Caitlyn Jenner claims she has received death threats in the last week and blames the “so-called ‘inclusive’ LGBT community.”
Jenner, 73, spoke out on Sunday in a series of Twitter posts, claiming that she has received threats for expressing her views on current events.
“I have never received more death threats, death threats to my team, nasty hate mail than this week,” the Fox News contributor wrote on the micro-blogging platform. “It is all from the so-called ‘inclusive’ LGBT community. I am so disgusted by the hateful individuals threatening my life for giving my opinions on news topics of the day.”
“Since when is a different opinion grounds for such hatred and death wishes?” Jenner, the ex-husband of Kris Jenner, added in a follow-up tweet. Do better!”
“Differences of opinion, dialogue, and conversation are critical to making progress as a society,” she went on. “Trying to shut me down by threatening my life over and over will never stop me from speaking my opinion. NEVER!”
While Jenner did not elaborate on what urged the threats, she received a barrage of criticism last week after criticizing and misgendering transgender TikTok content creator Dylan Mulvaney.
Mulvaney, who has more than 8 million Instagram followers, became the center of attention after recently speaking with President Joe Biden at the White House about transgender healthcare.
A TikTok video of the trans rights activist attempting to “normalize women having bulges” soon resurfaced, as she recalled being stared at by strangers whenever she went out in tight clothing.
Detractors of the video included Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn, who tweeted that Biden “and radical left-wing lunatics want to make this absurdity normal.”
Responding to the post, Jenner, who transitioned to female in 2015, lauded Blackburn for “speaking out and having a backbone—one of the best senators we have. Let’s not ‘normalize’ any of what this person is doing. This is an absurdity!”
