Jamie Foxx Made a Dumb Joke About Bruce Jenner Transitioning Last Night

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Last night at the iHeartRadio music awards, host Jamie Foxx tried out some of his prime “hardy har har, Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman” material. Turns out that a lot of people—mainly the ones who don’t find transitioning to be a punchline in and of itself—weren’t all that amused.

“Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances. He will be here doing a his and hers duet by himself,” Foxx said in his opening monologue. “…I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”

While his joke was met by laughter from the audience, many viewers found it transphobic and in poor taste. (I simply find it unfunny and not clever.)

So many legitimate ways you can make fun of the Jenner/Kardashians. Bruce Jenner’s transition (which has yet to be publicly confirmed) is not one of them.


Kontinuing to keep up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian is apparently terrified that Amber Rose will reveal the existence of a secret Kanye West lovechild in her new tell-all. “Kanye glosses over his dirty-dog past, but he has a long list of former conquests—including groupies, exotic dancers, students, video vixens and cocktail waitresses,” a source tells OK! “Kim is obsessed with the idea that there’s a child out there who’s going to come after his fortune.” [OK!]

In her OWN interview with Iyanla Vanzant, Karrueche Tran discussed her recent breakup with Chris Brown, saying, “I feel hurt because the man I loved betrayed me. I will never again let a man disrespect me.”

She continued:

“I still love him. I’ve changed to help him—go to church, pray, yoga, meditate—if he were to change, we would be in a better place, but that’s the problem. He did give me love. Maybe it wasn’t the right love or the same level but he’s a product of his environment growing up. There’s no doubt in my mind that Chris loves me. I know he does.”

I find it comforting that no matter how bad my future breakups get, I’ll never be famous enough to have Vanzant try to manipulate me into tears on national television.
