Jamie Foxx is under fire for making some controversial comments about Bruce Jenner while hosting the iHeartRadio Awards.
Jenner’s alleged transformation from a man to woman became a punchline for Foxx, who joked, “Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances—he’s doing a his and her duet all by himself … I’m just busting your balls, while I still can.”
A writer at Gawker responded to the story with this headline: “F*ck Jamie Foxx and His Bad Transphobic Jokes About Bruce Jenner,” and folks on social media have been coming for the comedian as well, including Perez Hilton who tweeted:
“Boo! Shame on you #iHeartAwards for allowing @iamjamiefoxx to be transphobic on national television! Those #BruceJenner jokes were wrong!!!”
You can watch video of the joke below. And do you think the joke was out of bounds, or are people overreacting?
