Trans YouTuber Lilah Gibney Says She Was Told She, Friend Weren't 'Real Girls' at Jake Paul's Team 10 House
Lilah Gibney said that she and her friend, Kendall Raindrop, went to a bash at Jake Paul's Team 10 home, but upon their arrival, they said they were made to leave by a Team 10 employee who said he was “told real girls were coming.”
A transgender YouTuber claims that she was kicked out of a party on Saturday together with another trans friend after being told that attendees were awaiting "real girls."
In a video posted on YouTube, Lilah Gibney said that she and her friend, Kendall Raindrop, went to a bash at Jake Paul's Team 10 home, but upon their arrival, they said they were made to leave by a Team 10 employee who said he was “told real girls were coming.”
Video of the moment, posted on Gibney's YouTube account, captures the man saying, "I’m not trying to be disrespectful, I’m just being real."
Gibney told BuzzFeed News they were invited to the party by other Team 10 employees. “He was asking us to leave and we were like, ‘What do you mean? We just got here,’” she said.
“When I woke up the next morning, I was expecting it to all be fake," she added.
Speaking to Page Six, Gibney said that she had not really encountered transphobia before at the house. “I seriously was so shocked and disgusted and hurt and taken back," she said.
But the story doesn't end there, according to Gibney. She said she was contacted by another Team 10 employee who allegedly threatened legal action over the YouTube video she posted regarding the incident.
“He pulled the whole, ‘We could have handled this like adults and actually worked together to help raise awareness for the community, but now it’s taken a different spin since you opted to turn it into a defamatory opportunity for views,'” she told Page Six.
In a statement on their Instagram Story Tuesday, Team 10 said: “Jake Paul and Team 10 have continuously embraced the LGBTQ community with open arms and a commitment to use the brand’s substantial social media platforms to raise awareness and support for everyone within the LGBTQ community and beyond."
"There is simply no room whatsoever for ignorance on matters of sexuality and gender identity, which is why we take the matter at hand very seriously.”
In addition, they pledged to investigate the incident, to which Gibney responded in part on Twitter: “wait what is there to investigate??? video proof usually is enough babe!"
