Jenny McCarthy Tweets Transphobic Joke in Response to J-Lo’s Boyfriend Drama

Despite leaps and bounds recently made in the from of Laverne Cox’s TIME cover and Marriott’s LGBT portrait campaign, people just continue to be reeeeally fucking ignorant when it comes to the issue of transgender acceptance. The latest example is The View‘s Jenny McCarthy, who tweeted a LOL-free “joke” in response to rumors Jennifer Lopez‘ backup dancer boyfriend Casper Smart is sexting transgender model Xristina Marie:

Haha, get it? It’s funny because it’s confusing whether Marie is a man or a woman! If you’re five years old, that is. Granted we didn’t expect much from a woman who has until now focused the brunt of her ignorance in spearheading a dangerous and medically discredited campaign against childhood vaccination. Maybe a good old gluten-free diet will cure her lack of education.
