Coming up next
"On crooked menace it turns out that billionaire stephen ross the chairman of the parent company for so cycle and equinox is kind of trash you when i hear a billionaire sir i immediately want to trust them today and i'll fell apart the name steven makes me feel warm and right after it was reported that ross was hosting a fundraiser for trump in the hamptons at one hundred thousand dollars per plate celebrities influencers and regular people are like overwhelmingly when we called for a boycott of the company's services. The hamptons was supposed to be a safe haven. I know yeah for college. Simon concerts for for bravo summer a house yeah <hes> for emily thorne who nets her revenge is nowhere safe says anyway this turned into quite a fiasco a quagmire five. It has been gay on gay violence for the past week in west hollywood. Everyone is talking about. I was just walking down the street. In west hollywood and there was was a poster out a window of someone saying cancel equinoxes and i have to tell you the vibe of it really let me at the airport on my way here and when i got the the airport there was a very obvious why gay wearing equinoxe shirt and he saw me make eye contact with him and i think he knew exactly what i was thinking and he covered up sign. He said it's washed aac the guilty in hanley and i was like oh i promise is not. It's not what you're yeah. I have friends who go to cry and i recently also affects blink fitness for pores over overhear me. I gotta cancel that too so it's gonna be a fat girl summer for me. Listen which i'm happy about. You're you're. You're a new york. You know <hes> lucille roberts a friend of yours. I don't know what you're talking about. That's the all women's gym that i think's village muslim mom would be about that. Go there. Go to robots go go. I signed up. Actually i don't work out. Let's not lie so after all of this the hashtag boycott equinoxes began trending and i and many celebrities like <hes> friend of keeping billy eichner chrissy teigen and sophia bush were tweeting out their support of the boycott. One thing that people have brought up in the wake of this is that we should have always known that equinox was evil because it's a lifestyle brand. That's for for people who can't afford it valuing money money valuing status and just like all the posters to are just. It's like these perfect looking sort of models and it's sort of this like already a billionaire as you know like if you're going there. There's the idea idea that even if you're not hot you're wealthy so you're already separated from the other people who don't go advertising exclusivity so it's like were you surprised was i surprised i surprise is the wrong word but i would say i think disappointed is still apt because there's something about a gem that caters caters to has a lot of gay people. I didn't know this until i visited a friend in d._c. Recently went to a basically completely gave male. Jim is a specific kind of fun vibe. I don't know it's almost like when you go to a doctor. You realize how much you were missing like you can have conversations you. You weren't gonna have you can learn more people communicate with you better. Whatever so i would say that the person who runs this is so directly obsessed with promoting fighting trump yeah. I do think that's completely fucked up because it's just i'm sorry i'm still i'm definitely like a cyst white gay guy. I still wanna go to a place where i feel a little bit like i'm around the people i want to be around. Who you know get my life etc and it sounds like equinox was a place where people felt like they could do that. Seem dancing sure that's right around around on those. Apparently it's a slightly snotty survived. I'd prefer for me personally but okay yeah well. It's also interesting that this comes right after june right because i am still <hes> an equinox member as of this time and i remember june was rainbows rose and view. That's why especially thing that they're under more fire because they've stuck their leg out to say that we are pro queer are we are pro activists in a way right so now that we get to see that stephen ross is a advocate proponent for his own reasons whatever they may be whether it's a business angle engle or if he actually supports trump now. We're getting the friends friends for years so that's the cutest possible angle. That's why they're on. I think that's why they're under more fire because i expected more out of equinoxes in a way. I didn't buy also in a way i did. I didn't think this would be what would happen with that. Well you expect it. Maybe more out of soul cycle because things sort of traffic in platitudes and <hes> xers etc you know it sort of seems like the thing that is very lovey dovey. We love everyone but these are all corporations and so it's hard to feel surprise yeah. What are the hardest things about equal is that contract is very hard to tobacco. Yeah you try some well. I have not yet because i have a bunch obsessions that i paid for that. I cannot let go two ways before i cancel. Luckily my trainer and i have talked about working