During a December 11 segment on Fox News’ America’s News HQ, host Shannon Bream invited former Macy’s employee Natalie Johnson and Mathew Staver, founder of the anti-LGBT Liberty Counsel, to discuss Johnson’s recent termination from her job in San Antonio, TX.
Johnson was fired earlier this month after she violated Macy’s non-discrimination policy by challenging a transgender teenager who chose to use the woman’s changing room. With the help of the Liberty Counsel, she has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
During the segment, Fox’s Bream listened quietly as her guests repeated a number of anti-trans smears, including referring to the transgender teen as “a man… wearing lipstick” and promoting theright-wing myth that transgender protections put women and girls “in jeopardy”:
