The actress has argued the courageous Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who publicly came out as a transgender woman on Friday night, is “playing at being a woman.”
33-year-old Alice Eve points out that if Bruce really were a female he wouldn’t have been able to compete in the 1972 Olympic decathlon, which made him a national treasure.
“If you were a woman no one would have heard of you because women can’t compete in the decathlon,” she said in a deleted post on her Instagram page.
“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.”
“Do you have a vagina? Are you paid less than men? Then, my friend, you are a woman.”
Some of her followers found her remarks distasteful, however, and said they would unfollow her.
One said: “Your notion that Jenner is ‘playing’ at being a woman is honestly disgusting.”
Another added: “This is transphobia at its finest.”
She posted these two Instagram photos after she deleting the offensive post.
