VIDEO: Three trans Instagram influencers robbed beaten and chased through LA streets while passerby only laugh and refuse to help
An Instagram trans influencer and her two friends were beaten, robbed and chased through the streets in Los Angeles while one of the attackers was filmed it before posting it to social media.
The victims are Instagram influencer Eden the Doll and her friends Joslyn Flawless and Jaslene White Rose. During the incident no one of the passerby wanted to help them, instead they only laughed at them.
The incident took place on Hollywood Boulevard while the trio was waiting for an Uber. At some point one of the attackers stole Eden’s phone. When the friends were trying to get the phone back, the men began mocking them and throwing items at them.
The situation only got worse when the woman tried to resist. One of the victims, Jaslene, was injured so hard so she felt unconscious.
“This was the most traumatic thing that ever happened to me,” Jaslene posted on Instagram with photos of the attackers. “Not just the fact that I was hit by a grown man, but because there were so many men watching this happen to me and my friends. And we begged for someone to call the police, but they were too busy recording and laughing.”
Eden posted a screenshots of the attack saying,
“HE MOCKED US, sexualized, and instigated THE ENTIRE attack. Him and his friends stole from us. Beat us. Laughed at us. Humiliated us. AND had the nerve to POST IT.”
Another man “held a crowbar to my face and threatened to kill me unless I stripped my shoes off and gave him my jewelry and my processions [sic],” Joslyn posted on Instagram.
The video also shows one woman walking by just stops and only starts taking pictures of the women on the road. She said that didn’t see any blood so there was need for help. Even a police car driving by didn’t stop to intervene while Eden was begging for assistance.
