@charlottemkirby

Please be aware/spread the word and stay safe girls. Don’t go in changing rooms alone. This never even crossed my mind when I went into a unisex changing room. Thank you @primark for dealing with this so well. I know worst things could have happened but I still feel very shaken up.

Charlotte Kirby, from Cambridge, urged people to stay safe after two men walked in on her in Primark unisex changing rooms

Speaking through tears in her car she said: ‘I probably shouldn’t be doing this while I’m still emotional but I felt I had to get the word out there. 

‘So I was just in Primark in Cambridge and I feel really stupid being emotional about this, but I was trying on some clothes, and it was a unisex changing room which I’m really for and I love that because it makes everyone feel included.

‘But twice, two men opened the curtain and walked in on me. Luckily both times I was fully-clothed, but I could easily not have been.’

The TikToker explained how it was two ‘different people’ but that they were ‘clearly from the same group’.

She continued: ‘There was probably 100 changing rooms available. So it wasn’t like, ‘Oo is someone in here or not?’

‘The first time was as they walked in they did it and the second time, was like one of them said to the other, “Have you tried it on, can I see?” and he opened it.’ 

‘Both times I was shocked and said “oh sorry” as if it was my fault.’

She added: ‘I have to say though, Primark have been amazing. They were really really good about it. They have walked me back to my car because I was scared.

‘Apparently it’s not the first time it’s happened. Security are watching back the tapes and trying to find who it is.

‘I just want to say to people please be careful, and if you go to the changing room try not go on your own, I will never be doing that again I would rather take it home, try it on and take it back to get refunded, so yea stay safe.’ 

Charlotte captioned the video, which has racked up over 1.5 million views: ‘Please be aware/spread the word and stay safe girls. Don’t go in changing rooms alone. 

People flooded to the comments in outrage with one person saying this is why 'we should have separate changing rooms'

‘This never even crossed my mind when I went into a unisex changing room. Thank you @Primark for dealing with this so well. I know worst things could have happened but I still feel very shaken up.’   

People flooded to the comments in outrage with one person saying: ‘Unisex changing rooms should have proper doors with a lock. I understand why places have unisex but not everyone is innocent unfortunately.’

Another wrote: ‘This is why we should have separate changing rooms.’

While someone else said: ‘So torn about how I feel about this. I want everyone to feel included and everyone to feel safe at the same time.’   

A spokesperson for Primark told Tyla: ‘We are really sorry to hear of this customer’s experience. It shouldn’t have happened and we’re urgently investigating.

‘We are currently reviewing our approach to fitting rooms in our stores to ensure these are always safe and inclusive spaces for everyone.’
