Jamie Foxx Slammed By Khloe Kardashian Over Bruce Jenner Sex Change Jokes
Recently, Jamie Foxx hosted the iHeartRadio Music Awards and poked fun at Bruce Jenner’s gender transition.
The comedian took the stage for his hosting duties and claimed that the night’s performances would include a “his and hers” duet from the former Olympian “all by himself”. When the joke didn’t go over as well as he’d planned, he added, “Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
Now, it appears that Khloe Kardashian is coming to Bruce Jenner’s defense. In a new interview, she revealed that she felt Foxx’s digs were a pretty low blow. Foxx has already been called transphobic for his comments on what Jenner is going through, but Kardashian took it personally and spoke out in Jenner’s defense.
She said, “I just think it’s a low blow. I think it’s very mean, but you know, I wish him all the best. It is what it is. I just think – and I know Jamie, so I think that’s also why that’s a really low blow, but hey…Guess that’s what he felt the need to do for a little press.”
Bruce Jenner has yet to open up to the press about what he is said to be going through. According to reports, Jenner has had breast implants and is scheduled to undergo a gender reassignment surgery in May or June. His family members have been instructed not to speak about his “journey” to the media and he will discuss the transition in an interview with Diane Sawyer. That interview is set to air following the end of the current season of the family’s reality show.
Do you think that Bruce Jenner is really going through gender reassignment surgery this summer or do you think it’s just something that the Kardashian and Jenner families are letting run rampant for the sake of the spotlight? Hit the comments below and let us know your thoughts!
