUPPORTING IT FROM AN ECONOMIC STANDPOINT. LIKE I SAID, THE ECONOMIC AGENDA OF EQUINOX VERSUS THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE EQUINOX IS MUCH DIFFERENT. SO I THINK –>>Dana: I BELIEVE, WASN’T IT EQUINOX, IT WAS MANY GYMS. WHEN THE TAX REFORM BILL GOT PUSHED THROUGH, A LOT OF THESE PLACES WERE ABLE TO BUY NEW EQUIPMENT THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO DEPRECIATE.>>PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THE GYM MARKET IS A TOUGH MARKET TO BREAK INTO AND STAY INTO. THIS IS THE TRUMP TAX CUT THAT THEY’RE INVESTING MORE. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT CASTRO WENT AGAINST DONATED TO CASTRO AS WELL. IS IT REALLY A POLITICAL THING?>>Dana: I DON’T REMEMBER BOYCOTTING ANYTHING.>>I DON’T CARE ENOUGH. I COME THERE FOR A SERVICE. IF YOU CAN DO THAT SERVICE, THEN I SUPPORT YOU. IF YOU CAN’T, I’LL LEAVE.>>Dana: NOT ONLY THAT, THEY NEED TO THINK ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO WORK BEHIND THE COUNTER. THE PEOPLE KEEPING THE GYM CLEAN, THE EMPLOYEES THERE. THERE’S NO NEED TO PUNISH THEM.>>I LOVE THEM THE SAME. LIKE, I DON’T CARE.>>Dana: WE CARE ABOUT YOU. GUESS WHAT? YOU’RE GOING TO BE ON THE FIVE. HOW’S YOUR ONE MORE THING?>>IT’S GOING TO BE GOOD.>>Dana: IF YOU’RE FILLING IN




Comments
  1. the democrat's continue to perpetuate hate …just after their ideal.s created two mass shooting's…what do you think a deranged mind is thinking when democrat's propose boycotting something …it bolster's their delusion to carry out their deranged murderous plan's.

  2. The 6 person protests appears to be all the support the Left can muster. Keep watching for those cropped videos and press photos, they'll be photo shopping bigger crowds soon at the rallies.

  3. I ask every American voter for Trump and the US to go and buy Equinox and other stuff to show the left that we as Americans will not be bullied into submission. United as one we can.

  4. There is so much hatred on the left. Much of that seems to be from left leaning so-called news organizations stirring the pot. The hate Trump rhetoric far exceeds anything Trump has said or done.

  5. Boycott all stores that sell toy guns. But no, Chinese factory workers might lose jobs and this is all just a game anyway right how would toys promote violence

  6. Gyms are for people who want to let other people know they are working out. Could just work out at home, but no, they must SHOW everyone. In other words, gyms are for douchbags.

  7. Bring up Castro
    This SOB is to blame on these issues.
    This causes businesses to suffer and then the workers suffer when hours get cut.
    They have nothing to do with all the politics.

  8. All of the people who spend all of this time protesting
    pretty much don't have anything else that you could call a life.  By the
    looks of them they don't seem to really offer much character as people
    either.  In fact most of them look homeless.  Maybe somebody's paying
    them to do these protests so they can afford to buy McDonald's.  
    Either way they look like a bunch of losers and should find something productive
    to do with their lives.

  9. No wonder these whackos are so hateful and angry, they dont get to experience anything good in their life. They boycott all the cool sfuff.

  10. Textbook first world white people problems. This is not newsworthy. Aren't people getting shot and stabbed while this whining is going on?

  11. If the anti-Trumpers do a boycott, it means they had no stock in Equinox or SoulCycle. It also means the Trump supporters whom had no stock in either, will buy into their stocks just for being named out by MSM. MSM is a self destructing canon and they always load the canon and then face it at themselves before firing off the load. MSM will make Equinox, and SoulCylce more wealth just by attempting to make them the publics enemy. The left digs daily to come up with a new modem of destruction and it's not worked against anyone but MSM. Daily, they wake up panicked over having little to no control over the public persona, and go to work venting over the lack of control over the public mentality.

  12. I want us all the boycott all of the movies made by the extreme leftist in Hollywood now. It's only fair we do that. Hit them,were it hurts. If they support the socialist take over of our country. Stop the spread of communism now.

  13. How do you boycott something you can’t afford anyways? 🤔😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  14. So the lunatics crawl out from under their rocks to boycott a product they’ve never used! Lol,, what a bunch of Maroons! Evil twisted halfwits. Soul cycle then caves. Maybe the right should boycott everything leftest! Like Universal who will be coming out with the movie “The Hunt” it’s based on leftest elites kidnaping and hunting then killing Conservatives. But we are the ones who are Violent! What a bunch of sick twisted soulless Slugs!

