Alice Eve Slammed For Controversial Bruce Jenner Comments
The actress has rubbed A LOT of people up the wrong way with her views on the former Olympian's sex change...
The daughter of Waking The Dead actor Trevor Eve took to Instagram following Jenner’s admission that “for all intents and purposes” he is a woman, with the star quoted by the the Mail Online as writing: “Nope. If you were a woman no one would have heard of you because women can’t compete in the decathlon.
“You couldn’t be a hero. You would be a frustrated young athlete who wasn't given a chance. Until women are paid the same as men, then playing at being a “woman” while retaining the benefits of being a man is unfair.”
She concluded her bizarre rant with: “Do you have a vagina? Are you paid less than men? Then, my friend, you are a woman.”
Eve was soon branded “a bigot”, with many fans vowing to unfollow her on social-media, while some of her some followers accused her of being “transmisogynistic”.
Alice later deleted her posts, and appeared to backtrack on her controversial comments, by writing: “I do agree that the struggle for transgenders is unique and horrific.
“However, I do want to also support a cause I strongly believe in, the right for women to have equal rights to men. The transgender equality struggle is the next one, as we all know. And very real it is, too.”
Jenner and the rest of his famous family are yet to comment on her remarks.
