PIERS Morgan has slammed Sarah Silverman of “peak woke insanity” after she accused Caitlyn Jenner of being transphobic.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star – who came out as transgender in 2015 – said she believes biological boys who are trans should not be allowed to compete in girls’ sports at school.
Now comic Sarah has waded into the controversial subject – and hit out at Caitlyn over her views.
Sharing a video of Sarah’s podcast rant, Piers said: “Wow. You’re accusing a trans woman of being transphobic, because she stated the bleeding obvious & wants fairness for girls? This is peak woke insanity.”
Former Olympian Caitlyn 71, made her views known as she continued her bid of California Governor.
In a brief interview with TMZ last week, she said: “This is a question of fairness, that’s why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls sports in school.
“It just isn’t fair, and we have to protect girls sports in our schools.”
Reacting to her views, furious stand-up comic and actress Sarah said: “Caitlyn, you’re a woman, right?
“A trans girl is a girl. She should have the same rights as cis girls… What, you think a trans girl is too strong?
“What about tall girls as opposed to short girls? What about boys in high school who are teeny tiny and their teammates have already hit puberty and are shaving?
“Why don’t you just have co-ed sports divided by weight and height, you know? This is so dumb. They are legislating this s— without one single example of how this plays out.”
She added: “This is not worrying about girls’ sports. Uh, believe me. There are better ways to worry about girls’ sports… This is not worrying. This is not concern for girls’ sports. It’s transphobia, full stop.
“It’s such a bummer when such a prominent trans woman is such a t***.”
Caitlyn’s comments came as multiple states recently moved towards banning transgender girls and women from partaking in female sports.
Florida recently passed legislation that would restrict entry to girl’s sports teams to those who were born female. Transgender female athletes would be limited to playing coed sports or on teams with male athletes.
The bill applies to high school and college sports sponsored by public schools, including intramural and club teams.
