Trans model gets banned from the White House after going topless at Joe Biden's Pride event

Rose Montoya copped a lot of criticism for her defiant video, however she's hit back at the negative comments.

A trans model has been banned from attending future events at the White House after she went topless during Joe Biden's Pride event.

Rose Montoya was one of hundreds who were invited to the South Lawn to celebrate Pride Month.

The 27-year-old even got to meet the US President and the First Lady, and she shared snaps of her day on social media.

She declared 'it is an honour' and that 'trans rights are human rights' when meeting the Commander in Chief.

However, she divided opinion when she pulled down her top and exposed her breasts in front of the Truman Balcony alongside trans men.

A spokesperson for the White House has told The New York Post that Ms Montoya won't be welcomed back anytime soon.

“This behavior is inappropriate and disrespectful for any event at the White House,” they said.

“It is not reflective of the event we hosted to celebrate LGBTQI+ families or the other hundreds of guests who were in attendance.

"Individuals in the video will not be invited to future events.”

Rose copped a lot of criticism in the wake of her video going viral on Instagram, however she quickly hit back at the people calling her inappropriate.

The 27-year-old said: “Going topless in DC is legal, and I fully support the movement to free the nipples.”

The trans creator also questioned why her chest was being sexualised by people now that she identified as a woman.

“Why is my chest now deemed inappropriate or illegal when I show it off?” she pointedly argued.

“All you’re doing is affirming I’m a woman.”

Continuing, she told her 103,000 Instagram followers: “My trans masculine friends were showing off their top surgery scars and living in joy and I wanted to join them.”

Montoya, who began transitioning in 2015, then revealed that she’d also covered her nipples during the incident to be ‘safe’ - insisted that she had ‘zero intention of trying to be vulgar’.

Instead, the model told viewers that she was simply ‘existing’ in her body.

She has posted to Instagram saying she has been bombarded with hundreds of messages in the wake of her viral video.

Rose says she will make a statement to the public soon.
