The TikTok user, who goes by @j_rodriguezxo, shared a series of videos to her account about the confrontation on April 18. In the first, she sternly requested that a man delete the picture he appeared to have taken of her.
“Someone just came and told me you took a picture of me,” she said in a polite but serious voice.
“I did?” he responded.
“I just wanna know, did you do it or no?” she asked. “Can you show me … the last current picture on your phone?”
The TikToker then said she was going to ask the manager to review the gym’s security camera footage. The man denied taking a photo and repeatedly moved toward her. She responded by asking for space.
In the second upload, she continued demanding to see the most recent photo on the man’s phone. After stalling for a while, he finally agreed.
As the man scrolled through his phone, @j_rodriguezxo repeated that someone told her he had behaved inappropriately.
“Someone just pointed straight to you, so I’m just trying to get to the bottom of it because that’s really disrespectful if you did,” she said.
The TikToker wrote in the text of her video that she saw a “close up” of her butt on his phone.
“The last picture … I see it right there, so you’re lying,” she said, beginning to get angry. “So delete it right now before I make a f****** scene.”
“Delete it right now before you f****** leave … How dare you take a picture of me while I’m working out,” she said.
“Yes. OK. Relax, relax. OK, it’s all right. I’m sorry,” he responded.
She also urged the man to delete the photo from his “recently deleted album.”
“Go to your recently deleted album right now. I don’t want my body on your phone. This isn’t your body. F****** piece of s***,” she says.
The video series ended there, but @j_rodriguezxo shared an update on April 24 in which she claimed that the man’s membership at the gym had been revoked. It’s not clear at which Planet Fitness location this incident occurred, nor has Planet Fitness released any response thus far.
In her follow-up, @j_rodriguezxo said she simply wanted a sincere apology from the man — and assurance that he would not do something like this again.
Users praised her courageous response.
“I’m so proud of you. That took a lot of courage and men need to start being held accountable,” one user wrote.
“Props to you for calling him out,” another said.
“No one deserves to feel uncomfortable,” a third wrote.
