Riley Gaines says TikTok removed a video in which she never even spoke a single word

Riley Gaines noted that a video that she posted — in which she never even spoke — has been removed from her TikTok account.

"This video just got removed from my tik tok for violating community guidelines but I literally didn't say a word," Gaines noted in a post on X, while retweeting a post that includes the relevant video.

In the video, Gaines can be seen eating cereal while a video plays in which an individual announces their pronouns and then proceeds to rattle off a massive list of bizarre self-descriptions.

"I am a white transmasculine, femme, nonbinary, temporarily mostly able-bodied, neuro-divergent, obsessive compulsive, chronically ill, culturally Jewish, Unitarian Universalist, nonmonogamous, demilowromantic, greydemibisexual, survivor of acute and complex trauma, millenial, and cat parent in mental health recovery," the person declares in the video.

"Poor cat," Gaines wrote earlier this month when sharing the video on X.

Gaines is a former University of Kentucky swimmer who has been speaking out against allowing men who identify as women to compete in women's sports.

In the NCAA Women's Championships 200 freestyle final last year, Gaines tied for fifth place with transgender swimmer Lia Thomas, according to swimmingworldmagazine.com.

Thomas, a man who identifies as a woman, previously made waves while swimming in women's competions, including by winning first place in the 500 free at the NCAA Championships in 2022.

"Lia Thomas is not a brave, courageous woman who EARNED a national title. He is an arrogant, cheat who STOLE a national title from a hardworking, deserving woman. The @ncaa is responsible," Gaines has noted.
