“Dresses” Behaving Badly: Richard Dreyfuss Tries on 5 Outfits Before Shocking Anti-Trans Rant

Beverly, Massachusetts – Hollywood actor Richard Dreyfuss sparked controversy after a video surfaced of him trying on dresses at a local consignment shop before making anti-trans remarks at a public event. The surveillance footage obtained by TMZ shows Dreyfuss being assisted by store employees at Worthy Girl Consignment in Beverly before selecting a floral blue dress, later revealed to be from the plus-size brand Torrid and costing $20.99. The actor then went on stage at the Cabot Theater, wearing the dress, and delivered inflammatory remarks targeting the transgender community.

The staff at Worthy Girl Consignment expressed their disappointment and shock over Dreyfuss’s behavior, with one employee stating that the actor’s rant insulted their main clientele, the LGBTQ+ community. The store, known for its pro-LGBTQ+ stance, had a Pride flag displayed on its storefront, further highlighting the irony of Dreyfuss’s actions. Despite the store’s support for the LGBTQ+ community, they were caught off guard by the actor’s controversial remarks.

It remains unclear whether Dreyfuss was aware of the irony in choosing a store that openly supports the LGBTQ+ community. However, in response to the incident, the store is creating a Pride shirt in reference to the controversy, with proceeds going to the North Shore Alliance for GLBTQ+ Youth. The store is using the controversy as an opportunity to raise awareness and support for LGBTQ+ causes.

As the situation unfolds, there has been no response from Dreyfuss’s representatives regarding the incident. The actor’s actions have raised questions about accountability and the impact of public figures’ words on marginalized communities. The backlash serves as a reminder of the importance of promoting inclusivity and respect for all individuals, regardless of their gender identity. The incident at Worthy Girl Consignment serves as a cautionary tale of the consequences of spreading harmful and discriminatory rhetoric.
