Fans of Drew Barrymore has defended the actress after she kneeled in front of trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney during her talk show The Drew Barrymore Show.
Mulvaney has been receiving backlash after she appeared in promotional videos for major brands like Bud Light and Nike.
On March 14, she appeared on the show and talked about her transition journey as well as the negativity she has been experiencing.
“There’s so much hatred directed at the trans community right now, it’s everywhere,” Mulvaney said.
“I think the greatest weapon that I can contribute is trans joy and comedy and talking about hard subjects,” she went on, adding that she wants everyone to see that she is ‘not a monster.’
“I’m not somebody that is trying to do anything but be myself,” Mulvaney said, then told Barrymore: “I look at you and I can’t imagine anyone disliking you.”
The compassionate host then kneeled in front of Mulvaney and said: “Oh please, do you want to know ironically who dislikes me the most sometimes? Myself.”
The act led viewers to call out the actress, with US conversative political commentator Liz Wheeler taking to Twitter and described Barrymore’s actions as ‘degrading’ and ‘anti-woman.’
She also claimed that “transgenderism is a religious ideology so worshipping the idol makes sense in a twisted way.”
A former staff of Trump, Sebastian Gorka, also tweeted: “Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore kneels in front of the altar of Transgender insanity.”
But fans were quick to defend the actress, with one person writing: “To the idiots mad at Drew Barrymore for daring to show compassion here she is doing the same thing she did with Dylan Mulvaney. Except this is Brendan Fraser who just won best actor at the Oscars after being blacklisted because he said he was s*xually assaulted.”
Another wrote: “Anti trans fanatics has to lie to justify being mad about things.”
