Woman kicked out of women's bathroom

A woman who says she was kicked out of the Beverly Hills Hotel while trying to use the restroom is demanding an apology.Songwriter Tanya White admits she doesn't dress like the typical woman, but she says security guards went too far when they confronted her in the women's bathroom at the hotel last September.

White claims that even after proving she was a woman, they told her to get out and escorted her off the premises.

"The men said, 'You need to get out of the bathroom.' When Latrice said, 'She's supposed to be here, she's a woman,' security responded, 'It needs to leave,'" said attorney Gloria Allred.

"To be called an 'it,' I'm a human being, not an 'it,'" said White.

Allred said her client isn't after money, just an apology.

The Beverly Hills Hotel declined to comment on the matter.
