Peloton Blocks Users From Using #LetsGoBrandon Hashtag

"Let's Go Brandon!" has become a political rallying cry among
conservative-Trump-loving Americans to show their defiance against
President Biden. The phrase has gone viral since Oct. 2's NASCAR race

Peloton also banned the #StopTheSteal and #TrumpWon hashtags. The
company did allow #ImpeachBiden, #WomenForTrump, and others. However,
#BlackLivesMatter has almost 270,000 members, while #AllLivesMatter
has been banned.

Peloton added profile tags during the virus pandemic to "provide a
more robust way for our Members to connect through shared interests or
identity," according to Peloton, adding that tags will make "the in
and out of class experience feel more personal and relevant.

Peloton told the Washington Examiner that it has "a zero-tolerance
policy against divisive, explicit, or other content that violates our

Users of the fitness bike told PJ Media they are tired of liberal
left-wing propaganda being forced down their throats. "We can't have a
'Let's Go Brandon'?" said one user.

"For a company who claims to be so inclusive, they sure do alienate a
big portion of its members," another user said. "Attempting to silence
our voices will not silence us. It will only grow our will to speak
