Tyrus’ Controversial Comments Unveiled
Tyrus addressed the situation defending Gaines, saying, “The comment to say she sucked, right? She did fight a trained man in a swimming pool to a draw, and he had her by weight, muscle, and length. That’s pretty [censored] impressive. Let’s not forget that.”

Spreading Fear and Hate
The Fox News contributor further vilified trans athlete Lia Thomas about her win in the 200m Freestyle, “A lot of women would have probably been a little intimidated because I’m sure he was doing what men do, intimidate, stare down, all that type – if you watch it back.”
