Was Kylie Jenner’s Father’s Day Post for Caitlyn Jenner Transphobic? Some are Saying ‘Yes’
Kylie Jenner wished her parent Caitlyn Jenner a happy Father’s Day in an Instagram post. Many on social media are accusing the 20-year-old reality star of transphobia because the makeup mogul shared a pre-transition, throwback photo of Caitlyn with her children, Kendall and Kylie. “So lucky to have you,” Kylie Jenner’s Father’s Day post caption reads.
Many on social media took issue with the post. Some think that Kylie should have referred to Caitlyn as her mother and paid tribute to her on Mother’s Day, while others were upset that she chose to share a pic of her parent pre-transition.
Instagram user mala.vidaaWonder wonders “if it bothers Caitlyn to still be called Dad even though she’s a transgender woman or to see old photos of who she use to be. Usually these are a big NO in transgender community.”
