Outrage After Comedian Lil Duval Jokes About Murdering Transgender People

Protested by Trans Comm. at Politicon

The hosts invited so-called comedian, Lil Duval to the show on Friday morning and at one point during the interview, Charlamagne brings up Donald Trump's tweets about the military ban on trans folks and the conversation devolved into hateful rhetoric about trans people with Lil Duval stating that if he found out he was with a trans woman, he would be so angry that he might kill her. This of course, makes no sense, because calling Mock pretty has nothing to do with finding transphobia amusing and if Charlamagne was here for the community, he would have called out Lil Duval and apologized for being so ignorant.

"The hosts laugh after using my image as a literal prop", she wrote of the two male hosts.

DJ Envy asked Lil Duval what he would do if he found out that a woman he was dating had been born a man, he didn't dance around it: he said he would murder that woman. Mock seized on the moment where Envy holds up her book to Duval, prompting an insult from the comedian.

Charlamagne tweeted on Sunday, that while he found what Lil Duval said to be amusing, he was innocent because he called Janet Mock "pretty". Just so we are all clear: On a Black program that often advocates for the safety and lives of Black people, its hosts laughed as their guest advocated for the murder of bBlack trans women who are Black people, too!

"Tell me she ain't pretty", Charlamagne pushes. "Boo boo: You are not original".

"Nope. That nigga doing his thing ... ain't finna get me", Lil Duval said.

"I'm not gonna kill transgenders", he countered. It's something I've written about extensively and even explored in my conversation with actress Amiyah Scott, who lost her sister Chyna Gibson when she was shot to death in New Orleans in February. "I don't care", he said, going on to add, "If one did that to me and didn't tell me, I'd probably be so mad I'd kill them".

To Duval, Mock asserted, "Your willful ignorance will not stop me from being exactly who I am". They understand I'm not coming from a place of malice.

"You manipulated me to believe this thing".

Mock wasn't the only one to condemn the comments: Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox spoke out on Twitter over the weekend, saying, "Some folks think it's ok to joke about wanting to kill us". It hurts my spirit cause this isn't amusing.

AfterBuzz TV caught up with Charlamangne at the Pasadena Convention Center after his onstage appearance/interview at Politicon where he caught the wrath of transgender activists in the audience. It is very unfortunate that we live in a world where people who are different are strongly disliked and looked down upon.
