Joey Swoll calls out TikToker for mocking elderly man

In the gym-goer’s video, she recorded herself doing a workout at a gym. Behind her, the old man was seen kicking a punching bag.

After spotting him, the TikToker then zoomed in on the man, before zooming in on herself looking less than impressed. “What was that,” she captioned the now-deleted video.

In his TikTok, Joey played some of the controversial video at the start, before speaking out against the content creator.

“So now we’re making of the way an elderly man works out? Really? You should be ashamed of yourself,” he began in the 46-second clip. “And we wonder why people want filming banned in all gyms.”

“To this woman, you owe that man an apology, and I really hope you’re accountable enough to do so,

“Otherwise, your gym should kick your ass out. You need to do better. Mind your own business,” he concluded in the video, which went viral with 1.7 million views.

In the comments, TikTok users agreed with Joey, and defended the old man.

“Mobility is so difficult for elderly people. Good for that man!” one user wrote. “That man was doing great! At this age to be punching and kicking? Legend,” another said.

“Dude’s keeping his mobility up. She’ll be lucky to even remember where the gym is when she’s his age,” a third shared.
