A viral TikTok in which a woman seemingly jokingly accuses her boyfriend of “cheating” based on where he was working out at the gym has sparked debate online.

@char.ityk shared a short video to TikTok earlier this week with the text overlay “caught him cheating.” In it, she shows a nearly empty gym before panning the camera to where her boyfriend stands on a treadmill watching her. Another woman runs on a treadmill in the row of equipment directly in front of him.

“Guys, out of all these treadmills, my boy is going behind the ass,” she says.

The video was viewed over 2 million times. The TikToker’s reaction left some viewers confused and uncertain as to whether the video was a joke, or if she really thought that amounted to something worth being upset with him over.

“What if he was there first,” @divine.wolf asked.

“From personal experience, I have one machine and I stick to that particular machine lol I know how it works, it doesn’t wobble, etc,” @madikthomas added.

But an overwhelming number agreed that this was a problem.

“Nah sis he gotta go,” reads a comment from @cat_mf_wild that racked up over 86,000 likes.

“I would break up w him,” @xosanriogirl wrote.

Ultimately, @char.ityk posted an update admitting she may have overreacted, and eventually realized that every time they go to the gym together, her boyfriend hops on the treadmill behind the first TV because it plays sports.

“I think I just saw that he was running behind a female, and I took it as a perfect opportunity to act crazy. But there was no need to because he wasn’t there for her,” she says.

The Daily Dot has reached out to @char.ityk via TikTok comment.
