Director backpedals on Caitlyn: Peter Berg Respect
Published: July 17, 2015
Director backpedals on Caitlyn: Peter Berg Respect, Peter Berg’s in full damage control mode … saying he has nothing but the “utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner” … after posting a meme about her earlier today that many people called “transphobic.”
The “Ballers” producer/co-star just went to Instagram and wrote, “I have the utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner and I am a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere.”
It’s a much different tone than the one he took earlier — when he posted an Internet meme that ripped ESPN for giving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Jenner instead of a military vet.
The original meme Berg posted included a pic of both a double amputee military vet and Caitlyn Jenner and included the caption, “One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs.”
In his new Instagram post, Berg tries to clarify his stance — saying, “I also believe that we don’t give enough attention to our courageous returning war veterans, many of whom have sacrificed their bodies and mental health for our country and our principals- principals that include the freedom to live the life you want to live without persecution or abuse.”
So far, Caitlyn has yet to respond to any of Berg’s comments.
