After allegedly brandishing a taser in a threatening manner during a podcast, controversial Canadian transgender activist Jessica Yaniv had to appear in court.
J. Yaniv just punched me in the back of the head. Just spoke to police. Luckily there are two security cameras directly overhead at the courthouse. I need an advil. pic.twitter.com/3hfm2CfYhq— Keean Bexte 🇨🇦🇭🇰 (@TheRealKeean) January 14, 2020
Upon leaving the courthouse, a reporter wanted to ask Yaniv a couple of questions. Instead, all hell broke loose.
The violent encounter isn't the first time Yaniv courted controversy. Earlier, Yaniv filed human rights complaints against female aestheticians who refused to wax her male genitalia.
Last month, Yani – reminder: a biological male – threatened a gynecologist's office that refused to see her.
