Comedian Makes Disgustingly Violent Anti-Trans Joke On The Air, Proudly Refuses To Apologize

COMMENTS

Comedian Lil Duval went onto Friday's "The Breakfast Club" radio show and disparaged transwomen. 

Twitter

He said he would kill a transwoman if he learned she was born a male.

Since transwomen are often the victim of violence, this has not been well-received.

Detractors soon commented against the comedian, citing the myth of transgender women as being predators.

The truth has been shared with the comedian. 

By voices such as Laverne Cox, the transgender star of "Orange Is the New Black."

Yet, he still seems to be silent on the issue. 

Cox reached out via Twitter, sharing a tearful reminder about the lives of many transgender individuals.

To learn more about the issues transgender people face, head to the HRC website. Unsurprisingly, there's a whole section on transgender individuals and the violence they endure.
