Peloton Actress Reacts To Viral Infamy: 'I Think It Was Just My Face' | TODAY




  • I’m a personal trainer and I use one of these and so does my fiancé. But well done Ryan Reynolds for seeing the joking side and fun side of it! We are fans of Aviation Gin

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
