It was a few days ago that Peloton's new holiday advertisement for their stationary bike went viral for all the wrong reasons. After watching the advertisement, many took to social media to crucify the company for suggesting such a sexist gift.
For those who haven't seen the advertisement, it featured a husband giving his wife one of the bikes as a Christmas present. She proceeds to document her progress with the bike over the next year using selfie videos. The following Christmas, she gives him a video thanking him for the bike.
As Yahoo Lifestyle reported, Breer took to Twitter a few days ago to respond to the outcry against the company.
"Got my wife a Peleton three years ago. She was not offended." Albert penned in his tweet.
Roughly a day later, Jane responded to the tweet. For the most part, she agreed that exercising equipment wasn't an offensive or sexist gift to receive from your significant other. Her response, however, caught attention and quickly went viral for other reasons.
She penned in response: "An Ex Boyfriend once got me a Fitbit for Christmas. I loved it. We synched up, motivated each other... didn't hate it until he was unaccounted for at 4am and his physical activity levels were spiking on the app wish the story wasn't real."
