The athlete slammed Nike for their recent collaboration with trans TikToker Dylan Mulvaney.
Caitlyn Jenner has critiqued the recent collaboration between Nike and trans TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney, calling it ”an outrage”. As the New York Post notes, Jenner addressed the collaboration on Twitter, after Mulvaney announced becoming a brand ambassador of the brand.
“As someone that grew up in awe of what [Nike co-founder] Phil Knight did, it is a shame to see such an iconic American company go so woke!” Caitlyn tweeted. “We can be inclusive but not at the expense of the mass majority of people, and have some decency while being inclusive. This is an outrage.”
“EQUALITY > INCLUSIVITY (STOP TRYING TO ERASE WOMEN). The differences between men and women are real and are a good thing! It doesn’t make trans ppl a bad thing, either.” read another tweet posted on April 7.
After the Internet exploded with comments addressing the statements, Caitlyn explained the outrage in another Tweet. ”The context for my outrage was how ridiculous they treated the other 10x gold medalist when she got pregnant. It wasn’t commentary on Mulvaney, but on the poor treatment of other ambassadors, in what appears to be an effort to be woke. Mulvaney is smart”, Jenner said.
Caitlyn Jenner “Fairness First”
The comments were made shortly after the athlete launched the “Fairness First” committee, which is a movement that aims at fighting “the radical gender ideology”, according to this article. “Today I publicly launch Fairness First PAC to fight the radical gender ideology, put parental rights at the forefront of education, and keep boys out of women’s sports,” Caitlyn tweeted earlier this week.
As the website reads, the “Fairness First” is “a movement, non-partisan in nature, with the intention of empowering parental rights especially in light of radical gender ideology infiltrating our children in school — especially in sports and the classroom”.
