Conservative dating app “The Right Stuff” went viral on TikTok for poking fun at men in women’s sports.
The Right Stuff, founded by former senior Trump aide John McEntee, took to TikTok four months ago to playfully mock liberalism. The account has since gained more than 400,000 followers, 120 million views, and 17 million likes.
One TikTok, viewed nearly a million times, features footage of McEntee working out along with audio saying, “This is Emily. Her dream is to win the women’s national championship. But transphobic Republicans are keeping her from her dream.”
Emily deserves equal rights #fyp
“She may be five times as strong and ten times as fast as the other women, but she feels it’s her place to compete, and that’s all that matters,” the clip continues. “Emily deserves equal rights,” the satirical video’s caption reads.
Another TikTok portrays McEntee as a high school tennis player who wasn’t getting any playing time. Then, after he “switched” genders and began identifying as a woman, went on to win a state championship.
Seems fair to me! #fyp
One TikTok, which follows McEntee through Target’s “Pride” section, garnered three million views.
McEntee tells The Daily Wire that his team has “a blast making these videos and are thrilled to have such an engaging audience.” While McEntee is prominently featured in The Right Stuff’s viral videos, he credits the social media manager, who he calls “the brains behind the TikTok operation,” with the app’s success on the platform.
The social media strategy appears to be working. The dating app had 4,000 downloads in January, doubled that figure a month later, then doubled again in March.
