Fitness influencer slams Mudryk over IG video

Watch: Chelsea ace Mudryk slammed by famous fitness influencer Joey Swoll for recording exposed elderly man at the gym

The Ukrainian winger has landed himself in hot water due to a social media post. However, this time, he was called out by one of the most popular men on TikTok.

Mykhaylo Mudryk is in trouble once again due to a social media post.

The Chelsea talent, who has endured a tough time since moving from the Ukrainian top flight to the Premier League, has been blasted by well-known fitness influencer Joey Swoll.

Swoll, whose real name is Sergo, has become popular on platforms such as Twitter and TikTok for calling out horrible behavior in public gyms, ranging from entitlement, false accusations, and harassment. However, Joey left everyone surprised after he called out Mudryk for an apparent video the Ukrainian posted on his Instagram.

In all fairness, Swoll is in the right for criticizing the player's actions. The video is a recording of an old many working out in the gym. However, there is a blurred square over the old man's shorts as he is rowing, which suggest he was exposed. Mudryk looks to have recorded this and posted it on his story with a question mark as the caption.

Swoll did not hold back when addressing this video, using expletives during his reaction. The fitness influencer blasted the youngster over his decision to record the gym goer, stating that the attacker should have discretely informed either the old man or his trainer of the compromised situation he was in. Check out the response in the video below (warning: strong language/expletives are used).

"So you see that man at the gym, working hard, trying to better himself, with a trainer," Swoll said in the video. 

"He's in an embarrassing situation where, 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? 

"Pardon my language, but what the f**k is wrong with you? You're a professional soccer player, you play for Chelsea in the Premier League! Is this really how you want to represent yourself and your team?"

This isn't the first time the 22-year-old has landed himself in trouble due to his social media antics. The former Shakhtar Donetsk ace sparked controversy after a TikTok video of him using racial slurs resurfaced. It should be noted that those slurs were the lyrics of a song he was singing but it led to an FA investigation nonetheless.

On the pitch, things haven't been going well for the $110M signing either, with the player failing to score since moving to Stamford Bridge. The highly-rated winger has picked up two assists in  a Chelsea shirt so far but has found game time hard to come by under both Graham Potter and Frank Lampard.
