Don’t count former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield among the leftist liberals fawning over cross-dresser Bruce Jenner.
Holyfield was not impressed with the 65-year-old former Olympian dressed in drag as his alter ego “Caitlyn” during his acceptance speech for the Arthur Ashe Courage award at the 2015 ESPYs last night.
Jenner wore a white floor length Versace frock for his acceptance speech. “Trans people deserve something vital, they deserve your respect,” Jenner demanded from the podium.
But Holyfield apparently doesn’t believe cross-dressers deserve respect for wearing women’s clothing.
When an Associated Press reporter asked Holyfield for his opinion on “Caitlyn,” Holyfield replied, “I just know that’s Bruce Jenner and I’ll leave it at that.”
Holyfield wasn’t alone in his condemnation of Jenner.
Many outraged sports fans took to social media to slam Jenner — a known cross-dresser — for exploiting transgenderism for fame and profit.
