Mykhailo Mudryk gets absolutely cooked by US influencer for shaming gym-goer
| Last updated
Mykhailo Mudryk has been slammed online for shaming a gym-goer, with influencer Joey Swoll brutally taking aim at the Chelsea star.
He's played 16 games in all competitions this season and has yet to register his first goal for the club, garnering criticism by fans and critics alike.
And the 22-year-old has come under more scrutiny following his inappropriate gym post on social media.
He shared a clip of an elderly gym-goer, who appeared to be showing a part of his bottom while using a rowing machine.
Mudryk videoed the moment then posted the clip on Instagram, embarrassing the man to his million of followers.
His decision to post the clip on social media angered people as well as Joey Swoll, who prides himself on gym positivity.
He said: "So you see that man at the gym working hard trying to better himself with a trainer, he’s in an embarrassing situation, yes, he’s 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?
"[…] You’re a professional soccer player and you play for Chelsea in the Premier League, is this how you want to represent yourself and your team?"
People on Twitter also criticised the Ukrainian for poking fun at the elderly gym-goer.
One Twitter user wrote: "Mudryk should be ashamed of him self. A professional athlete with millions of followers posting something like that to social media."
A second tweeted: "Mykhailo Mudryk getting cooked by Joey Swoll wasn’t on my bingo card this morning..."
A third added: "Dammm he went hard but true! This is where his age shows! Immature."
An Arsenal fan said: "So glad we didn’t get him. Gross behaviour."
Another slammed: "To be fair, Chelsea had their pants pulled down too when they spent £70m on him."
