Popular YouTuber Nikita Dragun has said she was kicked out of a party hosted by a famous rapper because she’s trans—only to later be propositioned by the star.
In a video posted on Wednesday (November 21), the beauty vlogger told her more than 1.9 million subscribers that a man at the unnamed rapper’s Los Angeles-based Halloween party last year told her soon after she arrived that she needed to “leave right the f**k now.”
The 22-year-old YouTuber said she informed the man that he was being “disrespectful” to her and her friends, one of whom is also trans.
“Who are you to to come and tell me I need to leave this party for no reason?”

She added: “What you’re not going to do is make me feel uncomfortable, make me feel embarrassed in front of all my friends, and I don’t even know who you are!
“Who are you to have the right to come and tell me I need to leave this party for no reason?”
She said that she felt singled out by the party’s attendees from “the second I walked in,” adding that “instantly everyone was looking at me, instantly people were just like, looking me up and down.”
Dragun added: “As a person who is trans, you can just feel it in your gut, you can feel it in the pit of your stomach and you don’t want it to be true and you don’t want it to be like that, but it’s what it is.”
Nikita Dragun reveals an ulterior motive for her ejection
Later in the YouTube video, which has been viewed more than 360,000 times, Dragun claimed that her and her trans friend were actually forced to leave the party because the rapper wanted to invite them to meet him later in a hotel room and have sex with them.
She said that as they were leaving, the rapper pulled up outside in his car, rolled down the window and told one of his employees to get their numbers, after which point they received a call to meet the star in a hotel room.
Dragun, whose channel has more than 100 million views, explained that she and her friend were not willing to participate in this rendezvous after the way in which she said they had been treated.
“What kind of stupid BS is this?” she told her audience. “If you’re not about it, don’t be about it, but if you’re about it, be about it.
“You kicked us out of the party for being trans and now you can’t be all about the trans.”
The trans YouTube star said she felt “like a fetish, like an afterthought, like a behind-the-scenes feeling,” adding that this “is kind of typical for trans people.”
Dragun added: “I felt so embarrassed; I felt so nasty. Why do I have to feel this way, like I’m a nasty little fetish for someone and they can only like at a certain time in a dark room in an undisclosed location?”
