It's rough times out there for millionaire social media stars who are enjoying the highest level possible of celebrity, vogue, adulation and popular influence:
Content creator-turned-transgender icon Dylan Mulvaney is responding to rising criticism over [his] brand partnerships with Bud Light and Nike.
While speaking on the Onward With Rosie O'Donnell podcast, Mulvaney, who is a biological man identifying as a transgender woman, offered a reason for the mounting attention and criticism following [his] promotion for Bud Light beer and a sports bra ad for Nike.
"The reason I think I'm an easy target is because I'm still new to this," Mulvaney said.
The agony. The misery. You got to feel for this guy. He has it rough. Someone strike up a mournful tune for him.
I mean, just think — in the past year alone, Dylan Mulvaney has:
- Pulled down at least $1.5 million in endorsements for women's products and other consumer goods.
- Gotten to meet with President of the United States Joe Biden for some incomprehensible reason.
- Been hugged by Drew Barrymore.
- Had his own live show in New York to celebrate 365 days of pretending to be a woman.
So you gotta feel for this guy. Life has been very, very hard for him. You can only imagine how bad it might get in the near future.
This year he might even make $2 million!
