The actress liked the post and left several exclamation points in the comments section.
Fans expressed their outrage at what was believed to be the 23-year-old agreeing with the content of the post.
On 6 September, Schafer uploaded a series of snaps to her Instagram and captioned the post: “bye summer see u next year.”

The star wrote: “Also, while we are here- i hold absolutely no hatred towards non-binary folks.”
“I agreed with another t-girl’s post in which she pointed out an in-balance in the visibility and space-taken up between non-binary folks and binary trans women (particularly those of color and/or those who have resulted to sex work as a means of survival) that i think deserves attention/ re-evaluation (as far as resources and platforms go) within the LGBTQ+ community.”
She concluded the statement: “I am not a trans medicalist, and my ideology around transness does not align with transmedicalism, nor a disdain towards nb identifying people.”
Hunter is best known for her breakout role as Jules Vaughn in HBO hit Euphoria.
