TikTok transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney responded to the backlash she was getting for her recent Nike paid partnership deal by posting a video to TikTok of her singing "No One Is Alone" from the movie and Broadway musical Into the Woods.

"It's hard to see the light right now. This song felt fitting for the week I have been having. All is well. Cheers," Mulvaney wrote on Instagram in response to the backlash.

Dylan Mulvaney had posted a picture of herself earlier in the week in Nike women's sportswear and says she has a paid partnership with the sneaker giant – a deal that would extend her power in the U.S. marketplace despite the backlash big name brands Bud Light and Kate Spade New York have already faced for their deals with her.

"Home for a moment and leaning into cozy workout wear life with @nikewomen's newest Zenvy leggings and Alate bra!," Mulvaney wrote on an Instagram post Wednesday. 

The 26-year-old Mulvaney made the post just days after the announcement that she has a paid partnership with the beer brand Bud Light.

Conservatives and others have criticized such partnerships, amid larger concerns about biological women now being marginalized and transgender-ism being pushed upon children in public-school curriculum without parental consent.

Mulvaney emerged as a social media sensation after transitioning from male to female in 2021 and has a TikTok account in which she documents each day of the transformation.

She has reportedly earned over $1 million from endorsements from Ulta Beauty and CeraVe among others, in addition to her Kate Spade and Bud Light deals. 

Mulvaney, also an actress, has 10.8 millions TikTok followers. 

She has also made multiple media appearances, including being a guest on the "Drew Barrymore Show," attending the Grammys and getting to interview President Joe Biden at the White House.
