Transgender Woman's Hollywood Beating by Thugs Captured on Video

Transgender Woman's Hollywood Beating by Thugs Captured on Video

A transgender woman was kicked and pummeled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and some of it was caught on video.

The LAPD this week released the security footage of a douchebag in a YSL t-shirt and two to three other winners (one of them is seen smiling) with the hope that someone might recognize them and turn them in:

Cops said the victim, identified only as Vivian, was attacked at 2:15 a.m. on May 31 while she was walking on a stretch of Hollywood Boulevard.

Says the department:

Her injuries were very severe, and she remained hospitalized for seven days.

Vivian was in a sheer pink or orange dress when the goons trained their fists and feet on her, police said.

The LAPD this week announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects involved in the beating.

If you think you know who these winners are you can call detectives at 213-972-2967 or email them at
