According to East Coast Radio, the 22-year-old German law student took to Twitter with a picture of her gym clothes after she was asked to leave because they were too "distracting" and "revealing". In her post she also mentions that she was told tanks were also inappropriate.
Here is her post, captioned "Just got kicked out of my gym, because my clothes were to “revealing” (see photo) and were confusing the men in the gym. What century are we in again? So sad."
Her comments section was shortly flooded with people who disagreed with the gym for sending the young woman home, with some of them calling on her to name and shame the gym in question.
This Twitter user commented, "Sorry, what?! People at my gym and yoga studio train in shorts and sports bras and nobody even notices. Formal complaint time, and name & shame."
Another user commented, "That’s absurd and there is nothing that you are wearing that screams revealing!!! Seriously that gym needs to get a grip! I lift and there are women that wear tank tops and gym clothes ! What’s next no bikinis at the beach!"
Other users responded with hilarious memes depicting how the gym expects women to dress. See some of the tweets below.
And after taking a good look at her apparently "revealing" gym wear, we can see why the public is so enraged by the unfounded accusation. On the bright side, it was refreshing to see both men and women uniting against the wild standards at this gym.Sign up to W24’s newsletters so you don't miss out on any of our hot stories and giveaways.
