Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac took to social media to blast the White House for celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter Sunday – before walking back his comments when he realized it always falls on March 31.

Isaac, 26, took to Twitter on Saturday to decry President Joe Biden’s proclamation of International Transgender Day of Visibility, the same day as one of the most important holidays in Christianity.

‘They want you to hate! This helps no one and only promotes division,” Isaac tweeted. ‘They know exactly what they are doing…’

‘We must be angry, but we must not lose the spirit of what tomorrow means! Don’t lose focus. Because He is risen, there is hope for everyone.”

Nearly an hour later, Isaac realized that the holiday is celebrated on the exact same day every year, leading him to publish a retraction.

“In the name of fairness, Biden recognized the day last year when it didn’t fall on Esther (Easter)!” Isaac wrote.

‘That’s important and to me it absolves the government of the charge of intent! Instead of deleting the tweet like it never happened, this is my good faith retraction lol.

‘The message is the same. Stay focused on what Resurrection Sunday is all about. Christ conquers sin and death for all who will believe.”

Transgender Day of Visibility has been celebrated on March 31 for a number of years to help promote the elimination of violence and discrimination based on gender identity and to provide transgender people with a platform to advocate for themselves.
