Janet Mock Responds To Comedian's Outrageous Trans Murder Comments

Laverne Cox took to Twitter to condemn stand-up comedian Lil Duval for making transphobic and violent comments while a guest on the radio show "Breakfast Club".

According to The Washington Post, two of the show's hosts, Charlamagne tha God and Angela Yee, appear to correct Duval for this statement.

On why she went on the show in the first place:Yet I was hopeful that I could use the show's vast platform to speak directly to their predominantly black and Latinx listeners, who are often excluded from the conversations held in mainstream LGBT spaces (which are largely white, moneyed, and concerned with the centering of cis folk). "I didn't say I'm going to kill transgenders", he said.

Among Twitter's top trending topics is the comedian's name, with many users taking shots at his insensitive comment. It hurts my spirit cause this isn't amusing.

Chris Jericho in altercation with fan outside memorial show
It's almost impossible to tell who's at fault for inciting the confrontation, but Jericho has already issued a public apology. In a recent update to the story, Jericho did reach out to TMZ to give his side of what took place in New York City on Friday.

Mock addressed the comments and called out not only Duval, but the show's hosts for allowing such hateful speech on their show.

Mock also makes an excellent point about the fact the Breakfast Club were joking about the murder of trans women, despite the fact they consistently reiterate how important it is to keep Black people safe.

But asked what he'd do if he discovered a woman he was dating was transgender, Duvall replied, "This might sound messed up and I don't care-she dying".

The blowback continued into Sunday.

But now we are certain that the company is mainly focusing on giving more importance to the camera with the ZenFone 4 smartphone. The invite also shows a dual-camera setup which pretty much confirms the fact that this smartphone will have a dual camera setup.

The now-viral conversation started about six minutes into the episode, when Breakfast Club host Angela Yee brought up President Donald Trump's proposal last week to ban transgender individuals from USA military service. "The trans community is boycotting the Breakfast Club because your music and your ideology reinforces transphobia that kills us", one member said.

'We are not a joke!

Part-time actor and comedian Lil Duval is probably going to have a rough week on social media. One user tweeted he "said what any straight man would say". And just so we are clear: Just because you find me and my sisters attractive does not mean we desire you.

"It's this deplorable rhetoric that leads many cis men, desperately cluthing their heterosexuality, to yell at, kick, spit on, shoot, burn, stone and kill trans women of color", she wrote. "I lost it", he said.
