Fitness Influencer Joey Swoll is changing the negative gym culture one social media post at a time. In a recent video on TikTok, Swoll addresses a woman he feels is narcissistic for posting a man’s face and work truck after glancing at her as he drives by.
Joey Swoll is a social media guru who has completely shifted the way gym culture is addressed. He is consistently calling out people who try to gain views by bullying others who are simply trying to work out. Swoll has built an empire designed to protect those who otherwise don’t feel comfortable going to the gym.
His dedication to changing the ‘toxic culture’ has led to his company Gym Positivity which focuses on merchandise that people can wear to show their support and works directly with gyms to implement rules designed to create a safe space while training.
Joey Swoll Addresses The Consequences Of A Woman Falsely Claiming To Be A Victim On Social Media
Joey Swoll has previously opened up about the fact that he never intended to become the ‘gym police’ and he wishes there wasn’t a need for it. He also never expected his videos to gain the views that they did but he is happy that they are able to bring awareness to the damage the toxicity is causing.
In his latest video, Joey Swoll calls out a woman who shares a screenshot of a man who glances at her as he is driving by and says that men intentionally make women feel uncomfortable with no repercussions. Swoll doesn’t agree and addresses how her comments may actually cause irreparable damage to this man’s job and social standing.
“First off, let me preface this video by saying women are absolutely victims of harassment in society by disgusting men and it needs to stop. But you… are not one of them. But what you are is a narcissist. You say this man is staring at you, he’s not staring at you! He glances at you for a literal second.”
“You’re standing in the middle of the sidewalk, you’re stretching your arms in the air, you have an entire film production set up, and he glances at you as he drives by. You’re in his peripheral. It’s called situational awareness. And then you post this screenshot to prove that he’s ‘staring’ at you but what I find funny is you don’t post the screenshot from a literal second later where he’s not looking at you. But you are still looking at him.”
“He doesn’t say anything to you. He doesn’t yell at you. He doesn’t even slow down and then you post this to say he’s a coward, that he’s trying to intimidate you and there’s no consequences from then. I’m here to tell you there are consequences. You posted this man’s face, his work truck, what if he loses his job? What if he can’t support his family? What if he can’t put food on the table? All because you want to feel like a victim on social media to get attention. And you know what the worst part of this is… this video is a slap in the face to women that truly are victims. You need to do better,” Joey Swoll shared.@
This is only one of many times that Joey Swoll has had to condemn someone’s actions for shaming others on social media when it wasn’t necessary. Swoll called out a woman when she addressed a gym-goer as “fuc**ng feral’ after looking at her and trying to help her when she was struggling.
Joey Swoll continues to make it his mission to stop the abuse on social media and within gyms so anyone can work out without fear of being the next viral video.
