Jamie Foxx Is Kind Of A Douche – Here’s Why (Video)
Jamie Foxx is kind of a douche – who knew?
While on stage hosting the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Foxx took a jab at former Olympian Bruce Jenner. The comedian poked a bit of fun at Jenner for his rumored transition, but only douchebags like Chris Brown thought it was somewhat funny.
Bruce Jenner has been in the media spotlight for the past few months after rumors surfaced that he was transitioning from male to female. He was said to be undergoing hormone treatment and was considering gender reassignment surgery so that he could become fully female. Jamie Foxx opted to use that in his comedy routine in order to cheapen what the Olympian is going through for the sake of laughter.
WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW:
Jamie Foxx hosted the iHeartRadio Music Awards and kicked off his hosting duties with the jab at Bruce Jenner. The comedian claimed that Jenner would be doing a performance at the awards show doing a “his and her duet all by himself”.
Foxx said, “We got some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his and her duet – all by himself.”
After the joke fell somewhat flat to little applause (with the exception of a clapping Chris Brown), he added, “Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
Since the jokes went viral, Foxx has been blasted as being transphobic. Fans watching the awards show at home were quick to call out the comedian for his douchey on-stage behavior.
That transphobic joke about Bruce Jenner was not necessary & not funny at all #iHeartRadioMusicAwards

It’s a shame that Bruce Jenner can’t be left alone and his struggle is being used for the sake of comedic fodder. No one should be able to bully someone else because of their sexual orientation. It’s not like Jenner can control his desire to become a woman.
