Planet Fitness Stock Price Plummets Over Transgender Controversy

There's quite a stir in a recent debate, and the focal point this time is Planet Fitness. The fitness studio chain is facing criticism after a video of a dissatisfied member went viral...

In Alaska, a woman shared a picture of a transgender woman in the women's locker room at the Fairbanks location. She criticized the company for permitting individuals she referred to as "men" to access a space that she believed should be exclusively for cisgender women.

The initial image depicted a transgender woman shaving at a sink in a locker room. The woman who captured the photo expressed her frustration in a subsequent video, sparking a viral debate on social media.

Following the incident, the local Planet Fitness revoked the woman's membership, while the transgender individual photographed remained unaffected. Planet Fitness reiterated its policy, affirming the right of individuals with specific gender identities to use the locker room of their choice.

That said, Planet Fitness emphasized that members must adhere to their policies, warning that any misconduct could lead to membership termination.

But now, additional photos of the transgender woman originally photographed in the gym locker room have surfaced. This has led to calls from more conservative circles for people to cancel their Planet Fitness memberships across the country.

This development appears to have had a significant impact, as Planet Fitness's stock price has experienced a substantial decline. The market value has plummeted, with stocks dropping from $66 to approximately $56 in just 12 days.

The company's market capitalization has also decreased by approximately $400 million. In just five days, the group has seen a decline from $5.3 billion to around $4.9 billion!
