Former NCAA swimmer Riley Gaines unloaded on Jamillah Moore, Ed.D. — San Francisco State University’s Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management — over her response to a protest at last week’s Turning Point USA event.

At the event, trans activists allegedly assaulted Gaines and surrounded her, forcing her to barricade herself in a locked room for safety — and at one point, protesters demanded that she pay them for safe passage out of the building.

In response to the incident, Moore sent a letter praising the protesters for standing strong in the face of “abhorrent” views and claiming that they had engaged peacefully.

“I’m sorry did this just say PEACEFUL…. I was assaulted. I was extorted and held for random. The protestors demanded I pay them if I wanted to make it home safely,” Gaines said in response to the letter. “I missed my flight home because I was barricaded in a classroom… We must have different definitions of peaceful.”

Gaines went on to say that if the protests had been peaceful, she would have been happy to engage the protesters in discussion. “I have no problem with ‘peaceful’ protest. I actually welcome it. I was grateful to see a diverse crowd in the room during my speech which I expressed multiple times. We had great dialogue and listened to each other. But that ambush was the opposite of peaceful.”

Gaines then addressed Moore directly, asking, “@DrJamillahMoore you write this??? Do you need more video proof??? Allow me.”

Gaines shared video of what had happened with Moore, who then apparently blocked the outspoken swimmer.

The woman who released the statement following the riot where I was verbally and physically assaulted at @SFSU (to which she called peaceful) blocked me,” Gaines tweeted. “I guess it’s easier for her to ignore me than to denounce violence against women. She won’t be able to ignore my lawsuit.”

Gaines has announced that she planned to sue the university over the incident, and her agent has called for the expulsion of the students involved.
