Angry Equinox Customers Cancel Pricey Memberships Over Owner's Trump Fundraiser
Stephen Ross, the owner of Equinox, is hosting a fundraiser to support the president, igniting fierce backlash.
A fundraiser for the president scheduled for this weekend at a private estate in the Hamptons is being hosted by the owner of Equinox, prompting some to cancel their memberships.
Wealthy supporters of the president will pay up to $250,000 apiece for some face time with him.
The host, billionaire Stephen Ross, owns Equinox, the chain of upscale health clubs that has carefully cultivated a progressive image. He also is an investor in SoulCycle.
Now, a boycott is being organized on social media and Inside Edition found some New Yorkers rushing to cancel their $3,000-a-year memberships
“I just resigned my 15-year membership,” one former member told Inside Edition.
“I just canceled my membership, my husband canceled his membership and we sent out a lot of messages to friends on social media and they are canceling their memberships too,” said another.
Ross said in statement: “I have known Donald Trump for 40 years and while we agree on some issues, we strongly disagree on many others and I have never been bashful about expressing my opinions."
