Famous Hollywood producer, Peter Berg has boldly defended his Instagram post, saying he has nothing but much respect for Caitlyn Jenner but he believes the ESPN doesn’t give much attention to brave war veterans; hence his nasty meme post on Instagram on July 15.
The ‘Ballers’ producer/co-star took to Instagram on July 16 to clear things out after many people called his earlier post ”transphobic”. He wrote: “I have the utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner and I am a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere.”
The Hollywood producer earlier took to Instagram and 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 photo 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 by 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.
