Influencer faces backlash after wearing only body paint to the gym

Influencer faces backlash after wearing only body paint to the gym

The streaming star conducted a failed social experiment

Online users have been left severely cringing this week after a controversial influencer received a brutal telling off following a failed social experiment.

Natalie Reynolds ceaselessly hits the headlines for her questionable behaviour on social media.

And this week, the streamer and online influencer opted to conduct an eyebrow-raising 'social experiment', which saw her attend a gym session wearing only body paint, as opposed to athletic attire.

The 26-year-old star posted the livestream online on Wednesday 27 December, which saw an artist pal paint a pair of ripped blue jeans onto her bare legs.

Natalie - who was seemingly wearing nude underwear and nipple covers - was also painted in a purple and grey sports bra.

Opening up about her startling new look, the controversial content creator told viewers: "So, I started getting this painted on me at 11:30am and I got done at 4:15pm.

Natalie has defended herself from the backlash.

"So, I'm sitting up for, like, five to six hours. It's painted on pants - so this is all paint. This is swimsuit bottoms."

It was then that the American star ventured to her nearest gym, where after a while, she was politely confronted by a fellow exerciser.

The man in question could be heard telling her on the now-viral Twitter video: "If you don't have clothes on, you need to be out of here, ma'am."

Natalie then responds by telling him: "I do have clothes on."

"Not fine, I work in the industry enough to know," the gym-goer then tells her. "I work in the entertainment field."

The streamer faced backlash when she attempted to shame a man that called her out for wearing body paint to the gym.

He can then be seen to be reminder her that you're not supposed to 'videotape' in the gym, before walking off.

And it seems as though Natalie believed her latest social experiment might gain her some sympathy from the almost 30 million viewers.

Where she likely expected to receive an outpouring of support from her followers, however - by captioning the video, "Guy in the gym presses me for wearing painted pants" - the reaction from viewers was quite the opposite.

"That dude was 100 percent right," one Twitter user wrote. "He called out your degenerate behaviour and you played the victim."

"Painted pants aren't real pants," another added.

Natalie Reynolds has become known for her controversial online behavior.

A third went on: "I'm sick of these influencers walking around with security guards thinking they can just do whatever they want."

Even more savage was the fact that the streamer was even called out by X's community notes, which allows users to add context to content shared on the social media platform.

"The man in the video is protecting the overall gym etiquette according to which you should wear clothes suitable for exercise," the note read.

"Wearing unsuitable clothes or none at all is considered to be disrespectful towards the other. It is also a hygiene risk to others."

Seemingly to embarrass the star even more, the note was accompanied by a link to a Healthline article on proper gym etiquette.
