EJ Johnson has responded to reports that he planned to transition.
Rich Kids of Beverly Hills fans have asked whether EJ planned to transition (from male to female). Why? Because EJ often wore women’s clothes, shoes, purses and makeup.
EJ says fans are “ignorant” for assuming that his attire means he is a transwoman.
Friend and co-star Dorothy Wang recently commented that, whenever she posted photos of EJ on Instagram, fans asked whether EJ planned to transition into a woman.
EJ insists, he is not a transwoman. He is not transitioning. He just enjoys women’s fashion.
“If I come out in a Diane Sawyer interview and I’m like, ‘Diane, I just want to let the world know, I am becoming a woman.’,” EJ explained. “Until that day, everyone needs to have a seat.”
“People are just so ignorant and dumb sometimes,” EJ added.
Fans also questioned EJ’s weight loss (he lost 180 pounds).
“A few comment at me,” EJ revealed of social media comments about his weight. “Like, ‘I liked you before’, and I was like, well it’s not really about you. Like, if I want to look this way, like deal with it.”
