Megyn Kelly blew up on Twitter after a biological male trans golfer was declared the winner of a Women’s Professional Golf Tournament.
The host of the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast told her two million followers on Monday that trans golfer Breanna Gill winning the Australia Women’s Classic was a “fraud” and more.
“This is a biological man, a fact not even mentioned in much of the major press coverage celebrating ‘her’ win over the actual women in this tournament,” Kelly tweeted.
“It’s a fraud, it’s immoral, and it HAS TO STOP,” she added.

The former Fox News host tweet included a tweet from the official account for the WPGA Tour of Australasia that read, “Showing nerves of steel, Breanna Gill triumphed in a playoff for her first professional win at the AusWomensClassic! [GolfNSW] | feelNSW | NewSouthWales.”
Kelly wasn’t the only one who was upset about Gill. Former professional college swim star Riley Gaines — who spoke out after having to compete against biological male trans swimmer Lia Thomas — shared her thoughts.
Gaines tweeted, “Who’s surprised a male is being recognized as the ‘winner’ in the women’s category.”

“You’re right [WPGATour], real nerves of steel,” she added sarcastically.
One person wrote, “Breanna Gill (formerly male) wins golf open beating REAL women to take the top prize money. How is this fair? sharrond62 golf womensportforwomen.”

Another person wrote, “The [WPGATour] has turned off replies. Because this man (checks notes) beat women in a golf tournament. Breanna Gill is a Cheat. SaveWomensSports. Now the PGATourAus has 2 male winners and no women.”

At the time of this publication, the comments are still turned off on the WPGA post.
While another person tweeted, ‘Breanna Gill’ is of course not actually a woman, but hey-ho, who actually cares if women are beaten by men in frocks in women’s sports, [WPGATour] [GolfNSW]? AusNOTWomensClassic malefail.”
“[WPGATour] celebrating a man cheating & stealing prize money meant only for women is truly despicable!” another wrote. “Men are NOT women they are male & retain all that male advantage! Stop depriving women of their opportunities in sport! BreannaGill is male! AusWomensClassic SaveWomensSports.”
