Twitter Is Applauding This Student Who Stepped In When She Thought A Woman Was Being Harassed

Girls have to stick together, especially when a guy is being creepy. Twitter user @nictoobomb, Nicoletta shared a hilarious story of ladies sticking together.

She was at the gym with her boyfriend Ricky, except Ricky wasn’t acting like her boyfriend. He was pretending to hit on her at the gym. Ricky was saying things like, “you look nice in those leggings, can I take you out some time?”

A random girl at the gym saw Ricky’s behavior and not knowing he was actually Nicoletta’s boyfriend decided to do something to save Nicoletta. The random girl walked up to Nicoletta and asked her if she was ready to leave.

Ricky was just acting like he wasn’t my bf at the gym, saying to me “you look nice in those leggings, can I take you out some time?”
This girl (that I don’t know) comes up to me and says “hey you ready to leave?”
I informed her he was my bf
BUT GIRL I APPRECIATE YOU

The random girl acted like Nicoletta to try and save her from the “creepy guy,” but the creepy guy was actually her BF. Either way, everyone loved that this random chick would try and help Nicoletta.

There were lots of replies sharing similar stories of help and people asking how they can help when they see a similar situation. But there were also some ignorant people who thought it was unfair that the random girl thought she should save Nicoletta because guys have a right to hit on a girl anywhere anytime.

The stranger who stepped in the middle of Nicoletta and Ricky is Maddison Westcott. She quote tweeted Nicoletta’s viral tweet and explained her actions.

This was me and let me tell you why I thought I was OKAY to intervene (a thread): https://t.co/Y8g9R5Xe3R

1) The gym for most women is a place to work on them selves. I understand so go with their boyfriends (I do) but a lot of women go alone.

That being said, there are a ton of really creepy guys who go to the gym and some of them don’t really know personal boundaries.

For an example, the first time I started going to the gym older men would compliment my figure and say really weird things that would make me uncomfortable.

I always wanted someone who intervine because I KNOW people were hearing this. But no one ever did. Luckily for me comments were the furthest it went.

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

Even thought I don’t know @nictoobomb, I could hear what her boyfriend was saying & he really didn’t sound like her boyfriend. To me it sounded like she was getting hit on and from her reaction, which looking back seems like she was just annoyed with him pretending, was unwanted

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

So I decided to intervine and I asked her if she was ready to leave. She then informed me he was her boyfriend.

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

While I was extremely embarrassed as Terry and Shannon laughed at me, I was honestly happy that he was her boyfriend because I knew she was safe and wasn’t getting harassed and soemthing bad wouldn’t happen to her.

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

All and all I thought it was appropriate because I didn’t want another girl to be uncomfortable. I would rather be mortified with embarrassment than to have her in danger. Embarrassment goes away pretty quickly, having someone assault you doesn’t.

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

And all the guys who are saying it never happened, it did. And to all the guys who ask how not to be a creep at the gym; be polite and don’t comment on their body, and if they look busy don’t interrupt her gainz.

— Maddison Westcott (@Maddison2036) February 8, 2018

Even though Nicoletta and Ricky were just goofing around always follow in Maddison’s footsteps and help someone who looks like they’re in a bad situation.
