Some fans of the In-N-Out Burger fast food chain are steaming mad at a Victoria’s Secret model for exercising — yes, exercising — outside one of the chain’s restaurants in California.
The non-scandal scandal reportedly erupted after model Kelly Gale posted a trolling video to Instagram on Wednesday that depicted her eating a pear at an In-N-Out franchise located in Monterey as what appeared to be friends or coworkers got in line for some grub.
“We’re at… In-N-Out? …so I guess I’m having my pear!” she admits at the start of the video.
It’s what she did afterward that has some In-N-Out fans hotter than a jalapeno.
The model set up a little workout spot right outside the restaurant and then proceeded to record herself performing some exercises, including jump ropes.
But before uploading the completed video to Instagram, she added some captions: “Who else works out at in n out? I mean … Hustle for the muscle right? Do what you gotta do right! No excuses guys! Not gonna pretend that I eat here guys cause I don’t.”
The video concluded with one of her male friends delivering a bag full of vegetables to her.
The video has reportedly since been deleted because of backlash from In-N-Out Burger fans who feel as if the model had purposefully and maliciously been mocking them.
Who the hell does @KellyGale_ think she is? How dare you #fatshame others? #kellygale @innoutburger is the best and you can eat whatever you want Ms. Gale but please don’t be so pathetic and unkind to others. #Entitlement is not cute #InNOut

This B came to my hood Seaside and tryed to fat sham people at the local @inandoutburger. Just because you want to be anorexic, don’t try to force your lifestyle upon others. Lucky u i wasn’t there, would of throw animal fries at you stick figure.

@KellyGale_ As a girl that has struggled with both Anorexia and Bulimia I find it highly offensive that you think it’s acceptable to fat shame people outside @innoutburger . No food should be labeled as a bad food if its eaten once in a while. #KellyGale

Except Gale made no attempts to force her lifestyle on anybody else. Instead, she posted a trollish video to her own Instagram account announcing that isn’t into In-N-Out.
And while it’s true her video depicted her exercising outside the restaurant, her Instagram contains dozens of other videos that show her working out.
Below are just a few examples:

Many have fired back at her critics.
“Your tweet is the epitome of entitlement,” one defender wrote in response to accusations that Gale had been shaming In-N-Out customers. “Anyone offended by someone eating vegetables and working out has a self-esteem issue not being fat shamed. If she walked up videoing an obese monster shoving a cheeseburger in her mouth I’d say you had a case.”
Your tweet is the epitomy of entitlement. Anyone offended by someone eating vegetables and working out has a self-esteem issue not being fat shamed. If she walked up videoing an obese monster shoving a cheeseburger in her mouth I’d say you had a case.

Another defender accused Gale’s critics of “fitness shaming” her.
Look at this reply and others below:
You’re being unkind by complaining.
She’s right, if you don’t want to be or get fat, you don’t eat hamburgers more then once a year. now it’s ok to fitness shame someone trying to help those who want to be fit and attractive to others that care what they dump in their bodies?

She criticized fast food, and said nothing about fat people. Stop calling all criticism shaming. There are millions of people out there who are bullied, threatened and beaten up, simply for being different. Was anyone bullied or threatened? You don’t know what shamin is.

It is unhealthy food shaming, not fat shaming. Plenty of non-fat people eat there. I’m highly offended you r implying I’m fat 4 eating there

Is it okay to be fat now? Sounds like she wants to be healthy and spread the word.

There used to be a time not that long ago when something like this wouldn’t have even made the news. But thanks to a growing culture of nonstop political correctness, those days are long past.
