Billionaire Owner Of SoulCycle, Miami Dolphins Stephen Ross Checked Over Trump Fundraiser

Jim Harbaugh catches flak for praising Trump supporter Stephen Ross Celebs, activists boycotting Equinox, SoulCycle over owner's fundraiser for Trump

The backlash includes calls for members to cancel their memberships and boycott. They described Ross as a "passive investor" not involved in day-to-day operations, which some have found laughable.

One of the planned events, set to be held at the Southampton home of billionaire real estate developer Stephen Ross and his jewelry designer wife, Kara, attracted controversy after The Washington Post reported on the event earlier this week. Located in the heart of West Hollywood, the gym has a thriving LGBTQ membership base and hosts pro-LGTBQ workouts that raise funds to support those in need.

Brzezinski, on Thursday, suggested that Ross' fundraiser showed that he didn't have a "soul".

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. Ross also owns the Miami Dolphins football team.

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

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, pictured here, spoke to Yahoo Finance in June.

Tickets to that event range from $5,600 per couple to attend the general reception, $11,200 per couple for the VIP reception and $35,000 per couple for a photo opp.

However, now that people know Ross and Trump are pals they believe the gym's image is fake.

Money raised at the two fundraisers in the Hamptons will go toward Trump Victory, a fundraising committee for the Trump 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee.

"I have always been an active participant in the democratic process", Ross said in a statement, according to Bloomberg. "We are committed to all our members and the communities we live in".

On Wednesday, Equinox, its affiliated luxury fitness brands SoulCycle and Pure Yoga, and parent company The Related Companies were added to the #GrabYourWallet list, an online effort to boycott retailers that carry products by the Trump family business or otherwise support Trump.
