The embrace of woke culture by American corporations is a super sensitive topic. It is an ongoing phenomenon, which has both, its admirers and detractors. Olympic athlete and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner seem to fall into the latter camp. She recently took to Twitter to bash Nike for their collaboration with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney while allegedly ditching Olympic hero Allyson Felix.
This snub to Felix and embrace of Mulvaney has really irked Jenner. She believes that this move is super hypocritical on the part of the iconic brand. It has the cloak of inclusion, while in reality, it is exclusionary. Although she was happy about the success of the trans influencer, her issue was with the maltreatment meted out to the Olympic athlete by Nike.
Caitlyn Jenner criticizes Nike’s ‘woke’ partnership with Dylan Mulvaney
American media personality Caitlyn Marie Jenner has recently slammed the world’s largest athletic apparel company, Nike. After it was revealed that transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney is a Nike paid ambassador, the former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete Jenner slammed the sportswear company on Twitter.
She took to her Twitter on Thursday and wrote,
“As someone that grew up in awe of what [Nike co-founder] Phil Knight did, it is a shame to see such an iconic American company go so woke! We can be inclusive but not at the expense of the mass majority of people, and have some decency while being inclusive. This is an outrage.”
EQUALITY > INCLUSIVITY (STOP TRYING TO ERASE WOMEN). The differences between men and women are real and are a good thing! It doesn’t make trans ppl a bad thing, either. Why is it so black and white with the RADICAL RAINBOW MAFIA?! https://t.co/iRh7NNsfFa

Caitlyn Jenner calls Nike’s partnership with Dylan Mulvaney an outrage
Caitlyn Jenner is enraged by Nike’s new endorsement deal with Dylan Mulvaney. The social media personality expressed her opinions in a Twitter post, saying that the brand is being “so woke” by paying the trans influencer but not Olympic athletes like Allyson Felix.
An English social media star Oil London criticized Nike’s decision and wrote,
“Let’s talk about Nike…a brand that treats men like Dylan Mulvaney that pretend to be women better than it treats women. In 2018, Nike Brand Ambassador and Model + 10 x Olympic Medalist Allyson Felix got pregnant.”
“Nike then offered her 70% less pay than her original contract with the brand and gave her no guarantees of paying her if her performance as a brand ambassador declined during her pregnancy and gave her no maternity protections. Instead of being treated so unfairly, Allyson left Nike and 2 years later launched her own incredibly successful women’s brand, Athleta.”
Many internet users supported Jenner after she expressed her views on the matter, while others condemned her for making controversial remarks. Read some of the tweets here.

Babe, honestly I haven't met one person in the real world who actually likes you.
We have ALL switched baristas to get away from you.

You only “transitioned” to take the attention away from you killing someone with your vehicle and it couldn’t be anymore obvious at this point. You can project and blame the LGBT+ until the checks stop coming.
