The rock legend Alice Cooper is being targeted by the cancel culture mob this week, as he has lost out on a major cosmetics deal after daring to dismiss transgenderism as a “fad.”

Cooper Sounds Off

It also started last week, when Cooper dared to say that “woke” ideologies have gone way too far, particularly when it comes to children and transgenderism.

“I’m understanding that there are cases of transgender, but I’m afraid that it’s also a fad, and I’m afraid there’s a lot of people claiming to be this just because they want to be that,” the 75 year-old rocker said, according to Fox News. “I find it wrong when you’ve got a six-year-old kid who has no idea. He just wants to play, and you’re confusing him telling him, ‘Yeah, you’re a boy, but you could be a girl if you want to be.’”

Cooper Loses Cosmetics Deal

Vampyre Cosmetics has since responded by cutting all ties with Cooper.

“In light of recent statements by Alice Cooper we will no​​​​​​​​​ longer be doing a makeup collaboration,” the company said in a statement. “We stand with all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and believe everyone should have access to healthcare. All pre-order sales will be refunded.”

Vampyre has also scrubbed any cosmetics associated with this partnership from its website.

The website had previously stated that presale for the line of makeup had started on August 14, and that the line was tailored to Cooper’s style with “guitar- and amp-shaped makeup palettes and microphone-styled lipsticks.” Vampyre Cosmetics describes itself as a brand that is “proudly women owned, disabled owned and LGBT+ owned.”

“We believe gender is a construct and has no place in our business,” the brand’s website states. “We refuse to gender our products because they are for everyone.”

Social Media Users Respond

Social media users have been slamming Vampyre for effectively “cancelling” Cooper.

Cooper Doubles Down

In the initial interview that got him in hot water with the left, Cooper also gave his thoughts on the “woke” craze in general.

“The whole woke thing… Nobody can answer this question. Maybe you can. Who’s making the rules?” he asked. “Is there a building somewhere in New York where people sit down every day and say, ‘Okay, we can’t say ‘mother’ now. We have to say ‘birthing person.’ Get that out on the wire right now’? Who is this person that’s making these rules? I don’t get it. I’m not being old school about it. I’m being logical about it.”

“I respect people and who they are, but I’m not going to tell a seven-year-old boy, ‘Go put a dress on because maybe you’re a girl,’ and he’s going, ‘No, I’m not. I’m a boy,'” he added. “I say let somebody at least become sexually aware of who they are before they start thinking about if they’re a boy or a girl.”

Cooper concluded by saying that he thinks about things in a “logical way,” explaining that “if you have these genitals, you’re a boy. If you have those genitals, you’re a girl.”

It’s sad that we live in a time when daring to even question transgenderism is seen as a cancellable offense. While we’re sad to see Cooper lose out on this cosmetics deal, he’s likely better off not being tied to a woke brand like Vampyre Cosmetics anyway!
