Nikita Dragun was placed in a male cell after she was arrested on Monday night — a decision that the transgender beauty influencer’s publicist finds abhorrent. 

“The situation with Nikita, who is legally female, being placed in a men’s unit of a Florida jail is extremely disturbing and dangerous,” Jack Ketsoyan of Full Scope Public Relations tells Page Six in a statement. 

“This decision made by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department directly violates their protocol, which mandates that transgender inmates are classified and housed based on safety needs and gender identity.”

The YouTuber — whose real name is Nikita Nguyen — “has been released and is now safe,” her rep revealed, also adding, “Thank you for respecting her privacy during this time.”

As previously reported, Dragun was taken into custody after she was caught walking around a luxury Miami hotel pool naked and throwing water at hotel staff and cops.

According to the police report, the hotel staff had allegedly told the 26-year-old to put her clothes back on. She purposefully threw water at them in protest, which is when the cops were called.
