    People are stupid and insane.
    Riding a bike is good too.
    Being offended?
    That’s a choice.
    You’re not offended,
    You want attention.

    People exercise for reasons other than losing weight - stress relief, better sleep, heart health, mental health......People are also assuming this woman didn't already exercise. A stationary bike can be for convenience, and not having to bike outside, or at the gym.

    She is lovely, that's all I care.

    Maybe that’s what she wanted for Christmas???? Some ppl are very much into keeping fit. Some people actually like exercising.

    Let’s shame a fit woman for wanting to stay fit and then wonder why people of all shapes and sizes are terrified to do anything anymore. It’s sickening.

    How could you not jump on all the interviews that you could of had.
    She doesn't want to be used by the media like that probably.

    Men are biologically attracted to thinner women if you say the word feminism you need to have a conversation with God or the universe not with men men were born and created this way

    It'd be interesting to see the actual real % of people who ABSOLUTELY HATE outrage culture and are also part of it

    Maybe she asked for the bike? Just a thought...
    My girlfriend asked for a fryer for her birthday. Imagine how that ad would of turned out

    I really dont understand the outrage. My mother, who is barely 130pounds asked my father for a bike for Christmas. Do fat people think skinny people dont exercise or something?

    The stock went down which certainly does not mean the company lost money. Idiotic journalism.

    I really think some people like to be fit. So there is nothing wrong with the ad. Some people have no problem being fat or even obese and have no desire to be fit. But when people whine because they think it is a personal attack on them... well those people need help.

    Imagine the outrage if Peloton used a fat actress. 😆 There is no winning with this recreational outrage crowd, unless you’re bashing white men.

    Outraged fat blobs looking jelly at a pretty,smart,classy working mom and wondering why they can't come close to anything portrayed in this commercial. Watch the VIEW-ask Whoopie her diet tricks-how healthy is 270 pounds-eat your french fries and watch daytime tv on the couch .Nothing wrong with this add. But you may have underlining issues if it bothers you.

    Peloton blocked comments on their TheXvid page. Totally lame

    Aside from the parody in the gin commercial that made it seem like she didn’t like the gift... that pelaton commercial is NOT a big deal at all....what if *gasp* she actually wanted a pelaton for Christmas...?

    there is no backlash against jewelry commercials. those can be interpreted as your wife doesn't look beautiful unless she has expensive diamond, or saying shes a snob and not happy unless she has expensive diamonds

    Kind, but no it's not your face. It's the socio-political free speech crusade brought to you by the emotive, far-leftist culture.
    Your face is beautiful.
    Also, Ryan. Good guy. Funny, keep it up.

    A few people on social media are outraged. So what. The vast majority just don’t care. Trying to find things to offend you is a waste of time. Get a life.

  • Unstoppable Power Of YOU

    Peloton missed the mark. They didn’t tell a relatable story....

    What's wrong with the advertisement?
    Just because some fat women don't want to get healthy isn't a reason to trash the product.

    We know that our gynocentric society is going off of the deep end when we can't even air an innocent stationary bike commercial without all kinds of ignorant backlash.

  • AH! Why is there poop in your mouth

    She fine. 😎➡➡😍😍😍

    No, it was a bunch of angry and fat feminists body shaming this woman simply because she chooses to live a healthy lifestyle.

    Only “FAT” people who think “body positivity” involves loving your next heart attack and forcing people to think it’s okay are mad about the Peloton ad....

    Clearly people who have issues are triggered by the commercial. I still don't see the problem.
