TikTok has become the new launching pad for those looking to attain fame and popularity. From pranks to positivity, there have been all sorts of content that have found a home on the short-video sharing platform. In a recent video posted on TikTok, Kylen Suttner shared her experience of getting shamed by a fellow gym-goer for allegedly wearing an inappropriate outfit in the gym.
Over the last two years, social media fitness influencers migrated from other platforms to TikTok in droves as the app experienced a major surge in popularity. Internet sensation Liver King is one of the most recognizable names along with bodybuilder Bradley Martyn who used the platform to their advantage.
In Sep. 2022, TikToker Zach Charlesworth of Montreal made headlines after he was at the receiving end of a prank. His friends tricked him into believing they were going swimming but he ended up in a bodybuilding competition without any preparation. Although he didn’t boast a stage-ready physique, he received praise for going against the Men’s Physique contenders at the Montreal Summum Classic.
A TikTok woman went viral for her deceptive nude leggings last October. The user uploaded a video performing squats while donning skin-color leggings that misled viewers into thinking she was not wearing any pants. She later explained her affinity for nude colors to clarify the situation.
Fitness sensation Joey Swoll has been a leading force in pushing back against the rise of toxic gym behavior. He took issue with a female TikToker who taunted a gym-goer for grunting too loudly while lifting heavy weights months ago. He criticized her for making fun of others instead of mocking them and encouraged her to create a safe space for everyone considering she was a trainer.
Earlier this year, Swoll bashed a female TikToker for her poor gym etiquette. The woman refused to share the equipment she was using while performing supersets with another fitness enthusiast. Swoll called on her to improve her behavior and not behave in such a hostile manner. Then, Swoll showed another female TikToker named Jessica Fernandez the error in her ways after she hurled insults at a man for glancing in her direction and offering help at the gym. Fernandez admitted her fault and issued an apology message inspired by Swoll’s callout.
TikTok Mom was shamed for wearing a revealing sports bra to the gym
In a recent TikTok video, user Kylen Suttner shared her experience of being shamed by another gym-goer for the sports bra she wore to the gym. The 21-year-old new mom got accused of wearing inappropriate attire that was too revealing according to the other member.
“Guess it’s time to build a home gym,” she wrote.
“Do you really think you can walk around the gym wearing that? Your boobs are hanging out,” called out another gym-goer.
“Are you kidding me?” Suttner replied.
The other said, “No, we’re in a public place, do you not see everyone around you? No one wants to look at your boobs hanging out.”
“I am fine, thank you,” Suttner said.
The other said, “I don’t think you are. Whatever, put on a shirt next time.”

Suttner was not discouraged by the negative interaction. She added that she usually showed way more skin and refused to back down from wearing what she wants to the gym.
