Monica Ruiz, the actress who starred in a Peloton ad that drew mockery on social media, visits TODAY to respond to the controversy, saying she reluctantly decided to appear “when it didn’t blow over.” Ruiz also appeared in an ad for Ryan Reynolds’ gin that made fun of the Peloton ad - and she’s surprised when the actor joins her live on air! NBC News’ parent company Comcast is an investor in Peloton.

It wasn't your face. It was outrage culture at its best. People who haven't figured out what their brain is for decided everything on earth is proof of their delusions, and the other half wants to make a buck off it. You're freakin' awesome. Peleton is awesome. Period.

This actress is so sweet. Also it's ok to think there's something wrong with the ad. It's ok to think there's nothing wrong. Criticisms are valid, defenses are valid it's LIFE and we will never know the "true intentions" of those characters bc well... They are just characters. Discussion is good.

I think this is the first time I've ever seen Reynolds be totally serious about something. Man is a treasure, and props to Ruiz for going along with it!

Let's call it what it is. The only people that got offended by it are the people that really, really should be using it, but don't have the drive to do it. What business is it of anyone else's if the woman is thin and wants to feel better about herself for her own reason?

In December 2019 Peloton stocks was at $30. today September 2020 it's over $88.50. Pelaton got the last laugh.

I think the issue with her commercial is the lack of context. I don't think most people understand that regardless of what your body looks like (in her case, slim, trim and fit) the device was a motivation factor to get her out of a possible mental slump in her life and there's nothing like exercise to help you out with that (granted if you're into exercise in the first place).

I get that a guy just buying his fat wife an exercise bike in an advert may come across as incredibly rude, but the woman was excited for it so that completely destroys the issue

Bringing psychology back into this, you ever realize that maybe women are the majority of the critics of this ad? Especially those who feel they are too overweight and unattractive to even find a husband to buy them a Peloton bike, but will never be able to get that feeling of someone gifting them it like the fit and objectively attractive girl in this commercial, and that's why they're upset when they see how manufactured this commercial is? Nah...maybe thats too complex for you folks to fathom lol...keep being stubborn America, cause another 2016 election.

Open letter to everyone who had a serious problem with that Peloton Ad. If this really bugs you, it's stemming from your personal crap that you're dealing with. Own your BS, don't pollute the world with your negative vibes.

I've been married before where my wife wanted exercise equipment as a gift. I mean maybe they needed to point this out in the ad more but most guys usually talk about their Holiday gifts with their significant other before they buy them.

The ad is anti-black because she's thin, she's married, and she has a kid inside wedlock. The ad was created by and for Donald Trump, in order to make the black community non-competitive.

I think the problem with the Peleton ad was that it wasn't her idea to get the bike, it was her husband's, whereas with the gin it's her decision. It has to do with agency - are you acting to make someone else happy, or are you acting according to your own recognizance? The peleton ad would have not had the backlash it did if it was made clear that she wanted the bike, or at least *a* bike, before she got this one, so it would be her idea not her husband's.

Next time go for a real woman. Someone who, after having kids, hasn't been able to get rid of the baby fat. Doesn't need to be fat, just not already looking fit. It would have been more relatable.

I wish I could exercise. I want to very, very much but I'm disabled. Both my hips need to be replaced and both knees. I don't know how to move without injuring myself. I have rheumatoid arthritis and other disabilities. These disabilities are not do to being overweight. My disabilities run in the family. I miss being able to exercise. I've always loved it but now the simple exercises cause so much darn pain. I can't put into words what having my hip bones rub together because the joint the cushing is no longer there. So now both hips are bone on bone. Sorry to complain I just needed to get off my shoulders. I know there are much more important things happening in our world right now with covid virus and Black and Brown Lives Matter and Homelessness. Peace , Love n Health to all. Please Vote.

I'm a thin person who LOVES exercise and staying healthy. I've had people tell me I shouldn't bother with working out because I'm already thin and tiny. But, I love staying healthy and working out because I love staying active. I can't imagine NOT working out several times a week. If someone bought me exercise equipment as a gift, I would actually be happy and grateful. Because guess what? THAT'S MY THING. If it was expensive equipment on top of it, I'd be jumping up and down like a kid on Christmas. I think the controversy surrounding the ad and people accusing it of being sexist just because the woman is "already thin" is stupid and overly sensitive. Just because a woman is thin, doesn't mean she doesn't want to continue being healthy and active.

I somehow heard that there was some controversy about this ad, but not what the controversy was, at which point I decided to check it out. I honestly thought the whole 'controversy' was just that the ad was kinda silly and over the top. I then watched a couple videos explaining the controversy. Well, I must be some sort of sexist pig, because the idea that the ad was sexist never crossed my mind.

If my husband bought me one I’d do a bike workout and then join him for another “workout.” I’m not fat but I’m a 35 yr old mama who appreciates occasional exercise to stay healthy (and to fulfill my dream of being a milf 🤔). We live in Ohio so having exercise equipment during cold weather is nice. You don’t have to be overweight to need or enjoy exercise. I’m so confused as to why so many sad individuals get butt-hurt over very normal, simple things. If we could all just take a moment to understand that literally every thought or action has multiple perspectives, maybe we could all get along better, and have productive, opinionated discussions that actually help expand our understanding of others.

This whole controversy is ridiculous! I can't even believe it. But I will say that it would have been nice if she would have given us some perspective of what she was thinking when she was filming the commercial. What was she trying to portray? She said her face looks scared, but in the commercial she says I'm nervous, so that would be a matching expression. When I saw the commercial I barely even paid attention to it. When I heard that people were complaining I watched it and it looked to me like she wanted a Peloton, her husband got it for her as a gift, she was nervous and excited to start trying it. But yeah, I don't get the whole end part with the big thank you video. That part did not make sense to me. The Ryan Reynolds commercial is hilarious though. Loved it

The majority of people offended by this are the fat and out of shape ones. Which I would bet the farm that a good majority of them are feminist. Maybe hint of jealousy because the woman that got the gift is HOT!! Oh well then there are the ones who are single and don't have a man to get them a bike. And lets not forget the broke ones who couldn't even afford a bike given to them from good will so jealousy takes a factor in that mode as well. You have to be a complete moron to be insulted by this commercial. I would also bet 99% swing more of the left side politically as well, which explains alot.
