After being ‘fat shamed’ at the gym for wearing a sports bra, a young woman bursts into tears.
After being kicked out of a gym for wearing a sports bra, a young woman burst into tears.
Shelby, whose TikTok handle is shelby.bellz, posted an emotional video to social media following the incident on Wednesday.
“I just went to the gym, and they informed me that they have a policy prohibiting the wearing of sports bras in the facility. That you cannot be exposing your stomach.”
The receptionist permitted her entry but cautioned her to cover up next time.
During her workout, however, the gym’s program coordinator approached her and asked her to leave.
“I’m mortified,” she says in the clip.
Shelby broke down in tears as she shared her story.
In a subsequent video, she explained why she was unconcerned about the rules.
She stated that two things bothered her, the first being the receptionist’s manner of speaking to her.
Shelby stated that when she inquired about the rules, the receptionist responded, “we can’t just have our bellies hanging out.”
“She stated this in a dismissive tone. That is already unacceptable.”
Shelby continued by describing how upsetting it was to be kicked out of the gym after being told it was fine.
Her video has received over 15,000 views.
Many concurred with Shelby’s assessment that her treatment was unjust. However, a few believed it had been exaggerated.
“It’s time for a new gym, hunny,” one person wrote.
“This is not acceptable,” another wrote.
