Arsenal fans have taken to social media to continue hammering Chelsea star Mykhailo Mudryk after the Ukraine winger was called out by social media personality Joey Swoll. The Gym Positivity CEO and active Twitter user called out Mudryk for his decision to video a man working out.
In a clip posted on Instagram, Mudryk has recorded a man on the rowing machine with a personal trainer next him, drawing attention to the man’s shorts and pants having fallen down in the process. It was uploaded to his story with a question mark attached but has gone down terribly with people that have watched it.
In a response to the video Swoll addressed the breach of gym etiquette, laying into the 22-year-old. He captioned it with: “Either help him or mind your own business but put your damn phone away!”

Swoll said: “So you see that man at the gym working hard trying to better himself with a trainer, he’s in an embarrassing situation, 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*** is wrong with you? You’re a professional soccer player and you play for Chelsea in the Premier League, is this how you want to represent yourself and your team?”
He continued: “You should at least mind your own business or tell his trainer and let his trainer help him out. What you don’t do is take a video to post online for millions to see. And the fact you don’t know better or want to set a better example as a professional athlete, really? You need to do better. Mind your own business.”
Chelsea fans have also blasted their new signing, criticising him for body shaming and being disrespectful. “He needs to grow up fr with the platform he has,” one wrote. “Joey is completely right,” added another.
Arsenal fans were less forgiving. Mudryk had flirted with a move to the Emirates Stadium all winter, using his social media to praise Mikel Arteta and give major hints that he would be heading to north London. Chelsea moved in with a late January bid, however, and Gunners supporters haven’t forgotten it.
“Chelsea spent almost 100 mill on Mudryk, just for his most memorable moment this season to be getting cooked by Joey Swoll This actually has to be one of the most random crossovers ever!” laughed one user. “To be fair, Chelsea had their pants pulled down too when they spent £70m on him,” said another.
Mudryk has had a tough start to life in England with no goals yet for the Blues since his big-money move. Meanwhile, Arsenal’s alternative, the cheaper option of Leandro Trossard, settled in quickly and helped Arteta to a title charge and second-placed finish.