  15. How about if you don’t want to give a company your business, just don’t, and leave other people alone? What happened to MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS? You can stop patronizing any business you want but stop telling other people what to do. You look like a fool doing that.

  16. Trump wing big 2020)2024 🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪

  17. Trump baby is the best president ever 💪💪💪💪❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷

  18. Trump 🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪 wing big gggggggggggggggggggggg

  19. Notice key words if you are on left…"you need to"… comply seems to be crux of left….I don't want to comply…never have, don't plan to start now…

  20. Why aren't people actually canceling they're memberships at these gyms? That's the only way these people will learn.

  21. That's the problem brotha. They say they care about social issues but only really care about their pocket book

  22. Gotta watch for those 1% wackos they just scream louder we stand for real life issues we dont have to act like a bunch of phycos

  23. I feel like Lawrence have made a list he keeps at home in a place only he know of the place he wants 'less crowded'.

  24. Democrats, the party of whiners. They act iike a 3 year old and hold their breath until they turn BLUE unless you agree with them.

    They wantto boycott a business just because they allow someone with a different view to hold a meeting?

    What are they scared off?
    Maybe the GOP will come up with an idea to fix a problem.

    Today's democratic party is all about obstruction of the other side
    They come up with idiocy like the green new deal and free healthcare for illegal immigrants

    No one could be that stupid, it has to be an acr, to go along with the DNC playbook.

  25. “It’s a clean gym”
    Great. Now is going to get even cleaner.
    🤓😂😂😂😂

  26. I wonder if those moronic Castro brothers are gonna get doxed as well………?
    Ohhhh….that's right…..sorry, only the leftist losers try and shame people that don't fall for their BS……RIGHT!!!
    Just forget I said anything………by the way lefties…..that's John Monfette, don't rely on a coward like Castro to out me.
    It is ALL public info remember, just come and dox me….I'll fix us a cocktail and roast some leftist weinies and we'll sing praises to your masters…..then maybe we'll sacrifice a goat to your god Obamilly….. or is it Hillama……..oh, just come and play, we'll have great fun!!!!!!

  27. what's so funny about these boycotts is the people I don't want to be with will no longer be there, thereby making it better for me, plus the only things I boycott are foreign goods – buy American

  28. HEY IF We can STOP the silencing of conservatives this would not happen…the left is bulling the right because there is NO consequence and they are getting away with doxing and inciting violence against any one who support Trump…THIS MUST STOP!! STOP THE CENSORSHIP of the patriots…

  29. These people are idiots, that guy has more money than God. he doesn't give two s*** about what they had to say, and I wouldn't either!! And I'm a Floridian, but not a Miami dolphins fan.. lol.. Detroit lions. 🤟😎🤟

  30. I wonder what these idiots will do when the full brunt of the declass is front page news, hopefully they,ll jump off a bridge.

  31. Rentacrowd demonstrators need to go to a gym! This is Bolshevik stuff = naming and shaming? Oh and also Madam Mao’s Cultural Revolution. We are sick of the Left 🤮

  32. The crazies on the Left are chipping away at everyone and everything. Soon, they will have alienated all support, which makes me very happy.

  33. They'll be protein deprived from no Chick-fil-A and flabby from no Equinox. And wait until all those long-term Yoga injuries manifest from lack of defensive muscle training. Zero chance in a c-war.

  34. Hey. Whatever your political views – this is what America is about. All of the 'negative' comments are great!! The protesters – Great!! This is what it is about folks… say your piece – for or against or other!!! This is what makes America Great – it is Great, no need for the "again".

  35. Those people don’t look like they’ve ever been to a gym in their lives and they have the nerve to boycott equinox and soul cycle? Lolll

  36. To the liberals commenting on a fox news YouTube feed. We already know you have tiny cocks, no sense in proving it to everyone

  37. SOOOO … now Equinox, SOULCYCLE, get to drop monetary gifts for DNC POLITICO entirely,… seems ironic enough.

  38. dana perino has mistaken the meaning of "support". the company statement was pointing out they do not give money to the event – they're not saying they disagree with it

  39. Its truly funny how MAGA hats are made in China and foot stomping made in America deplorables still buy them– the point is Americans spend their money the way they want—we support the political party that we want–thats our freedom—get over it and stop trying to control us–IF WE WANT TO BOYCOTT SOMETHING BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING A POLITICAL STATEMENT-oh well

  40. Unlike a razor blade or chicken sandwich, Equinox sells a unique "ethos" and lifestyle to its members. Its expected that members will judge the company by its own moral standard
