Personal Trainer Who 'Fat-Shamed' Woman Has The Finger Of Shame Turned On Him
A personal trainer who fat-shamed a woman for her 'belly' has had the shame turned around on him after she hit back on Facebook.
Kayleigh Boase, 24, posted a photo on Snapchat captioned 'comfys on and chill', showing herself posing in her lounge clothes at home.
Later that day Kayleigh received a message from personal trainer Jowan Townsend-Trahair who sent the picture of Kayleigh, with a reply saying 'that belly'.
After another exchange in which the pair discussed exercise routines, Kayleigh told him that she had neglected her core and cardio recently.
He responded by saying: "You used to be so sexy, shame Kayleigh."
Kayleigh then took a screenshot of the conversation before posting it on social media.
She accompanied it with a caption which read: "Idiots like this are what causes people to have eating disorders.
"Only an insecure bloke would try to belittle a woman. So screw you, I'm happy that's all that matters!'
She later added: "It pissed me off. I just think if it was said to someone more sensitive, they could have been really upset and taken a real offence to it.
"It's so easy these days for someone to make that comment and it sticks with them, constantly thinking it over and doubting themselves."
Kayleigh's post then prompted a flood of supportive comments slamming the trainer.
Ross Millar wrote: "The fact he's a PT (personal trainer) as well is shocking! Part of the job is to make people feel better about themselves! Donut."
Chantelle Lamorna Gribble added: "No one should judge anyone's body, if the person is happy then leave them be. You have a good body. These people make me so mad. He's also meant to be a person trainer?
"How would anyone want to train with him when he's judging people's weight?
"I would never train with someone who does things like that. He's would not be a good trainer if he's telling people they're fat you're meant to help people not put them down."
When Mr Townsend-Trahair responded,telling the Daily Mail via Facebook: "I love the attention. Crack-on brother", with a muscleman emoji.
He added: "For the record I wasn't 'body-shaming' anybody. I have already apologised to Kayleigh. This is funny [as fuck] but for now I'm busy bro' so peace out."
