Megyn Kelly’s seven-word reaction to a video of transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney complaining that some news sites called him a man has gone viral.
The star of “The Megyn Kelly Show” told her 2.7 million followers on Twitter on Friday what she thought about Mulvaney’s statement that it should be “illegal” to say “he” when talking about the influencer.
“Move to Canada, Dylan,” wrote Kelly. “You’ll love it.”
Kelly’s comment about Canada seems to be a reference to a 2021 Canadian court decision that said intentionally misgendering people at work is a violation of human rights. The court said that this goes against the Human Rights Act of British Columbia. The CBC said that breaking the rule won’t get you arrested, but it could cost you thousands of dollars in fines and force you to take an inclusion class.
At the time this article was written, the post from the former Fox News star had been seen more than 1.3 million times and was still growing.
Kelly’s post had a tweet from Daily Wire host Matt Walsh responding to Mulvaney’s video.
Walsh tweeted to his 1.7 million followers, “Dylan Mulvaney wants people who call him a man to be arrested.” “Do you still think that I’ve been too mean to this guy?”
“Like, the stories written about me that always use “he” and call me a guy, I feel like that should be against the law. “I don’t know, that’s just bad journalism,” Mulvaney said in a video from October 2022 that is being widely shared on Twitter.
Mulvaney talked to fans for the first time since a Thursday video about the TikTok star’s deal with Bud Light set off a firestorm of debate.
“People have said a lot about me. Some of them are so far from the truth that I heard my name and didn’t know who they were talking about,” the celebrity said. “It was so loud that I couldn’t even hear what was being said, so I sat in the back.”
“But this time it’s from other adults,” Mulvaney said. “If they’re going to say anything bad about me, they should say that I’m in the theater and that I’m campy. But this is just who I am and has always been the case.”
“What I find hard to understand is the need to be cruel and to make people feel less human,” the protester said. “In history, nothing has ever been fixed by making people less human.”
