Young Woman Goes Viral After Rejecting Man At The Gym
No one enjoys having to deal with a creep, but unfortunately it's a position that a lot of women find themselves in way too often. It's uncommon to have these encounters caught on camera, but when they are it offers a stark reminder of what some people go through on a regular basis.
Avrey Ovard is a 19 year-old influencer who has drawn attention for publicizing her own experience of unwanted attention. While filming for a fitness video to go on her YouTube channel, her camera captured an awkward exchange between herself and an older man who tries to talk to her. After multiple stunted attempts to engage in conversation, he asks her out. After replying that she is "too young" for him, he claims that he is "too rich" and finally leaves.
Posting the video as a reminder that women prefer being left alone at the gym, she received almost unanimous support. People praised her for diffusing the situation and were amused by the man's overly defensive reaction. Overall, the video has received support because it gets across a basic yet important message: don't be weird to strangers when they're trying to exercise.
