Transgender activist Jessica Yaniv claimed in a video posted to Twitter on Friday that Canadian restaurant New York Fries denied the activist service for being transgender; Yaniv swiftly filed a complaint. However, according to New York Fries, the incident never happened.
“I went to the Pacific Center Mall and I went to New York Fires — and this is gonna be on my next Human Rights complaint — but I asked for some fries and they literally said, ‘not for you, sir, you’re transgender,'” Yaniv told The Post Millennial’s Lindsay Shepherd.
“I just called the manager of New York Fries to see if this was true. It’s not. The manager witnessed this interaction. All that happened was that Yaniv approached (surprise, surprise) a female Indian cashier, ordered & then left quickly, & Yaniv’s mom came & yelled at them,” Shepard said in tweet captioning the video.
According to Canadian coverage of Yaniv’s so-called “activism,” complaints filed against 16 female estheticians for refusing to wax his male genitals were predominately targeting immigrants. Moreover, Yaniv admitted to using “racist” language to pro-LGBT Pink News last week, and in a livestream interview with YouTuber Blaire White, who is also transgender, Yaniv mocked a hypothetical Sikh immigrant, yelling, “Me no speak any English.”
In a subsequent tweet, Shepard said the activist had “already filed a complaint with New York Fries head office.” The manager of the establishment told the reporter that “his staff doesn’t even really know the word ‘transgender’ so they wouldn’t have said that, and that working in downtown Vancouver they are accustomed to serving transgender and disabled people.”
Yaniv has also been plagued by serious accusations of misconduct with minors. During Yaniv’s interview with White, the activist denied sending predatory messages (some of which were confirmed to have come from the activist’s “trustednerd” verified Facebook account by The Post Millennial), but admitted to seeking out underage girls for a job as a social media manager for a popular girls singing group.
Yaniv also admitted to sending voice messages in so-called “baby voice,” but contended they were sent to an of-age friend and not to an underage girl named Jessica Rumpel, who accused Yaniv of the misconduct. In one of the voice messages, however, the person in question (Yaniv, according to Rumpel) says that they like to watch “Jessica Rumpel’s” breasts “bounce up and down.” The activist also noted that it would be perfectly fine for him to “attend” a pool party with topless 12-year-old girls.
