Washington, D.C., by Vesper Henry – Social media celebrity Dylan Mulvaney has garnered a following of over 8 million people on TikTok since coming out as a trans woman in March. These followers follow her as she chronicles her transition story day by day.

In an episode of Ulta Beauty’s YouTube series “The Beauty Of…” on “Girlhood” on October 13, Mulvaney collaborated with genderqueer hairstylist and host David Lopez. This caused reactionary criticism, which ended in the hashtag #BoycottUlta trending on Twitter.

The purpose of every episode of the series is to highlight individuals who do not conform to culturally accepted notions of beauty (past episodes include “The Beauty Of… Fatness with Virgie Tovar”). During the course of the 50-minute interview, Mulvaney talked about her gender identity and recent experience transitioning.

Right-wing commentators and transphobic Twitter users, like Blaze Media podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey, expressed outrage over Mulvaney’s remarks regarding her ability to one day become a mother and the Ulta Twitter account’s description, “Trans females can do it all.”

Even Stuckey produced a whole podcast episode about it later.

Additionally, Turning Point USA contributor Lauren Chen said it is “weird” for a trans woman to be content with herself.

In response to online hostility, Ulta concealed and disabled comments on the episode; however, on October 16, the business followed up with a two-part Twitter post defending both the episode and the premise of the series.

Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire, who has recently come under fire for remarks supporting underage marriage and pregnancy, criticised the firm for its response.
