A woman confronts a creepy older man at the gym who refuses to stop staring at her, despite her husband’s attempts to block his view.
After catching his creepy behavior on video while filming her workout, a woman publicly blasted a creepy man for staring at her in the gym.
Heidi Aragon, a trainer in Orange County, California, posted a TikTok video of her confronting a stranger after repeatedly trying to get him to stop watching her work out.
Using the app’s text to voice function, she explained that an old creep kept staring at her at the gym. I told my husband, and he came over and worked out with me.
In the video, you can see the man sitting at a machine, watching Heidi even after her husband stood between them.
“I decided to stop exercising and stare back at her,” she said. He seemed to get the picture.
Then, when she did another set, she realized the stranger was still staring at her. She says she got so fed up with his behavior that she confronted him about it.
I told him to stop staring, or it would make me uncomfortable if he worked out in this corner,’ she said. ‘His response was: “I’m just looking around.”
‘I told him I recorded my workouts, and I have him on video,’ she said. He stopped talking.
Last month, Heidi posted a video of the now-viral video, viewed more than 17.4 million times.
She wrote: ‘Don’t sit there and tell me you’re not doing something when I have proof.
Trainer’s video has gotten more than 30,000 comments, and while many people praised her for calling out the stranger, some men defended him.
Critics who missed the point blamed Heidi’s outfit, arguing that she posted videos of herself working out thousands of people to watch.
‘Just because she’s wearing a certain type of pants doesn’t give him the right to stare repeatedly. It’s not a hard concept,’ one person wrote.
‘She [is] literally wearing normal workout gear for a [woman]. There is no excuse for that man’s actions. It doesn’t matter what she wears,’ someone else insisted.
Another added: ‘What she wears has nothing to do with this. I’m a lesbian woman and don’t stare. It really isn’t hard. Guys are just creeps.’
If guys ever wonder why [girls] only gyms are becoming more popular, read the comments,’ one TikToker pointed out.
