The Daily Wire’s Candace Owens roasted Ulta Beauty over its “girlhood” podcast featuring “two biological men” talking about what it’s like being a girl as they dress “up like a woman and pretend that that suddenly makes you so.”
Owens made the comments Tuesday during the “Candace Owens” show in an episode titled, “This Bizarre and Freaky Fetish is Taking Over American Politics.” During the podcast, she discussed the cosmetic company’s latest video titled, “The Beauty of Girlhood with Dylan Mulvaney.”
The cosmetic company’s video featured biological male transgender actor and influencer Mulvaney wearing a wig, a bow, and a “bright red dress” talking to another biological adult man, David Lopez, “a gender-bending” host with a beard, wearing a long blonde hair wig, talking about a dream about having a family and being a mom one day.
“And so they are basically on this podcast mocking what it means to be a woman,” Owens explained on her show. “As I say, now what it is become a caricature. This is Halloween. … They’re playing Halloween on a podcast and both of them are appearing dressed as women.”

“‘We’re talking all things girly’ as two grown men that have some form, some varying forms of mental illness,” she added. “Really what their mental illness is attention. That’s what it is. There aren’t all these weird categories of things to identify as that suddenly appeared in our society rapidly over the last five years.”
“But now rapidly everybody’s got something going on,” the host continued. “And everyone’s being given awards and podcasts for talking heroically about their experiences. Their experience they should be talking about is what it’s like to need so much attention, right? How desperate you must be to be so extreme on social media for likes that you dress yourself up like a woman and pretend that that suddenly makes you so. That is embarrassing and it needs to stop.”
The beauty company faced a backlash over the episode featuring the adult biological men, with customers blasting Ulta of making a mockery of womanhood. Ulta turned off comments on the YouTube video of the episode, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
