Xian Bass, a student at University of New Mexico, is accusing R&B singer Miguel of sexually assaulting her. She claims that she went to club, saw Miguel, singer asked him for a photo.
She says he obliged, but then things went left shortly after.
According to Xian, she told Miguel how she likes to have orgasms to his music — and that’s when he grabbed and exposed her breasts.
In a video she posted to Instagram, she says, “He [Miguel] reaches his hand down my shirt and takes my breast out of my top. Like, literally pulls my breast out of my shirt right after we took a photo.” She then said he had a ‘disgusted’ look on his face upon seeing her breast.
She also wrote an open letter to Miguel:
I used to be a fan of your music.
I was a fan of your music until you blatantly disrespected my body in a public place. There is nothing I did or said that warranted this disgusting display of entitlement, rape culture, and male privilege. I approached you respectfully and you still decided my body was not sacred enough to be treated as a human being. After we took this photo, you took it upon yourself to grab my breast and remove it from my shirt WITHOUT CONSENT. You then proceeded to look at my naked breast with such a disgusting look on your face. It’s still embedded in my memory. The sneer of your lip and salivating mouth is making my stomach turn. I really don’t understand why you would do that to someone who approached you as a fan. I’m beyond disgusted right now. Are you used to treating random female strangers this way? Have you gotten away with this in the past?
Well, it stops HERE and NOW.
I will not sit in shameful silence and allow sexual assault to be normalized. #toxicmasculinity #maleprivilege #violated #rapecultureisreal #celebrityprivilege #iwasntaskingforit #speakup #speakupspeakout #nomiguel
