A few far-right protesters appeared to be outed by those favoring transgender rights.
Officers spread out at the scene, and an LAPD helicopter whirled overhead as demonstrators shouted at each other and, in a few cases, exchanged blows, according to social media video from the scene. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange said one person who was assaulted sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a medical facility in a private ambulance.
The protest was prompted by an incident captured on video and shared on social media of a woman complaining to Wi Spa USA workers about a trans customer who disrobed, thus displaying her penis in an area where women are nude. The incident occurred about a week ago. The workers stood by the trans woman and said legally they cannot discriminate against her. Some of the protesters, according to images and videos from the scene, included apparent QAnon supporters with T-shirts that mention the term "Pedowood," a a baseless theory about a secret cabal of Satanist child abusers in government, entertainment and the media.
Video showed demonstrators clashing with each other and with police. Protesters' chants included, "Save our children," another expression affiliated with QAnon.
Police form a line between counter protesters and protesters, leading to some tense exchanges and minor physical confrontations between police and leftist counter protesters pic. The story of the spa controversy was first reported by Los Angeles magazine.
A lawyer representing the spa, Peter F. Jazayeri, said in a statement Saturday that the business is abiding by California law that prohibits discrimination based on "gender expression.
