Alphabet community enraged over Herschel Walker ad featuring female swimmer who lost to Lia Thomas [VIDEO]

Herschel Walker came out with a new ad today featuring the female swimmer who lost to biological male swimmer Lia Thomas.

Riley Gaines sat down with Walker to call out Raphael Warnock for supporting biological males competing in women’s sports.

Here’s the ad:

I love this ad. What a great idea by Team Herschel to get the state’s attention by standing against what so many feel is a blatant injustice.

But the alphabet community isn’t happy about this at all, especially for the ad to come out two days after the shooting over the weekend.

LGBTQ groups blasted Georgia Republican candidate Herschel Walker on Monday and demanded he pull a new campaign ad in the Peach State’s Senate runoff that calls transgender women and girls “biological males” that should not be allowed to compete against female athletes.

The ad’s release comes just two days after a gunman fatally shot five people and injured at least 25 more at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance.

“Shame on Herschel Walker — and shame on every politician using LGBTQ lives as political props,” Nadine Bridges, executive director of the nonprofit One Colorado, told The Hill in a statement.

State legislatures across the country have introduced a flurry of measures targeting LGBTQ people in the past year, especially transgender youth, and LGBTQ activists have blamed inflammatory anti-LGBTQ rhetoric for contributing to Sunday’s shooting.

The suspect has been charged with murder and hate crimes, according to The Hill.

“There’s an undeniable nexus between this kind of baseless and hateful rhetoric and the violence leveled against our community this weekend in Colorado Springs and the violence being perpetrated against marginalized communities all across this country,” Bridges said Monday.

This is stupid. The ad is about an injustice and it has nothing to do with the shooting in Colorado Springs. Standing against biological males competing in female sports as transgenders is not spreading hate, nor does it have anything to do with violence of any kind.

Go Herschel!
