Conservative transgender YouTube star Blaire White says her episode of Dr. Phil was AXED before airing – and that it may have been because she didn’t give producers ‘politically correct soundbites’ to use on topics like pronouns and trans sports
A conservative transgender YouTube star says her political leanings may have led to her episode of the Dr. Phil show being pulled.
Blaire White revealed this week that she’d filmed an episode of the daytime show centred on her reconciling with family members that had disowned her for being transgender, only to then have it yanked by the network before it aired.
In a lengthy YouTube video, the 28-year-old said that she was told by producers that it was removed for ‘legal reasons’ because she’d discussed members of her family who weren’t present for the taping, but Blaire said the excuse seemed like ‘bulls**t’.

‘I think this is just bulls**t because I’ve watched enough of the Dr. Phil show to know that there are people on that show all the time talking about people who are not on stage with them,’ she explained.
‘I’m thinking, and this is just me speculating, I have no way of knowing this for sure, I think that it’s possible that they filmed with me, and then they kind of looked more into who I was,’ she continued.
‘And maybe because I’m not necessarily daytime friendly they decided that it wasn’t going to be a good thing to air me.’
Blaire then said that her right wing politics may have played a part in the snub.

‘I think it’s possible that they disagreed with me politically and that was maybe a motivator,’ she said.
‘This is just me speculating, I don’t know,’ she added.
The influencer then admitted that she didn’t give producers ‘the politically correct soundbites they needed’ during filming.
‘They asked me questions about pronouns, trans sports, all this kind of stuff, where I obviously diverge from maybe the normal trans guests that they have.’

Despite her frustration with the situation, Blaire clarified that she wasn’t personally upset with Dr. Phil McGraw himself.
‘I’m a little bitter that they came to me to do this. They disrupted my life, wasted my time, contacted my family, opened wounds with my family that didn’t necessarily need to be opened if they weren’t gonna actually air it and give us help,’ she said of the show’s producers.
‘I don’t want this video to be me bashing [Dr. Phil]’, she explained. ‘This is more so the show.’
She added: ‘Dr. Phil himself was really lovely. His wife Robin was really lovely. I thought they were complete class acts. I have nothing negative to say about them as individuals.’
