Dylan Mulvaney had sought a change of scenery in Peru Monday “to feel safe” as the blowback from her partnership with Bud Light continues to unravel.
The transgender influencer said she no longer felt safe at home in the US after raising ire among critics over becoming a rep for the beer brand in a March Madness contest.
After finally returning to social media in April following a tight-lipped hiatus, Mulvaney is now seemingly doing some solo travel around the world to get her mind off things back home.
Alongside a video of herself interacting with llamas, the 26-year-old said she booked a trip to South America in a desperate bid to “feel something.”
“Okay surprise,” she told fans in a TikTok video. “I’m in Peru! I’m at Machu Picchu. Isn’t this so beautiful?”
“I came here to feel something. And I definitely have. I have done shaman ceremonies that were like 10 years worth of therapy, it was wild,” she explained.
“I’ve seen a lot of llamas. The people here are so kind. I feel very safe here. It’s a little sad that I had to leave my country to feel safe but that will get better eventually.”
Mulvaney’s current state is a far cry from April when she opened up about the mass trolling she’s been subjected to following the partnership.
The influencer claimed she was “an easy target” for online bullies, saying trolls intentionally twist her words to blast the transgender community.
“The reason that I think I am so…I’m an easy target is because I’m so new to this,” Mulvaney said on the “Onward with Rosie O’Donnell” podcast. “I think going after a trans woman that’s been doing this for like 20 years is a lot more difficult. I think maybe they think that there’s some sort of chance with me … But what is their goal?”
Mulvaney admitted that while the trip is going well, but has started to miss some home comforts.
“I am dying for some Trader Joes rolled chili lime chips but other than that I am so content,” she told fans. “Most of all this trip has me feeling like my own best friend again. And that is the best feeling in the world.”
It’s unclear why Mulvaney, an outspoken trans activist, landed on Peru as the destination of her trip.
The country does not recognize same-sex partnerships as marriage, however, it does allow people to change their genders without surgery.
Following Mulvaney’s partnership with Bud Light, Anheuser-Busch has lost more than $27 billion in market cap.
The beer brand sent Mulvaney a custom can with her face on it to celebrate her “365 Days of Girlhood,” and also partnered with the trans star for a March Madness promotion — sparking mass outrage on social media.
The disastrous aftermath has forced a former Anheuser-Busch executive to speak out on the ill-fated partnership which was deemed “a mistake.”
Speaking to Fox Business on Monday, Anson Frericks — who worked for the beer maker for nearly 11 years as its president of operations until April 2022 — said that while he’s stunned by how much money the company has bled.
“I’m even more shocked, though, about the lack of clear response that the current CEO has delivered during this crisis,” he shared.
