Owner of SoulCycle, Miami Dolphins endures backlash over Trump fundraiser

Owner of SoulCycle, Miami Dolphins endures backlash over Trump fundraiser

The reports have prompted outcry from patrons threatening to cancel their memberships, so Equinox and SoulCycle released similar statements insisting that they don't support the fundraiser, and describe Ross as a "passive investor".

"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", he said. "Maybe a bunch of "Deplorables" will descend on SoulCycle", he added, referencing a term former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used to describe Trump supporters.

In the interview, Ross defended the status quo and criticized the solutions put forward by liberal politicians. He also owns the Miami Dolphins.

In Southern California, Ross' Related Companies owns and manages billions of dollars worth of real estate, including the now under construction Frank Gehry designed The Grand, a highly anticipated landmark development that will complement the adjacent Disney Concert Hall and connect with the nearby arts and cultural institutions through Gehry's distinct design.

"I think it's disappointing, mainly because Equinox and Soul Cycle pander so heavily to the LBGT community", Equinox customer Alex Kahn said.

Real estate mogul Stephen Ross is in hot water.

Several senior members of the administration, party and campaign are scheduled to appear, as are some Trump family members, according to invitations obtained by The Post. He's known as the man behind New York City's Time Warner Center and the most expensive real estate development in United States history Hudson Yards as well as the owner of National Football League team Miami Dolphins .

People who buy the pricier tickets to Ross' fundraiser will get a lunch, photo opp, and a private round-table conversation with the president.

"At Town Sports International gyms, we strive to maintain and foster all-embracing spaces of inclusion and acceptance", CEO Patrick Walsh said in a statement.

We know Ross is not out there handing out clean towels to members, but he is company chairman and profits from Equinox and SoulCycle.

After the news broke, calls for a boycott of the luxury gyms rang out, prompting a statement from the gyms about Ross' involvement.
