Dylan Mulvaney has definitely hit back at trolls with song, after being targeted on social media again.

You can see her moving musical response below:

It comes after the trans content creator partnered with sportswear brand Nike to promote their new range of sports bras and leggings.

Since the heart-warming campaign went live, the TikTok star has been relentlessly bullied online with transphobic comments and people threatening to boycott the brand.

She announced her collaboration with the brand via Instagram, with a tongue-in-cheek story of Mulvaney working out.

“Alert the media — I’m entering my workout era,” teased the Broadway star, as she shared the news with her nearly 2 million followers.

While her fans were delighted to see the content creator feeling comfortable in her body, others saw it as an opportunity to taunt Mulvaney.

In addition to hateful comments left on her social media page, there have been calls from right-wing groups to boycott Nike.

Other high-profile athletes have also lashed out at the star including Olympian Sharron Davies and tennis pro-Martina Navratilova.

In a bitter tweet, the latter wrote: “I guess Nike couldn’t find a female athlete to sell sports bras.”

Thought the former Wimbledon champion came under fire from fans, she continued with a transphobic comment that read: “Sure. Next Dylan will be promoting tampons…”

While you’d think these sporting legends would have better things to do with their time, the criticism is just the latest backlash Mulvaney has had to face.

Throughout her transition, the 26-year-old came under fire for documenting the process on TikTok in an educational series called 365 Days of Girlhood.

Beginning last year, the series has quickly helped the Broadway actor gain a huge presence on the platform and her 10 million followers regularly logged in for the latest update.

However, the series recently ended with an emotional performance by Mulvaney, at the Rainbow Room, as she celebrated a year of living as a woman and her face feminisation surgery.

After this week’s controversy, the content creator shared a clip of herself during the performance singing the classic song 'No One is Alone'.

The content creator said that the tune, from the musical Into the Wood, was especially relevant given all the criticism she’d faced.

In the caption, she wrote: “It’s hard to see the light now, just don’t let it go… this song felt fitting for the week I’ve been having. All is well! Cheers.”
