Xian Bass said that she used to be a fan of Miguel until, according to her, he sexually assaulted her.
She took to social media to tell her story and also posted a video clip of herself explaining what happened.
In telling the story of how Miguel allegedly touched her breast, Bass said, “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,” she added.
She then continued, “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?” she asked. “Well, it stops HERE and NOW. I will not sit in shameful silence and allow sexual assault to be normalized.”
