On Saturday night, I was the first to break the news that a trans person alleged a black female TSA agent at JFK International Airport punched her in the balls. Twitter user "@massofclay" posted the accusations on social media, garnering a response from JFK's official Twitter account. The story was then picked up by the Daily Mail and the New York Post.
"[I] haven't stopped crying since an hour ago. my balls still hurt so bad," the trans woman tweeted on Saturday night.
The alleged incident is unconfirmed and the trans person deleted the tweets. An archive of her thread can be read here.
