Golden Globe winner Charlize Theron sent a threatening warning to people who disagree with drag queen events.
Theron, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress, was listed among Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.
“We love you queens! We’re in your corner,” the liberal 47-year-old actress said.
“We’ve got you, and I will f*** anybody up who is, like, trying to f*** with anything with you guys,” she added.
Theron is known for appearing in numerous Hollywood films, such as The Devil’s Advocate (1997), Mighty Joe Young (1998), The Italian Job (2003), Hancock (2008), Mad Max (2015), and many others.

She recently participated in the “Drag Isn’t Dangerous” telethon in order to raise money for LGBTQ causes.
Multiple Hollywood celebrities performed at the event.
Theron says she adopted a boy who identifies as transgender. “Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,” the left-wing actress said in 2019.

“Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’ So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.”
“They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide,” Theron said.
Theron said, “In all seriousness, there are so many things that are hurting and, really, killing our kids, right, and we all know what I’m talking about right now.”

“If you’ve ever seen a drag queen lip sync for her life, it only makes you happier, it only makes you love more. It makes you a better person,” Theron said.
“F***, if I could do a death drop right now I would, but I would probably like, break my hip,” she said.
More on this story via Daily Wire:
Theron concluded by asking viewers to “support all the great organizations that are out there helping all of this nonsense going away like it should, all of these incredibly stupid policies.”
These so-called “stupid policies” include legislation introduced in multiple states which would restrict sexually explicit performances in front of children. Many of these bills do not mention drag specifically but rather encompass any performances that are inappropriate for minors.
For example, Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill into law that was set to take effect April 1 that banned “adult cabaret entertainment” on public property or where minors can witness it.
Theron is a vocal advocate for LGBTQ people.