together outside of the jam yeah so we could do that after those things are used up but in fact the matter is like once you pay all that money and it would be homophobic of you to cancel 'cause has your putting a gay man out of his trainer is straight. I was talking about you about trainer. The only straight black man. I yeah they're going to be one in your life. Yes what's funny is after this equinox debacle another fight start at raging on social media because armand hammer who loves to step in armand loves and also to jump out of it the the behavior that he exhibited his message the message right he tweeted hey eh while everyone seems to be on this equinoxes thing. I love his tweet starting with hey. We're all friends. Hey guys your friendly neighborhood armand hammer while ever lets us to be on the equinoxes thing. It might be a good time to mention that one of trump's largest financial contributors is the chairman mid of marvel entertainment isaac per meter. Stop just say spelled j. u. S. a. y. F. which fire fire. He's like you want more reading here. We go just saying my least favorite way to end a tweet by the way just putting it out there number one. It's the worst say. This is a fan of armie hammer. My least least favorite is dash kid rock. He signed that tonight. Italian taylor swift where i tweeted the joke him and then was labeled in the press a taylor swift fan who got angry well. You're not not one now pretend to separate yourself but whenever she comes up i they won't swift. I don't need a scarlet t- on my chest. A red red tee shot up to them. Yeah i wanna get into the nature of boycotting in general. I don't well first of all. I'm mad. That army would point tomorrow because i got to see what i got to see movies please. I got to see my favorite movies. I can't that's what it is with boycotting. We get so picky and choosy in like we cherry pick what things we wanna agree with and disagree with. It's easy to cancel your gym membership membership very easy. It's not easy to stop shopping h in them when we decided to boycott agencies. It's not easy to not go to marvel movies in my opinion so like i got spiderman tattoo on my arm already imprinted into me you are marvel marvel is you do not go to the movies but so i just don't understand like where are we all going to start signing up for sale cycle again in a couple of weeks when this all blows over and we forget that's actually the easiest one to quit by the way so so cycling u._k. By class so people can just every class. I've gone to quit halfway in again. Innovate and people have pointed out that armand may be somewhat salty because he did not get a marvel or dc movie rat. He's like i'm hammer. Let me be come on people pointed out that his mother is a maga- maga- yeah she's donates the trump and he had cleaned host. I was wearing a mega like on her voting booth photo in twenty any sixteen different on that on it too. I mean it was funny to see that tweet and be like oh. Here's some teams but also his ma. You can't boycott your mom. You can more white people should put him and his issue with his mom is different from him trying to save thankful. Do you think he's trying to deflect or anything like he's an agreement with this. I i mean i don't know why he would be tweeting anything so soon after releasing a instagram his sons sucking his toes with the hashtag foot fetish on fleet. I also what he did. I mean weeks ago absurd. Celebrity news occurs at such a rapid rate that i can't believe i am saying i forgot that. Hi is wow army keeps girl in. I'm scarred. I'm gonna think about him in the man from uncle to wipe that memory right now okay okay yeah that is just sort of the idea of boycotts right. It's it's it's hard and it is supposed to be disruptive disruptive though you know i know when we want to boycott things that are advertising on fox news. We sort of only do it when like laura ingram says something especially racist but then we sort of forget about that a couple of weeks later those companies are also advertising on fox news and so it's at what point do we draw a line at one point. Are you allowed to be like i do this. You should you also be a person tweeting at other jays cancel equinoxes <hes> don't go to marvel movies when you're at home listening to petra song exactly exactly and you. You can't just decide what you're going to boycott what you're not going to boycott and they get mad at others for that exact reason so that's where i'm at with it i mean i never had a something. I gotta cancel but just the whole boy. Oh i kinda think it's confusing like we really are trying to be rosa parks and with rosa parks energy denote. Is you know and i i don't like the bus so we'll never be the number of people who have the <hes> self possession to go to a gym where you don't take classes all the time. I don't know how to do shit. I need somebody buddy flirtatious and australian scream orders trading about actually i'm not in training day but <hes> flirtatious australians have taken over los angeles so you can't avoid them. They're everywhere see when you pulled that earlier. I got upset.."
