The model and reality TV star has been branded 'transphobic' after claiming rapper Tyga "loves trans".
On Monday (Aug 2) Blac Chyna took to Twitter to make bold claims about Tyga – whom she shares her 8-year-old son, King Cairo with.
The 33-year-old wrote: "Tyga loves Trans, me 2" in a tweet which quickly went viral online. Many popular American hip-hop blogs reposted Chyna's tweet, gaining mixed reactions.
She was not done at that point. Chyna tweeted again, writing: "Tell the truth Tyga!!!!”, while tagging the rapper on Twitter.
While some fans thought it was funny that Chyna was taunting her ex, others called her out for 'being transphobic'.
One fan wrote: "What’s really funny about Blac Chyna being openly transphobic in a feeble attempt to embarrass Tyga is the fact that nobody cares enough about her to “cancel” her".
Another fan wrote: "i guess we adding blac chyna to the long list on transphobic celebrities".
According to The Mirror, in 2016, a transgender model, who claims she had a fling with Tyga, released text messages claiming to expose the alleged affair he had while with Kylie Jenner.
Tyga had denied that he had an affair with model Mia Isabella, but at the time, she continuously insisted that they were more than friends.
“After I had moved to LA, I became single and we continued our friendship until it DID become romantic," she told Radar in 2015.
Mia took to Instagram and shared a screenshot of her Instagram DMs, claiming they were from Tyga – where he allegedly asked to meet up with her.
Despite past claims, Chyna's attempt to 'out' Tyga rubbed fans the wrong way

While this blew up on social media, it was quickly shut down by Chyna's reps, as they claimed she wasn't responsible for those tweets – she had been hacked.
Chyna's representative reportedly told The Shade Room that her account was hacked.
"Unfortunately, Blac Chyna’s Twitter account was hacked yesterday as she would not purposely speak negatively about Tyga online,” the rep reportedly stated before apologising for the remarks.
