TikTok post in three weeks following the furor over her recent partnership with Bud Light.For several weeks, the beer brand has been the focus of a deeply divided debate after sending transgender influencer Mulvaney a personalized can of its product.Earlier in April, Mulvaney shared a video on Instagram in which she explained that Bud Light had sent her a can with her face on it to commemorate 365 days of her living as a woman.

Amid the backlash, musician Kid Rock shared footage of himself opening fire on a stack of Bud Light cans. Country music star Travis Tritt reacted by announcing that Budweiser would no longer be sold at his concerts.Caitlyn Jenner, who transitioned to female in 2015, recommended an alternative beer brand as she commented on a Twitter post from British influencer Oli London, who previously identified as transracial, gender neutral and transgender.Amid the ongoing criticism, some executives at Bud Light recently took a leave of absence, including marketing head Alissa Heinerscheid and Daniel Blake, who oversees marketing for Anheuser-Busch's mainstream brands.Mulvaney broke her silence Thursday night, addressing the uproar and how it has affected her."It's day 9,610 of being a human and I'm gonna try to leave gender out of this, since that's how we found ourselves here.
I've been offline for a few weeks and a lot has been said about me, some of which is so far from my truth that I was like hearing my name and I didn't even know who they were talking about sometimes.
