Many Los Angeles residents got an emergency alert about an unlawful assembly today after a right-wing protest at Wi Spa, which has been targeted for its inclusive policies around transgender patrons. The trouble started after an angry patron posted a viral video claiming there was a transgender person in the clothing-optional area of the spa. Wi Spa employees said the trans patron was allowed to be there, which led to it becoming a right-wing flashpoint in the fight over transgender rights.
After being whipped into a frenzy by right-wing media, the Proud Boys and other right-wing groups planned a protest at the spa, which was met with resistance by Antifa and other left-wing groups. Via CBS News:
Wi Spa declined to comment on the specific incident, but said employees follow state law, which makes discrimination against transgender and other gender non-conforming customers in business establishments illegal.
