The transgender model and actress can be seen in the video trying to fight back after a white man named Dion Cini shoves her and another guy roughly in New York City.
Considering the bad treatment that the transgender community received from President Donald Trump, Indya Moore naturally became irritated when she saw a “Trump 2020” sign outside a filming studio in New York City on Monday, June 10. But when she tried to remove the sign away, the “Pose” star ended up getting involved in a physical altercation with a supporter of POTUS.
In a video which surfaced online, Moore could be seen stepping on the red sign before trying to take it away with her. However, the owner of the sign, a man named Dion Cini, suddenly came into the picture and grabbed his property. Both of them struggled over the sign for a bit, leading the white man to shove Moore and another guy roughly.
“Get off my stuff! Get the f**k out of here!” Cini could be heard yelling as he lunged towards Moore multiple times. Moore fought back by knocking Cini’s MAGA hat off before police finally got involved.
TMZ reported that after the fight, Cini filed a police report for larceny, saying that Moore attempted to steal his $250 sign. The IMG Models talent herself appeared to address the fight to her Twitter followers by writing, “Thank you for loving my community, fighting for us, supporting us fight for ourselves and others who are experiencing an increase of oppression and violence under this current administration.”
This is hardly the first time for Cini to make headlines due to his love for Trump. Back in November last year, he was banned from entering Disney World for waving pro-Trump banner during a ride. Spokesperson for Disney said in a statement that the issue was not with his political views, stressing that he violated park rules by using “any flag, banner or sign for commercial purposes” and inciting people.
However, Cini insisted that he wasn’t breaking the rules, saying in a phone interview, “I did not break the rules. I was on ride. I was not inciting a crowd. There was no crowd.”
