Averie Chancel Medlock, 25, was kicked out of the Ranger College cheerleading camp in Texas following the incident
A transgender cheerleader has been removed from a cheerleading camp after reportedly choking a teammate who told her that she was “a man with a penis”.
Averie Chancel Medlock, 25, was kicked out of the Ranger College camp in Texas, US following an altercation with a 17-year-old female teammate, known as Karleigh.
Police were called to the scene as other participants of the camp locked themselves inside a room to hide from Medlock, News.com.au reports.
Medlock, who was subsequently removed from the camp, took to social media to explain the incident.
The trans cheerleader said on Facebook: “Well guys I’m officially retired as a cheerleader as of last night at 5:30am.
“A girl on the team was being very disrespectful and told me I am a man with a penis and that (men) should not be on the team.
“I stood up for myself and she called her mum and dad because she was scared because I (stood) up for myself.
“Her father said, ‘She still has testosterone and a penis and I will kill anyone who comes after my daughter.’”
The 17-year-old’s father, Mike Jones, denied the accusations.
He wrote on Facebook: “I ask you what you would have done when receiving a phone call at 1am in the morning from your daughter stating they had locked themselves in the room with other girls.
“At no time did I ever say anything about your race or your gender.”
