Adele has been chastised for telling a gender-neutral awards presentation that she enjoys “being a woman.”

Adele has been accused of transphobia after saying she likes “being a woman” at a woke gender-neutral awards presentation.

The “Rolling in the Deep” singer made the statement while accepting the Artist of the Year award at the Brit Honors on Tuesday, a newly created category that combines the traditional Best Male and Best Female Artist awards.

“I understand why the award’s name has been altered, but I adore being a woman and a female artist.” “Yes, I do!” She uttered this to a standing ovation.

“I’m very proud of us, I’m really proud of us,” she remarked.

Despite the audience’s backing in London’s massive O2 Arena, her comments sparked uproar online, making her the latest high-profile individual to be accused of being a TERF, or trans-exclusionary radical feminism.

Adele performed some of her new hits on the awards show stage.

A “staunch feminist” musician named Jacob begged his thousands of Twitter followers, “Please, no, ADELE can’t be a TERF.”

“Who’d have guessed Adele was a transphobe who would use her position to call for the trans community’s annihilation?” Another long-time Twitter user commented, “Especially the befuddled youngsters.”

Others told the Times of London that they had “lost a lot of respect for Adele” and that they would no longer “pay a cent on her songs.”

Many people rushed to the 33-year-old star’s defense after the attacks.

“Thank you so much, @Adele. Simply put, thank you. For using the two words, I’ve been chastised. Onjali Rauf, a novelist and refugee advocate, tweeted, “Woman. Female.”

Jane Symons, an author and media strategist, said she couldn’t decide whether to cry or yell.

Some complained that they had 'lost respect for Adele' after her comments.

I would have laughed at such a ridiculous suggestion a decade ago if someone had stated a woman would [be chastised] for the thought-crime of declaring she liked being a woman. “It’s occurring now,” she wrote.

Adele risks joining a group of “brilliant women” like “Harry Potter” author JK Rowling, who “have been hounded and tormented relentlessly, merely for standing up for their sex,” according to an op-ed in the Spectator.

“Adele’s message to girls and women was inspiring. Here was a lady, who had sold tens of millions of CDs, proclaiming her pride in being a woman to the entire world. “That’s something to be proud of, not ashamed of,” she wrote.

Despite the controversy, Adele picked up three trophies at last night's event.

The teacher said that “girls need role models and last night Adele stepped up to the plate. For that, she deserves applause, even greater than the adulation she received for her music.”
