On Wednesday afternoon, #BoycottEquinox and #BoycottSoulCycle began trending on Twitter after news spread that Ross, who is the founder and chairman of the company that owns both brands, was hosting a fundraiser for Trump.

The Washington Post reports that the shindig will go down at his Hamptons home where guests will pay anywhere from $5,600 to $250,000 to attend.

SoulCycle put out a statement in response to the backlash, stating their company "in no way endorses the political fundraising event and does not support it."

Ensuring no profits are being used to fund politics, they encourage fans to keep coming.

"We'll always stay true to our values and committed to our community," it states. "We know who we are and we know what we believe in, and nothing will ever change that."
