Jamie Foxx Blasted for Bruce Jenner Joke
Comedian Jamie Foxx made a few fans angry after cracking a joke about former Olympian Bruce Jenner during the opening minutes of the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday. Foxx, who hosted the event, made a joke about Jenner and his alleged transition into a woman in his monologue:
“We have 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. Look. I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
His comments did not go over well with viewers at home. Angry fans and supporters immediately took to Twitter to express their disapproval of Foxx’s jokes.

Totally unacceptable for the @iHeartRadio awards and Jamie Foxx to poke fun of Bruce Jenner for his gender change. SICKENING!

Oh yay, Jamie Foxx with the a few grossly transphobic Bruce Jenner jokes. Great way to kick off the #iHeartAwards. Blecch.
