Reality TV star-turned-conservative pundit Erin Elmore said she will wear a MAGA hat to SoulCycle, amid a boycott against the fitness chain after its majority owner hosted a fundraiser for Trump.
“I want to lose my mind,” Elmore told Fox Nation’s “Un-PC” host Britt McHenry Friday about the anti-Trump backlash at the trendy cycling studio. “I’m going and wearing my MAGA hat. I’m just warning everybody now. Talk about getting beat up or doxxed. I’m on my way to that train station because, beep beep, here it comes. I am wearing my MAGA hat, to SoulCycle, on Monday. Who’s coming with me? Who’s coming with me?!’”
SoulCycle and Equinox customers dropped their memberships in droves last week after it was revealed the company’s majority owner, Stephen Ross, would host fundraisers for Trump Friday in the Hamptons.
Celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen and Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen, were among those who encouraged their fans to dump the fitness chain.
“A lot of my very cool, socially aware, progressive, awesome, amazing friends are members of Equinox or SoulCycle,” Teigen said in a video posted to Instagram. “The model mom said. ‘I just want to let you [know] that their owner is hosting a giant Trump fundraiser so f–k them. Cancel your membership today, you can come to my house and work out.
Elmore, a former contestant on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” blasted Teigen, sarcastically calling her “one of the great minds of our generation … eyeroll.”

Elmore reiterated her stance on Twitter Saturday.
“I will be kindly, respectfully, peacefully and happily wearing my #maga hat at @soulcycle on Monday! Thanks to @soulcycle for being a place of love and acceptance for all!” she tweeted, tagging Trump and the cycling club.
Trump cracked jokes about the backlash in a pair of pricey fundraisers Friday.
“Steve Ross got into a little bit of trouble this week,” Trump quipped. “I said, ‘Steve welcome to the world of politics!’”
