Trans activist Rose Montoya, a man who identifies as a woman, apologized after briefly going topless at a White House Pride Month event, an act the Biden administration later called “inappropriate and disrespectful.”

In a three-minute long clip posted on Friday on TikTok, Montoya said that “Today I need to apologize…in a quick moment of fleeting and overwhelming trans joy I decided to do something unbecoming of a guest of the President at the White House lawn celebration.”

“I want to take this moment to apologize for the impact of my actions,” the transgender influencer added, without specifically saying what those actions were.

Montoya went through a lengthy list of apologies to various LGBT groups before claiming that “family and friends” have been “harassed” after the incident.

“Last but not least, I would like to apologize to the president, the White House, and the nation,” Montoya said. “It was also never my intention to create a situation that would lead to harassment and harm of myself and others.”

“Nor for my little moment of trans joy to be weaponized by vile people of the opposition,” Montoya added.

The video concluded with a plea to members of the media to respect both Montoya’s family and friends’ “privacy at this time.”

The comments came after several trans activists went topless at the WH event, as previously reported.

Shortly after the images surfaced, the Biden administration issued a statement calling the stunt “inappropriate and disrespectful,” and saying that those who participated will not be invited to “future events.”
