The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh called for everyone at Fox News who aided in creating and promoting a controversial segment promoting chemical castration for children to be fired for celebrating that a 14-year-old girl named Ryland has been subjected to radical transgender ideology and practices since she was a baby.
“I know for a fact that many people at Fox do not approve of this and never would have agreed to air radical far left trans propaganda,” the “What is a Woman?” documentary creator tweeted on Friday afternoon. “But Fox reporter Bryan L[l]enas chose to do this story and someone at Fox chose to put it on the air. Everyone involved should be fired immediately.”
In the segment aired on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday, Fox News Correspondent Bryan Llenas explained in a voiceover that Ryland’s parents began sex experimentation on the child after determining that “Before Ryland could even speak, ‘he’ managed to tell his parents that he is a boy.”
“The poor kid is 14 now with a permanently altered body, condemned to live forever with an identity imposed as a small child. It is horrifying, evil, and sick. And it is what Fox chose to promote,” Walsh added.
“The reporter says that the child announced a new gender as a toddler. Does Fox want us to believe that BABIES can choose their gender? This is the most extreme, radical, dangerous form of gender ideology. And it’s being promoted on Fox News,” Walsh continued.
Walsh said while he is grateful to have been given a platform by Fox News “many times,” he will risk his relationship with the network to call out the “evil lunacy” encapsulated in the 8-minute clip highlighting the YouTube family.
Walsh also called on Fox News viewers to “demand that Fox publicly retract and apologize for the horrendous, dangerous propaganda it aired today and fire the people responsible for it.”
“Accept nothing less than full accountability,” he wrote.
Walsh’s outrage was not only shared by his colleagues at The Daily Wire, but other conservatives and Fox News viewers who agreed the network had overstepped its bounds.
David Reaboi, a senior fellow at the prominent, conservative think tank Claremont Institute called the decision to run the segment “sick.”
