"Star Trek" Star Alice Eve Sparks Huge Controversy Over Bruce Jenner's Transition

"Star Trek" star Alice Eve is facing backlash from people after sharing an Instagram picture which commented on Bruce Jenner's transition.

"Nope," Eve, 33, started her caption (via Us Weekly), noting: "If you were a woman no one would have heard of you because women can't compete in the decathlon. You wouldn't be a hero. You would be a frustrated young athlete who wasn't given a chance. Until women are paid the same as men, then playing at being a "woman" while retaining the benefits of being a man is unfair. Do you have a vagina? Are you paid less than men? Then, my friend, you are a woman."

The image has been hugely criticized by numerous fans, who called her "blatantly transphobic" among other things. 

The actress has since removed the controversial photo.
