Jimmy Fallon Under Fire for Calling Trans Actor ‘Bud’

via The Jimmy Fallon Show

Jimmy Fallon called trans actor Hunter Schafer “bud” during an interview on The Tonight Show, drawing criticism from fans who argued the term is masculine-coded and inappropriate.

Schafer, who identifies as female, was promoting The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes on the show.

Viewers expressed offense at Fallon’s use of “bud,” with some considering it disrespectful and indicative of how he views trans women. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

“As if i didn’t have reason enough to hate Fallon, he takes this opportunity to show that he doesn’t see Hunter as the beautiful, immaculate queen sitting before him,” one X user posted.

“To my cis readers, i hope you don’t see this as an overreaction—bud/buddy is unquestionably male-coded.”

“A slight minority of people might say it in a gender neutral way. but you obviously know it’s used exclusively for men most the time. even if Hunter isn’t bothered, it’s still gross and telling of how Fallon views trans women,” another said.

“I literally cant stand it when people call me bud. it’s so degrading and it really shows that they dont see me(or hunter or any trans woman rly) as a woman!! bud isnt something you say to girls im sorry.”

This incident has sparked controversy, especially as Fallon has used similar terms when addressing other female guests in the past.
