Some predicted it would only be a matter of time before someone challenged North Carolina’s HB2 law concerning transgender bathrooms. That day is now here. Alexis Adams, a male who has transitioned to female, was allegedly escorted out of the women’s restroom by security at the Durham Transit Center after claiming a janitor confronted him and told him to use the men’s restroom.
Last week, Adams told WTVD News how the incident affected him, saying, “I couldn’t think. I couldn’t speak. I was speechless … It was embarrassing. I was outed in front of everybody.” Adams claimed he felt helpless, “I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t fight it. I couldn’t tell them you’re wrong because it is the law,” he said.
However, newly released footage is telling a different story. In fact, local police investigating the claims told the press they were unable to corroborate Adams’ story.
