(EDGE) A New York-based drag queen and activist says a gay Donald Trump supporter who was recently profiled in the New York Times alongside his husband left a transphobic comment (now deleted) on Instagram. And they shared the screenshot to prove it.

Husbands Bill White and Bryan Eure were the subjects of the newspaper's piece called "How a Liberal Couple Became Two of N.Y.'s Biggest Trump Supporters." The story indeed detail the couple's path from supporting Democratic candidates like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to switching teams and backing Trump. The article goes on to say that the men will be throwing a $5 million fundraiser this winter for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.

And despite supporting a president who has attempted to block LGBTQ rights, specifically transgender rights, the men say they will continue to support LGBTQ causes.

"I don't like identity politics," Eure told the NYTimes.

Now performer and activist Marti Gould Cummings has shared a transphobic Instagram comment allegedly left by Eure.

The remark came after Cummings commented on Eure's Instagram post about the NYTimes profile. 

"This is shameful and disgusting," Cummings wrote. "Chelsea [Clinton] didn't wave at you, Hillary [Clinton] didn't take a photo so you jump ship...The incredible privilege you have shown in this article. 

"You could be using your wealth to help transgender people who Trump is actively discriminating against or you could use it to help families seeking asylum. You are both gross," Cummings added.

Eure responded back, according to a screenshot shared by Cummings to Instagram, with a hateful remark that has since been deleted.

"@martigcummings transgender is gross," he allegedly wrote.

Cummings added their own reaction in the caption: "Hey @euregram you can delete your reply but just to remind people that you posted it - here ya go."
