Hulu appears to have removed the “Dr. Phil” episode that featured The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh as a guest.
Users of the popular streaming service noticed this week that Walsh’s episode, Season 20, episode 83 of “Dr. Phil,” which aired on Jan. 19, is missing from the platform, despite other episodes of “Dr. Phil” remaining available.
Hulu did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
The episode featured a passionate debate about gender and biology that sparked strong reactions on social media from critics on both sides, including venom from leftists who were left incensed by Walsh’s appearance.
Here’s the part on Dr Phil where I demonstrate that the “gender experts” cannot even define the word woman or explain what they mean when they use it

I have heard from a lot of people that my episode of Dr Phil is mysteriously missing from Hulu even though literally every other episode is available https://t.co/19kEMkKt62

“What is a woman? Can you tell me what a woman is?” Walsh asks two “nonbinary” LGBT activists, Ethan and Addison, on the panel.
“No, I can’t,” Ethan responded. “Because it’s not for me to say. Womanhood looks different for everybody.”
“What do you define a woman as?” Addison interjected.
“An adult human female,” Walsh answered, adding that a woman’s DNA reflects that she is female.
After some more back and forth, Walsh pressed, “You stood up here and said, ‘Trans women are women.’ Tell me what you mean. What is a woman?”
“Womanhood is something that … I cannot define,” Addison admitted.
Addison responds that “womanhood” is an “umbrella term” that describes “people who identify as a woman.”
“Identify as what?” Walsh shot back.
“As a woman,” Addison repeated.
“What is that?” said Walsh.
Addison also accused Walsh of wanting to “reduce” women and men down to “their genetics, our genitals, our chromosomes.”
“No,” Walsh responded. “What you want to do is … appropriate womanhood, and turn it into, basically, a costume that could be worn.
After the episode aired, Addison took to Instagram to complain that they felt tricked by the “Dr. Phil” producers into appearing on the show and had been experiencing nightmares.
“Since the taping, Ethan and I have been experiencing a heightened level of anxiety to the point that we’ve had numerous nightmares and depression spirals over the last month,” Addison posted on his Instagram story under the username “break the binary.”
Walsh responded to the activists’ complaints in a tweet.
“The other guests on the ‘Dr. Phil’ panel are complaining that I gave them nightmares,” Walsh tweeted. “I attacked them by asking them to define the words they were using.”
Meanwhile, leftists smeared Walsh as a bigot and attacked Dr. Phil for giving the conservative podcast host a platform to discuss biological realities and defend women-only spaces.
Critics spat expletives at Dr. Phil on social media and attempted to cancel him, accusing him of “spreading transphobia to the masses.”
Meanwhile, Walsh was called everything from “a literal self proclaimed fascist” to “a terrible human being who’s narcissistically proud of his bigotry & hatred.”
