Richard Dreyfuss Angers Left by Blasting Transgender Ideology at ‘Jaws’ Event: ‘Bad Parenting’

Veteran actor Richard Dreyfuss provoked outrage from his leftist fans when he started unloading on radical transgender ideology during an event celebrating his legendary movie “Jaws.”

Dreyfuss was giving an interview at an event to celebrate the iconic Steven Spielberg film over the weekend.

He was speaking about his acting career before a screening of the classic shark thriller at the Cabot Theater in Massachusetts.

However, the Oscar-winning actor appeared to upset certain members of the audience when the conversation shifted to child gender “transitions” while he was interviewed on stage about “Jaws.”

Some patrons walked out of the event before the film even started when the actor shared his opinions on radical gender ideology.

According to audience members, Dreyfuss blasted the “bad parenting” of families who allow their children to undergo life-altering transgender treatments and surgeries.

“He said that the parents of trans youth, allowing them to transition, was bad parenting and that someday those kids might change their minds,” attendee Diane Wolf complained to The Boston Globe.

At one point, members of the audience shouted at Dreyfus after he said, “It’s not okay because when the kid’s 15, she’s going to say, ‘I’m an octopus,'” according to the Globe.

“I’m queer, I’m nonbinary,” attendee Sarah Hogg said.

“This is personal to me.”

“It’s one of those moments where you feel like you’re having an out-of-body experience.

“It was horrifying.”

The actor also reportedly caused an uproar after blasting Hollywood leftist Barbra Streisand and the radical Democrat operatives behind the #MeToo movement, as well.

In a video posted to YouTube, the actor can be seen walking onto the stage wearing a dress over his clothes and dancing to a Taylor Swift song.

Commenters claiming to be attendees described what happened afterward.


Alleged attendees described what happened afterward in the video’s comment section.

“I was there – he talked about how he didn’t like working with Barbra [Streisand] because she wasn’t ‘submissive to him enough as a woman’, and then went on about how he doesn’t support MeToo or LGBT, and how 10-year-olds shouldn’t be able to get surgery,” one person wrote.

“Later on he jabbed the crowd by mentioning his ‘famous Republican friends’ and so on.

“Just felt really bizarre and out of place.

“About 20 to 30 people walked out, not ‘hundreds’ like some articles state.”

Another person also said the actor made some “snide sexist comments” about how Streisand was difficult to work with because she was a “woman who should be submissive.”

The crowd reacted negatively to these remarks, the commenter wrote.

Dreyfuss also upset the crowd after saying the #MeToo movement is made up of “people who make me vomit.”

Some audience members booed and heckled the actor after he continued blasting the transgender movement, according to this attendee.

“About a third of the theater up and left, with someone near me in the balcony yelled out ‘See ya later grandpa!'” the comment said.

“There was also a woman in the back left of the balcony heckling quite loudly whenever Richard made his rude/ sexist remarks (I believe she was eventually escorted out after his anti-LGBT+ spiel).

“Interviewer steered it back on track, but the evening was totally soured.”

Not everyone who attended the event was angry at the actor, however.

On the Cabot Theater’s Facebook page, one patron argued that the audience members who left were actually the intolerant ones.

“I was in the back row of the top balcony, and I would say about 20 to 25 people left,” Kyle Fiske wrote.

“It’s a sad state of affairs where people are so emotional and sanctimonious that they can’t even stay in the same room with someone they disagree with.

“And ironically, that’s the whole theme of Dreyfuss’s book, that people need to be able to tolerate and engage with people on different sides of the political spectrum, as that’s a foundational requirement of a democratic system.

“But hey, we are in the land of the witch trials – I guess he’s lucky he got out of the theater without being pressed with stones!”

Despite the meltdowns from some audience members, video from the event does show the crowd cheering along to Dreyfuss’s comments.


The venue later apologized to patrons who were upset by the actor’s remarks.

In a groveling statement, Cabot executive director J. Casey Soward said:

“The views expressed by Mr. Dreyfuss do not reflect the values of inclusivity and respect that we uphold as an organization.

“We deeply regret the distress that this has caused to many of our patrons.

“We regret that an event that was meant to be a conversation to celebrate an iconic movie instead became a platform for political views.

“We take full responsibility for the oversight in not anticipating the direction of the conversation and for the discomfort it caused to many patrons.”
