Conservative journalist Andy Ngo claimed on Twitter on Saturday, July 3, that as demonstrators clashed outside a Koreatown spa after a transgender woman apparently disrobed in an area reserved for women, members of Antifa were responsible for the violence.

Reportedly, nobody was arrested but at least five people were injured — three by assault and battery and two by assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Nicholas Prange said one person who was assaulted sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a medical facility in a private ambulance.

Ngo claimed on Twitter, sharing a video: “At the Wi Spa protest in Los Angeles, a lone young man gets his sign ripped up by an antifa. A mob of antifa then assaults him to the ground & kicks him after he got out pepper spray.”

Ngo also said, sharing a video, “Fighting & rioting broke out at the antifa counter-protest outside the Wi Spa in Los Angeles. Antifa gathered to assault those who opposed the spa over a purported incident where a person flashed their genitals to women & girls.” Ngo also claimed that Antifa threatened, followed, and hit a Latino couple at the protest, allegedly saying, “You’re gonna get your a** knocked out.”

He also claimed, “Antifa started a fire on the street at their riot in Los Angeles to counter a group of people who protested the Wi Spa, a business where a person allegedly exposed their genitals to women & girls. Antifa called the protesters transphobes as they beat them.”



 



 



 



 

He made several other claims about Antifa being involved in the violence. And this is not the first time Ngo has done that. Last month, he claimed that he was chased and assaulted in the last week of May during a downtown Portland protest. He said then, “Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland.”

Ngo’s history of blaming Antifa from time to time has earned him criticism online. And this time was no exception. One person tweeted, “Andy Ngo after every protest he inserts himself into so he can provoke people and then claim they are antifa,” sharing a scene from ‘Reno 911’ where a man can be seen saying, “I was murdered”. Another person shared a meme with the text: “rare behind-the-scenes footage of andy ngô writing his antifa book.” There were more memes. One person shared one saying, “I saw a clip of a man in black clothes bothering someone, IT MUST BE ANTIFA!”



 



 



 

Reviewing ‘Unmasked’, Ngo’s book, Alexander Nazaryan wrote for the LA Times that the book is a “culmination of Ngo’s single-minded quest to depict an assortment of leftists as a unified vanguard whose mission is to ‘destroy the nation-state, America in particular’.” Nazaryan noted that Ngo’s fundamentally flimsy arguments and reporting are unconvincing, and added in a cutting statement: “‘Unmasked’ will do no more to help Americans understand antifa than ‘Borat’ helped us understand Kazakhstan.”

In a statement to Los Angeles Magazine, Wi Spa USA said: "Like many other metropolitan areas, Los Angeles contains a transgender population, some of whom enjoy visiting a spa. Wi Spa strives to meet the needs of all its customers." Attorney Peter F Jazayeri, who is representing the spa, said: "California law prohibits discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming people in business establishments."
