Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman, because he identifies as a woman! LOL, I know right?! Apparently you can’t make jokes about that kind of stuff, because you might be transphobic and someone might kill themselves. Take it away, Jamie Foxx.
Some viewers of the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night took to social media to vent about the opening monologue, saying one controversial joke crossed the line. Musician and actor Jamie Foxx hosted the second annual awards show in Los Angeles. “We got some ground-breaking performances, here too, tonight,” Foxx said. “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
Christ. Look, I get transgendered people face a lot of discrimination. Welcome to the Earth. On Earth, people make jokes about you. It happens. Ignore them and move on. And let’s not pretend, this is some new thing that you all want to be mad about. Where was the outrage when Jenner get castrated halfway through Season 2?
