Christian Wilkins has hit back at an online troll who criticized his Logies red carpet outfit.
An anonymous user tweeted earlier this week that “it’s not normal” for men to wear women’s clothes, adding: “STOP normalizing this bulls–t!!!” They added three photos of Wilkins on the red carpet, wearing a backless white gown.

Wilkins, 26, replied to the tweet sarcastically: “What is happening to the world!!!! Masculinity is ending!!! Burn everything!!”
Wilkins elaborated on his response in an email to 9Honey. “All I can really say is that I’m amazed at how vulnerable the patriarchy is that it can be threatened by a piece of silk,” he said.
“I loved my outfit, and felt amazing to wear it, especially so during Pride Month,” he continued.
“I hope that any young queer people see that there’s an amazing network of support and love out there.”
The majority of the responses to Wilkins’ red carpet choice were positive, many praising him for wearing something other than the standard tuxedo most men wear to the event.
Plenty of fans hit to his defense when he tweeted in response to the troll.
“She’s so mad you’re prettier than her and can pull off a dress which she’d most definitely be unable to… jealously IS a disease,” one Twitter user wrote.
“I think you’re a fabulous role model,” another added.
