Joey Swoll is back to make an example out of another rude gym-goer. In a recent Instagram post, Swoll fired shots at Chelsea soccer player Mykhailo Mudryk for mocking a man whose pants fell down during a workout at the gym.
“The fact that you don’t know better or want to set a better example as a professional athlete, really? You need to do better, mind your own business,” said Joey Swoll.
Fitness influencer Joey Swoll routinely stands up for gym-goers who refuse to speak up for themselves, whether in person or on social media. As of late, Swoll took issue with the budding soccer star after the man disparaged an older gym-goer completing reps on the rowing machine under the guidance of a trainer.
Mudryk, a 22-year-old winger, has yet to prove himself for Chelsea. Thus far, he hasn’t scored any goals but has notched two assists in a total of 14 games. And while the soccer player often shares his training sessions on social media, he decided to instead make fun of a man simply trying to better himself.
In the Instagram post, the gym-goer’s buttcrack is blurred by a huge stop sign emoji with a question mark overlayed in the video. Suffice it to say, Swoll didn’t take kindly to the Mudryk’s antics.
Joey Swoll Blasts Soccer Player for Poor Gym Etiquette: “Either Help Him or Mind Your Business”
Joey Swoll was shocked by Mudryk’s behavior and condemned his actions considering the 22-year-old represents a soccer team.
“So you see that man at the gym working hard trying to better himself with a trainer, he’s in an embarrassing situation where yes, he is a little exposed and you decide, hey let me take a video of it to post on social media to make fun of him all for attention, really?” Joey Swoll asks.
“Pardon my language, but what the fuc* is wrong with you?
And you’re a professional soccer player, you play for Chelsea in the Premier League, is this how you want to represent yourself and your team?” Swoll shared. “Either help him or mind your own business but put your damn phone away.”
This is far from the first time in which Joey Swoll went after someone for recording inappropriately at the gym. Swoll called out a female TikToker a few months ago who had been laughing at gym-goers for grunting loudly during training sessions.
In a separate incident, Swoll fired shots at influencer Nikki Fitness for mocking a man performing drag curls at his local gym. Soon after her post went viral for all of the wrong reasons, Joey Swoll chimed in and explained the utility of drag curls, which are especially useful for those suffering from injuries. Nikki Fitness later apologized for her actions.
Joey Swoll continues the fight against what he refers to as “toxic gym culture.” Despite some bad apples, Swoll hopes to make gyms and fitness centers more welcome for everyone.
