Lady Gaga Stands Up for Dylan Mulvaney Amid Backlash on International Women’s Day

In a striking show of solidarity, Lady Gaga has stepped forward to support Dylan Mulvaney amidst a wave of online backlash following a social media tribute to both celebrities on International Women’s Day. The tribute, intended to celebrate their achievements, unfortunately attracted negative attention, sparking a significant online controversy.

Lady Gaga, in a heartfelt response, shared a photo with Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender activist, to counteract the negativity. She expressed her dismay at the hostile reactions to Dylan’s Instagram post from International Women’s Day, which featured the two together. Gaga criticized the derogatory comments, emphasizing that such hatred constitutes violence.

Gaga articulated her frustration with the media’s portrayal of the incident, stating, “It’s appalling to me that a post about National Women’s Day by Dylan Mulvaney and me would be met with such vitriol and hatred. When I see a newspaper reporting on hatred but calling it ‘backlash’ I feel it is important to clarify that hatred is hatred, and this kind of hatred is violence.” She further clarified that the negative reactions were not mere backlash but outright hatred.

The singer also highlighted the ongoing societal challenges in accepting and celebrating transgender individuals. Gaga, while expressing her protective stance towards the trans community, clarified that she does not speak for them but stands with them in solidarity.

Gaga’s message culminated in a call for unity among women and an appeal for equality and peace for individuals of all gender identities. She envisioned a world where everyone is celebrated equally, regardless of their gender identity or race.

This incident is not Dylan Mulvaney’s first encounter with controversy. Previously, her collaboration with Bud Light sparked a significant boycott, impacting Anheuser-Busch’s financial performance. Critics, including Kid Rock, publicly denounced the partnership, with some going as far as destroying Bud Light products in protest.

Despite the backlash, Dylan Mulvaney received support from various quarters, including Paris Hilton and ‘Drag Race’s Sasha Colby, highlighting the divided public opinion on this issue.

Now, with Lady Gaga’s vocal support, Dylan Mulvaney finds a powerful ally in her corner, underscoring the importance of solidarity and understanding in the face of adversity.
