[Ed. – But why was she forced to apologize? The answer is more ridiculous than you can imagine.]
Actress Debra Messing tripped herself up on Saturday after tweeting a photo of vagina-shaped cupcakes (you can see the NSFW image here) in honor of International Women’s Day.
As a result, Messing faced heavy backlash on social media because she didn’t include transgender women without a vagina in her tribute to women.
Messing’s original post simply featured the photo of the cupcakes along with the caption “Happy International Women’s Day! Powerful, beautiful, and sweet.”
The “Will & Grace” star apparently received a deluge of comments criticizing her for assuming all women have a vagina, and implying a vagina symbolizes all of womanhood, so she expounded on her original post with an apology.
“I want to apologize to my trans sisters,” she wrote. “This photo was supposed to be light, & sassy. The first thing I thought when I saw this photo was wow how wonderful. Each one is unique in color and shape and size.”
Messing went on to point to the adult film industry for brainwashing people into believing a distorted view of what a vagina is supposed to look like.
