In the video, Miquela describes a Lyft ride where she says a “creepy-ass man” in the car with her made her feel uncomfortable by touching her and asking her leading questions.
“Sure enough, I just feel this guy’s cold, meaty hand touch my leg as if he was confirming I’m real,” Miquela says in the video. “His hand literally lingers there rubbing my skin.”

She says she felt like he was “threatening” her and that he made a comment about “down there,” which led her to leave the car in the middle of the highway.
Of course, people are pissed that a not-real “person” created a very real story about being sexually harassed.
“Absolutely fucking not. ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT. A virtual project telling me some story of an unreal sexual assault pisses me off just as much as when women lie,” Twitter user @disturbance_atd wrote “It’s a fabrication. A dangerous one. There are ways to make @lilmiquela relatable. This isn’t one of them.”

the creators of lil miquela have apparently made 6M dollars through donations towards this ... mess https://t.co/58nze7E6K8— nicholas (@kranewife) December 13, 2019
Even singer Kehlani weighed in.
“Nah. at first it was kinda interesting,” she tweeted. “maybe. but @lilmiquela you’re playing wit real stories… real trauma.. sexual assault is a scary real reality and at this point you’re ignorantly offensive. what type of sick shit is this.”
