Gay Twitter responds to the Equinox Fitness/Trump fundraiser debacle

After news broke yesterday that Stephen Ross, the real estate developer who holds the majority stake in Equinox Fitness Clubs, is a major Trump supporter, a campaign encouraging Equinox members, and those of its subsidiaries like PURE Yoga, Blink Fitness and SoulCylce, to cancel their memberships went viral.

Ross, who has an estimated net worth of more than $7 billion, will be hosting a $250,000 per person fundraiser for Trump’s reelection campaign in Southhampton.

In response, Equinox rushed out a statement saying it has nothing to do with the fundraiser and claims no company profits will be used to pay for it. It also refers to Ross as a “passive investor” who isn’t involved in the day-to-day operations of the gym.

Naturally, Gay Twitter has had a lot to say about the matter…
