Swimmer Riley Gaines says she was “ambushed and physically hit” and forced to barricade for three hours from a mob of trans-rights protesters who stormed her speech about protecting women’s sports.
The 12-time All-American champ — a former competitor of controversial trans swimmer Lia Thomas -— shared alarming footage of cops hustling her to safety late Thursday at San Francisco State University.
“Why are you running!” one of the protesters yells gleefully — before a short-haired activist jumps in front of her to scream abuse.
“Yeah you f—ing transphobic bitch — I f–ing see you!” the deranged-sounding activist screams as Gaines tries to escape down a hallway.
Gaines’ footage — as well as other clips shared on social media — show security and university staff blocking the angry mob from following the distressed guest speaker as she’s taken to a safe room at 8:30 p.m.
“You crying! You f—ing crying bitch — f–k you!” one of the group screams.
“Bye bitch! F–k you,” the protesters yells, as others holding “Trans Lives Matter” signs chant “trans rights are human rights” and “Trans women are women.”
Gaines’ agent, Eli Bremer, said that she was then “barricaded” in a room “for three hours.”
“The police cannot break Riley free,” he said, with student outlet Golden Gate Xpress showing more than a dozen of San Francisco Police Department cops arriving in several squad cars as backup.
