Transgender Miss Universe Owner Under Fire For ‘Woman’ Speech

Critics call out JKN Global Group CEO Anne Jakrajutatip, a trans woman, for lecturing women on what it means to be a woman

  • During a speech in front of a live audience at the 71st Miss Universe competition, the organization’s new owner proclaimed, “From now on [the organization] is going to be run by women, owned by a trans woman for all women around the world to celebrate the power of feminism!”
  • Twitter users fired back, with conservative influencer James Bradley writing, “It’s not FEMALE EMPOWERMENT when the first ‘woman’ to own the Miss Universe pageant organization was born a MAN.”
  • Spectator editor-at-large Ben Domenech responded with the comment, “Dude, come on.”
