Marvel Director Blasted Over Anti-Trans Tweets

“Thor: Love and Thunder” director Taika Waititi’s past tweets came back to haunt him this week, when he began trending for “transphobic” social media posts he made nearly a decade ago.

In 2013, the “Jojo Rabbit” director expressed his distaste for the Miss Universe pageant. “Sorry, no offense,” he wrote. “Combining heels and bikinis whilst plastering your face in orange so you resemble a leather pudding is totes empowering.” 

In a follow-up post, he added, “No disrespect to men who want to be/dress as women. I should have just said their makeup looks manly. Also no disrespect to meth users.”

After one replier screeched at him for “slut-shaming, transphobia, and immense misogyny,” Waititi replied, “Is that transphobia? These poor girls go to extreme lengths to say I’m beautiful and the result is not real beauty.”

“My trans friends can walk in heels but you’re right, actual kathoey (Thai trans women) are better looking,” he continued

Twitter sleuths also unearthed an April 2015 post where Waititi dead named Caitlyn Jenner after she transitioned. 

Jenner made headlines of her own this weekend for supporting the recent FINA ruling, which bans transgender women from from competing in the women’s category if they have transitioned after 12-years-old.

The former Olympian shared an article about transgender NCAA Champion swimmer Lia Thomas being kept from heading to the Olympics by the swimming’s international body. 

“It worked!” Jenner tweeted. “I took a lot of heat — but what’s fair is fair! If you go through male puberty you should not be able to take medals away from females. Period.”
