Ex-NFL Coach Tony Dungy Spreads Kitty-Litter Myth And Twitter Gets Catty

0

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy on Wednesday regurgitated a debunked far-right complaint that schools are using litter boxes for students who identify as cats ― and he took a clawing on social media.

Dungy, now a football analyst for NBC, responded to a Daily Wire report about a Minnesota state proposal that would place menstrual products in boys’ school bathrooms.

“That’s nothing,” the former Indianapolis Colts coach tweeted. “Some school districts are putting litter boxes in the school bathrooms for students who identify as cats. Very important to address every student’s needs.”

The urban legend has been powered by “politically conservative types who oppose LGBTQ+ rights and gender nonconformity,” the Indianapolis Star noted. (The canard may have started after some Colorado schools requested kitty litter to place in buckets for students in case of classroom lockdowns due to threats.)
