A woman claims a person 'with a beard and penis' got into a hot tub naked with her six-year-old daughter at a Los Angeles spa were violent protests erupted this weekend after a transgender woman exposed herself to children.
The woman, who is not identified, said in a YouTube video that the incident happened a year ago, in January 2020, at Wi Spa on Wilshire Boulevard.
She claims she and her six-year-old daugther had gone on the outing to the spa together when a transgender woman sat on the edge of the hot tub where they were soaking.
'We got into the hot tub, my little six-year-old daughter and I, and we were having a great time, we were in there with other women, when a person, I guess, with a penis and a beard came over with two girlfriends,' she recounted.

A woman recounted having an uncomfortable encounter, along with her 6-year-old daughter, with a naked transgender woman at an LA spa more than a year ago. It was the same spa that sparked violent clashes Saturday after a video of a complaint regarding the woman went viral

'We were just uncomfortable, I was trying to block my daughter from seeing the penis on the person with the five-o-clock shadow who was not trying to look like a woman at all,' she recalled.
When she spoke to staff about asking the woman to cover up she said they told her she had refused, and there was little else they could do.
'I'm a registered democrat, I've been to gay pride, I have no problem with gay people I have no problem with trans people,' she said. 'This is different. This is different. My daughter is six years old, and she was nude, and this person wasn't making any attempt to look like a woman whatsoever.'
In particular, she said she wanted to speak out regarding her experience, saying the narrative surrounding Saturday's clashes had gotten it wrong.

'A lot of what I saw was it being portrayed as a bunch of transphobes having problem with trans people in the locker rooms, and Antifa making themselves out to be the heroes who got rid of the transphobes, but that's not really what's going on, because this happened to me.'
The violence had broken out on Saturday outside Wi Spa after viral video showed a customer complaining about a transgender woman who allegedly exposed their penis in front of minors in a women-only steam room.
Hordes of people showed up outside of Wi Spa to support the woman who had complained about the alleged exposure incident, when they were met by Antifa counter-protesters supporting transgender rights.
The protests came after a video was posted to Instagram by an account named Cubana Angel (left) which shows the furious woman complaining to a spa staff member (right) about the alleged exposure
