Róisín Murphy Shares Statement Following Blacklash To Her Transphobic Comments

In recent days an old Facebook comment from the Irish experimental pop singer Róisín Murphy has been making the rounds online. In the comment, under a post about the comedian and anti-transgender activist Graham Linehan, Murphy criticized the use of puberty blockers on children. “Please don’t call me a terf, please don’t keep using that word against women,” Murphy wrote. “I beg you! but puberty blockers ARE FUCKED, absolutely desolate, big Pharma laughing all the way to the bank. Little mixed up kids are vulnerable and need to be protected, that’s just true.” In the six days since a screenshot of the comment was posted on Twitter, it has generated a lot of negative feedback from Murphy’s progressive fan base, many of whom have viewed it as a betrayal of her previous support for the LGBTQ+ community. Now Murphy has shared a statement responding to the controversy.
