- Andrew Bogut has slammed the government
- The NBA legend is a vocal critic of ‘woke’ culture
- He criticised a plan to stamp out toxic masculinity
Andrew Bogut has hit out at Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese for ‘telling boys they are toxic’ in a social media rant.
Bogut, 38, a former NBA championship winner with the Golden State Warriors, is a vocal critic of the government and regularly posts about ‘woke’ culture.
On Thursday, the Australian took to X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to hit out at Albanese’s pledge to ‘help young men learn to have healthy, respectful relationships’ with women.
He wrote: ‘Dear @AlboMP
‘I’ll raise my two boys to be good people, without telling them they could be toxic because of their gender.

He wrote a letter to Anthony Albanese about a new policy on toxic masculinity
‘I’ll raise them without your Gov funded lackies telling them they are toxic simply because of how they are born.
‘I will however raise them to know just how toxic Governments are.’
It is not the first time the basketball legend has discussed controversial subjects. Earlier this year, he was labelled ‘transphobic’ after claiming a ‘biological male’ will be playing in women’s basketball this season.
‘Word is NBL1 South Women will have a biological Male playing this upcoming season. Are you ok with sacrificing the sanctity of Female Sport in the name of ‘inclusion’?,’ he wrote.
‘#GirlDads where are you? The hashtag is trendy until action is needed.’
It quickly ignited a storm of controversy, with some labelling him ‘transphobic’ and misogynistic, while others shared his outrage.
AFLW and NBL1 star, author Saraid Taylor, was scathing of Bogut, sarcastically thanking him for his ‘concern’, and labelling him ‘transphobic’ for his views.
‘Hey, thank you so much for your concern about the sanctity of women’s sport. It seems genuine,’ she said, in a brutal takedown on his social media post.
He said he will teach his two sons about how governments are toxic
‘If you wouldn’t mind using your energy to highlight legitimate issues women athletes face, instead of perpetuating transphobia, that would be so appreciated!
The furious star athlete then slammed Bogut for revealing what club he believed the ‘biological male’ played for – which was followed by a stream of outrage directed towards the club.
‘This is so wildly irresponsible. It makes me sad reading the majority of comments you receive on your tweets,’ said Taylor.
‘Does it make you sad? Or do you enjoy the power you have to cultivate hatred in the world?’
