THE WHAT? Anti-trans social media users have pushed back against L’Oréal-owned Maybelline’s partnership with trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney.
THE DETAILS Twitter users, including right-wing public figures such as Jordan Peterson, incited a boycott against the make-up company, following Mulvaney posting a video of herself using Maybelline’s products.
The video was flooded with comments with users stating they would refuse to buy from the cosmetics brand.
THE WHY? Anti-trans rhetoric has been growing in conservative U.S., with Mulvaney becoming a target of right-wing campaigners following her transition from a man to a woman.
Budweiser was also targeted by a boycott following a marketing association with Mulvaney.
