CNN apologized Wednesday for misgendering transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney in a segment aired this week touching on Mulvaney’s role in a right-wing boycott against Bud Light and its parent company, Anheuser-Busch. Bud Light has faced months of conservative backlash over a brief partnership with Mulvaney in March that involved a sponsored Instagram post. Sales of the beverage have plummeted since then, and Bud Light in June lost its spot as the nation’s bestselling beer.

In a Tuesday segment on the controversy, CNN national correspondent Ryan Young used male pronouns to refer to Mulvaney, a transgender woman. Left-wing journalist Mike Sington shared the offending portion of the segment to show her disappointment. Transgender activist Erin Reed also slammed the news report telling CNN to bring trans people to talk about trans news. Liberal influencer Tim Peacock even accused the network of committing “hate speech” by getting Mulvaney’s preferred pronouns incorrect.

CNN anchor Kate Bolduan issued an on-air apology saying that transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney was mistakenly referred to by the wrong pronouns. She added, “CNN aims to honor individuals’ ways of identifying themselves and we apologize for that error.” Though CNN has apologized for the mistake, making it in the first place was not expected from the network.
