Dylan Mulvaney Says She’s ‘Having Trouble Sleeping’ After Backlash

Dylan Mulvaney has admitted having trouble sleeping since the Bud Light controversy and backlash.

The TikTok star recently appeared on an episode of the ‘Dear Schuyler’ podcast, hosted by trans athlete Schuyler Bailar, and questioned what psychological effects she will face after being called a man ‘thousands of times a day.’

While speaking to her fellow transgender activist, Mulvaney said Transphobia has become ‘increasingly blatant’ in the US, and there has been a lot of uproar and debate on the issue lately.

“Now there are hundreds of thousands of people that do not like me, and I still sometimes can’t sleep, but it in a weird way has been a blessing to sort of break that people-pleasing mentality,” Dylan told Schuyler on Monday’s podcast.

“Because I can’t, there’s no way that I can win those people over.”

She added that her social media accounts have become a cultural war zone after announcing her partnership with Bud Light last month.

She also said she wouldn’t have accepted the partnership offer had she known it would cause such a huge stir.

“Now trying to be a little bit more diligent in what I’m accepting, because I kind of at the beginning, I took everything because I was in a scarcity mindset of like, ‘Oh my God, this might only last for so long,’” she admitted.

The Trans activist, 26, who gained millions of followers on TikTok and Instagram after transitioning into ‘girlhood,’ sparked controversy when brands like Nike and Bud Light announced her as their new spokesperson last month.

On April 2, Dylan, a biologically male individual who began transitioning from man to woman in 2021, shared a promotional video for Bud Lights on her Instagram and told her 1.8 million followers that she is so proud to be the brand’s newest spokesperson.

“Happy March Madness!! Just found out this had to do with sports, and not just saying it’s a crazy month! In celebration of this sports thing @budlight is giving you the chance to win $15,000! Share a video with #EasyCarryContest for a chance to win!! Good luck! #budlightpartner,” the caption read.

The posts received massive outrage and critical remarks from conservatives who accused the brands of pushing ‘gender propaganda’ per New York Post.

The partnership also caused the sales of the brand to plummet after many people, including musicians like Kid Rock and Country singers John Rich and Travis Tritt, severed ties with the brand.

“I’ve been wondering a lot this past week what the psychological effects are, and will be, of being called a man thousands and thousands of times a day,” she told Bailar on the podcast.

“I want to be accessible to the right people but in other ways, if one person ruins it for us all I can’t check the DMs, or I have to limit the comments,” the influencer added.

Dylan also said the negativity and hate comments have made her more resilient, but at the same time, she didn’t want to lose her sanity and sensitivity.

“What would make me more sad than anything is if I was too hardened as a person or become jaded or not care, because I care so deeply that I like that part of myself. Sometimes I think that we need to find the balance there,” she said.
