Young also mispronounced Mulvaney’s first name as “Dylvan” while describing the social media star to “CNN News Central” viewers Tuesday.
“He, of course, is the transgender person they were going to sponsor and go along with, with Bud Light,” Young said, using “he” instead of Mulvaney’s preferred “she.”
“But [trans activists] didn’t like how Bud Light didn’t stand by him after all this,” Young said, again failing to use the influencer’s preferred “they.”
Media Matters critic Ari Drennen shared footage of the less-than-2-minute clip, ripping it as an “unbelievably bad CNN segment.”
“God damn, that sucked,” agreed the media watchdog’s research director, Craig Harrington.
“Wow, absolute garbage segment,” a Media Matters follower wrote, while another called it “despicably poor ‘journalism.’”
“What horrible coverage and the pundit couldn’t even correct the misgendering of Dylan. This makes me sad,” another said.
