Talking to BuzzFeed, the tweeter said that he explained to her in depth that he was letting out his opinion and added he tweeted the tweet for a bigger community to converse on the topic.

"I felt that it was very degrading," Love said, "being that I was publicly humiliated in a sexual manner."

"I think it's very disrespectful. Thousands of trans women are murdered [in] scenarios like [the one depicted in the post] and for people to make a joke about it is very disgusting."

And she clapped back.

"The tweet was basically fishing for transphobic comments just for pure entertainment, in my opinion.

"So I decided to stand up for myself."

People praised Love for her clapback.
