Michelle Blanc says comment is transphobic

Yesterday, a comedy duo from Montreal, called Sèxe Illégal, posted this comment on their Facebook page: Michelle Blanc devrait jouer au football. Sa transformation est déjà faite pis personne veut faire de touché dans sa zone.

The comment reads "Michelle Blanc should play football. Her two point conversion is done and nobody wants to touchdown in her end zone."

Sèxe Illégal have more than 18,000 followers. Some 40 people commented on the post.
More than 200 liked it and a dozen or so people shared the post.

One of those people is Michelle Blanc herself. who posted the comment on her blog and on twitter, writing "On apelle ca de l'humour." We call this humour.

For those of you who don't know her, Michelle Blanc is an author, speaker, business woman and a world-renowned blogger specializing in e-commerce, online marketing and social media. She is also transgendered. To get her reaction to the comment made, we've reached Michelle Blanc from her home in Montreal.
