A makeup brand that had struck a partnership with Alice Cooper cancelled the collaboration after the hard rock legend spoke out against transgender-related treatments for minors.
Cooper had just announced the business deal with Vampyre Cosmetics a couple weeks prior.
As CBN’s Faithwire reported, Cooper, who is a Christian, called transgenderism “a fad” in a recent interview, during which he also spoke out against the “absurdity” of transgender ideology.

“[It’s] wrong when you’ve got a 6-year-old kid who has no idea,” Cooper said. “He just wants to play, and you’re confusing him[,] telling him, ‘Yeah, you’re a boy, but you could be a girl if you want to be.’ I think that’s so confusing to a kid. It’s even confusing to a teenager.”
He later added, “If you have these genitals, you’re a boy. If you have those genitals, you’re a girl.”
Those remarks landed the “Poison” singer in hot water.
At the end of last week, Vampyre Cosmetics released a statement distancing itself from Cooper and announcing anyone who already ordered the products will receive a full refund in lieu of their orders.
“In light of recent statements by Alice Cooper[,] we will no longer be doing a makeup collaboration,” the brand announced. “We stand with all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and believe everyone should have access to healthcare. All pre-order sales will be refunded.”
Other recording artists have spoken out on this topic, too.
In June, former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider condemned transgender-related treatments for minors.
Although he considers himself an “ally” to the LGBT community, he said it is “irresponsible parenting” to allow children to undergo treatments that are — in many cases — experimental and irreversible.
“I’ve recently stated I do not believe young children are ready to decide their gender allocation,” he said. “I believe their choices should be supported and accepted by their parents, but I do not think kids have the mental capabilities to make rational, logical decisions on things of a magnitude that will affect them for the rest of their lives.”
