Why did Daniel McKenna out of Peloton?

We regret to inform you that Daniel McKenna will leave Peloton. Starting in October 2021, the “Irish Yank” was officially named as a former coach for the Peloton team. Since about the middle of September, McKenna has been missing from Peloton and other social media platforms.

McKenna was hired to lead both strength and Peloton lessons on the Tread. However, his “Sent It” bootcamps may have been the most well-attended of his courses.

Since new CEO Barry McCarthy was hired, this is the second teacher to quit Peloton this year. However, that does not seem to be the case here, in contrast to the prior teacher, Chase, who was likely let go due to poor class ratings.

Reasons for his dismissal

In a complaint filed on Tuesday, McKenna claimed that Peloton and chief content officer Jennifer Cotter was at fault for his dismissal from the firm in September due to discrimination against his handicap and a hostile work environment. BuzzFeed News reached out to McKenna’s lawyer and Peloton for comment, but neither party provided a statement.

An unscheduled operation was performed on McKenna in October 2021, and he feared the COVID-19 vaccination might slow his recovery, as stated in the lawsuit. (Vaccines against COVID are very effective and safe, with only a slight chance of significant adverse reactions.) In addition, the complaint claims that Cotter made derogatory comments to McKenna regarding his desire for a medical exemption and that McKenna ultimately received the immunization out of fear for his employment.

According to the complaint, Cotter also made fun of McKenna’s Irish heritage by inquiring whether he had been drinking on the job and commenting on his accent, claiming, “Nobody knows what you are saying, Daniel.”

McKenna’s pectoral discomfort was severe and painful in the spring of 2022. May found McKenna feeling better and reported to Cotter and his superiors that he would be ready to return to work on July 1, 2022. However, surgery was scheduled as soon as they discovered the problem, and his recuperation time was estimated at six months.
