SoulCycle Influencer Stacey Griffith Posted a Vaccine IG and All Hell Broke Loose

As hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers wait to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, one surprising resident secured the coveted jab: a celebrity fitness coach and SoulCycle instructor.

“VACCINE DAY! Step one of the Moderna magic!! One hour drive to STATEN ISLAND worth every minute! It takes a village,” Stacey Griffith, a 52-year-old fitness guru who has been featured in The New York Times, proudly announced in a since-deleted Instagram post on Friday.

But moments after Griffith revealed to her 64,200 followers she was among the roughly 850,000 New York City residents who had received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, she was met with furious backlash.

“My wife is a stage 4 cancer patient who has to deal with the fear and risk of going into a hospital cancer center weekly, while immunosuppressed, during COVID, in order to receive the treatment that is keeping her alive. She is at least 2-3 months out from being eligible for a vaccine,” Gabrielle Novacek, a Chicago-based consultant commented.

“As the caretaker she depends on to provide her with support, I’m at least 4-5 months out. But yes, let’s celebrate that we are making the world safe for in-person spin class in the midst of a global pandemic. What’s left of any respect that I had for Soul and the leaders it celebrates is done and gone,” she added.

Griffith, who nets $800 a class, according to a recent Vox story, claimed via text message that her role as an “educator” made her eligible for the coveted COVID-19 vaccination.
