Eden The Doll and friends 'robbed at knife point in transphobic attack'
Eden The Doll and two of her friends were ‘attacked and robbed’ in Hollywood, with the influencer sharing videos of the horrifying incident.
The Instagram star – real name Eden Estrada – claimed that some men attacked her, and stole her phone when she and her friends, fellow influencers Jaslene White Rose and Joslyn Flawless, were out on Hollywood Boulevard.
She said that Joslyn was held at knife point and threatened, while Jaslene was knocked unconscious.
Sharing videos of the incident on Instagram, Eden said her phone was taken and added: ‘We initially tried to get it back but his friend started throwing rocks at us.
‘We tried to run away but they chased us down.
‘Aside from hitting me, he tried to rob me again. They outnumbered us.’
The 25-year-old added: ‘Now he hits @jaslenewhiterose and stole her bag. His friends chase us down in cars.
‘In panic and still recovering from hip surgery, @joslynflawless hands her bag to this man. They mock her as she falls and he throws and breaks my phone. They flat out stole her bag and recorded themselves doing it.
‘They grab a scooter and throw it at @jaslenewhiterose.’
Eden went on to say the man tried to sell her her phone back, and she gave him all her cash.
‘Worst possible thing happened,’ she added. ‘Other guy came back and bashed @jaslenewhiterose head open. She completely passed out on me.’
Eden claimed that the men mocked her as she cried for help, and added that she was ‘traumatised’.
She shared a video of a police car driving by, and claimed the police ‘stopped, looked, and kept driving’.
The influencer alleged: ‘As all this was going on, that same man held @joslynflawless at knife point and made her take her shoes off, stole her bracelets, and threatened to kill her. @jaslenewhiterose finally wakes up.’
Eden finished her account of the incident by saying that she finally got her phone to work and called an ambulance.
All three of the influencers are black trans women. Following her account of the incident, Eden pointed out that, just weeks ago, protests erupted around the world in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
‘People preach black lives matter and want equality for all but this is how they treat BLACK TRANS WOMEN. If their lives don’t matter, none of ours do!!!!!’ she added.
Eden, Joslyn and Jaslene are best known for being Instagram models, with all three boasting an audience of thousands.
Following their posts, the trio have received an outpouring of love and support.
TikTok star SkincareByHyram wrote: ‘Edenthe Doll’s stories, This is EXACTLY why Black Trans Women and Trans Women of Color need our attention & protection! I’m horrified.’

Another aded: ‘Watched eden the doll’s story on ig and i literally felt sick to my stomach…… the way men feel so comfortable being extremely violent towards trans women is terrifying.’
