Claudia Jordan’s most recent comments about transgender people are raising eyebrows and criticism.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star wrote a long Instagram comment with a “serious question” about trans folks and their physical make up post-transformation.

“If ‘she’ has breasts and a penis- is that a trans woman or a man with breasts?” Jordan wrote. “Or do they not become trans until having full gender reassignment surgery? It’s confusing and there’s NOTHING wrong with asking questions.”

Jordan would continue by defending ignorance about trans people with… ignorance.

“People should be allowed to agree/disagree,” she wrote. “Embrace or not-AS long as they keep it respectful and non violent. That is NOT the answer. I’m glad this interview is generating conversation though.”

The interview Claudia is referring to is one she did with Malik Yoba, who recently revealed he was attracted to trans women. During the interview, Yoba said he came to the realization of his attraction during his teenage years.

  1. Indya Moore wasn’t a fan of Claudia Jordan’s most recent comments though, and made it known on her social media. Via Twitter, the trans model slammed her questions.

    “Hi @claudiajordan can you shift your focus from beneath our clothes and underwear to the fact that 18 black trans women have been murdered this far,” Moore tweeted. “The latest a 17 year old girl Bailey Reeves? Why aren't your questions around how you can assist in protecting black trans women?”

  2. Other social media users also slammed Claudia Jordan. See what they had to say below.
