Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

The Blaze’s Dana Loesch mocked transgender people and hyped the bathroom predator myth on her show with a skit of a man walking into the women’s restroom saying “I'm Matilda, I’m identifying as a lady today, I hear you guys have champagne and cookies in here.”  

During the April 20 edition of her show on The Blaze TV, Loesch criticized celebrities boycotting North Carolina after the passage of the so called “bathroom bill,” aimed at discriminating against the LGBT community. Later that evening, Loesch tweeted the video claiming “It's obvious why everyone wants to use the #womensbathroom.” The tweet linked to the video from Loesch showing a man with a beard walking into a women’s restroom claiming “I’m identifying as a lady today”:

 

The Blaze has a history of ridiculing serious issues with horrible skits. Previously, The Blaze's Stu Burguiere reenacted rape scenarios with men portraying women being raped in an effort dismiss rape statistics as “massively” inflated.
