Chrissy Teigen is causing a stir on social media after she called for a boycott of Equinox, SoulCycle and several other fitness companies due to an owner's apparent connection to Donald Trump.
She and Billy Eichner of "Billy and the Street" and "The Lion King" have been tweeting in support of the boycott after it came out that Stephen Ross, an owner of Equinox and SoulCycle's parent company, is holding a fundraiser for Donald Trump in the Hamptons this weekend.
Ross is the chairman and a majority shareholder of Related Companies, according to LA Times. Related Companies owns Equinox and SoulCycle.
Ross released a statement related to Trump after Kenny Stills, a player on the Ross-owned Miami Dolphins, took issue with his politics as well.
“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 wrote, sounding suspiciously like every other racist, money-motivated baby boomer I know. "I have been, and will continue to be, an outspoken champion of racial equality, inclusion, diversity, public education and environmental sustainability, and I have and will continue to support leaders on both sides of the aisle to address these challenges.”
