She captioned the post: “So this happened,” alongside an upside-down smile emoji.

In the clip, Red can be seen wearing workout gear and fixing her hair in the mirror.

A stranger who is standing behind her then asks her: “Girl, what are you doing? Are you taking videos of yourself?”

“Yeah,” Red replies.

As the stranger then leaves, they remark: “Well, have fun,” while laughing again.

At the time of writing, Red’s clip has accumulated a staggering 9.2 million views and many have blasted the gymgoer’s behaviour.

One viewer penned: “She goes to the gym because she hates herself. You go because you love yourself.

“That’s the only difference that matters.”

Another added: “Sounds like the kinda girl who peaked in high school.”

“My blood is boiling watching this,” a third user commented.

While a fourth said: “Oh my goodness, how awful of her. You are seriously a goddess and her jealousy is showing!”

“People film in the gym all the time, it’s not a big deal – you do you girl and get it!” someone else said.

Later on, Red took to TikTok and shared a follow-up clip. She revealed that originally, she had exposed the woman. However, this led to many TikTokers misidentifying the person.

The influencer said: “Please stop looking for the person! A lot of innocent people are getting death threats and hate messages for nothing!”

She added: “I didn’t know TikTok was this intense, and when people said ‘pull up’ and ‘beat her up’, I thought people were joking.”

Red went on to say that the main reason she decided to upload the original clip was because she wanted to encourage people to show ’empathy and kindness’.
