The biological male trans-activist slated to be the keynote speaker at the YWCA Regina annual Women on Distinction Awards accused Rebel News of being "hatemongers" on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.
Johnstone sits on the national board of the YWCA, a 150-year-old organization once purported to support and advance opportunities for women and girls.
Johnstone will be the headliner at the YWCA Regina Nutrien Women of Distinction Awards on May 6.
Another target of a Rebel News campaign weighed in on the controversy.
Nili Kaplan-Myrth, a hypochondriac TV doc turned hypersensitive school board trustee in Ottawa who censored parents critical of gender theory at a school board meeting, tweeted in support of Johnstone.
Kaplan-Myrth's tweet said:
They tried that with me. They have one playbook. I’m so sorry they are harassing you, Fae. In solidarity.
