Taking to social media, Schafer live-streamed the altercation with the bouncer.

She said, “[You] said my friend could not come in because she’s trans.

“You’re on live with 7 million people by the way.

“Don’t come to Silq. It’s not safe for transgender people.”

Schafer ended the live stream saying, “Fuck Silq – I don’t know, “Internet, do what you do. Take them out.” 

In a post to Instagram, Silq responded that they had fired the bouncer.

Silq posted, “Electronic music is love and not hate. Anyone who does not respect the principles of electronic music has no place in our colorful world. 

“We apologize at this point to Hunter Schafer and your company for the misunderstanding at our door in the night from Saturday to Sunday. This kind of thing has no place in our world and simply must not happen. We hereby expressly distance ourselves from any form of discrimination. 

“After a conversation with the corresponding security employee, he was kicked out today. We, the Silq are and remain a LGBT friendly club and look forward to many more great nights with you.”
