Diplo Defends Madonna And Makes Transphobic Caitlyn Jenner Comment In One Tweet – SEE HERE
Diplo came to the defense of Madonna after online haters attacked the 56-year-old singer for trying to be sexy in her video for “Bitch I’m Madonna,” but in the process the music producer made a transphobic remark about Caitlyn Jenner. Diplo wrote, “I’m confused that Madonna not allowed to be sexy but Caitlyn Jenner is.” The record producer has since deleted the tweet, but Gossip Cop has a screengrab of it below.
While Diplo may have been trying to make a point about how women over a certain age have every right to be sexy, many are questioning why he singled out Jenner (of all women) for the comparison. A Twitter user whose handle is @yasminR_xx called Diplo’s remark “careless and damaging for the trans community.” A woman who goes by @LourveLopez told Diplo on Twitter that people should let Jenner “live and STFU.” And a Twitter user by the name of @tiknamonster asked Diplo, “What’s this got to do with Caitlyn? You’re sick!”
Diplo seems to have a habit of tweeting things he probably shouldn’t have. As Gossip Cop reported in November, the record producer posted an unprovoked tweet that “someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty.” He was similarly blasted for that remark by a slew of Swift fans, as well as by Lorde.
